The hotel is a little run down and doesn't offer any breakfast or anything. We stayed in a 2 bed suite, the room was a very large size room with two double beds and two couches that pull out to a bed. The A/C was cold and beds was comfortable. The outside of the hotels needs work and staff is...

This place is a joke the front desk clerk is a rude person. He got rude and nasty with me and my family because we didn't want to stay a week with the roaches and bed bugs crawling around us. So he told us that we had 15 mins to check out of the room and get of property if...

I would rather sleep in my car than this hotel. We could only bare to be there for 15 minutes maybe less. There was blood all over the walls and the beds. There is brown mold all over the bathroom. On top of that the stay in residence of the hotel made us feel very uncomfortable. They're all crackheads! DO...

Their is prostitution around the back area and the owner is aware of activities. They rent rooms out to dealers to sell drugs from their rooms and sexual activities. The cops need to do something because...

I made the mistake of trying to save money by renting a room at the ROYAL INN for a month. The Carpet was damp and sticky and the Carpet Cleaning Machine "had just broken". Mold was growing all through the carpet and even tho I don’t have allergies, Toxic Mold spores seriously attacked my eyes, irritating and reddening them till...

Avoid this place, we only stopped because we were absolutely exhausted (and could have ended up in a nicer place just two miles down the road...). We were given one of their "nicest" rooms, located in the far back of the complex. The "hotel" is mostly long-term guests, a few folks looked a little scary. Truck stops are nicer. See...

I and my friend stayed here and they are not friendly. The hotel is to far from town.they have accused us of things we didn't do. Not enough lights. There is black mold in the bathroom. This is not a good place to stay. We will not be back. My friends will not come here either.

Don't stay here! This place is nasty! The door had been broken in several times, the furniture is original from 1960 with blood stain bed(probably from bed mites), the carpel was very dirty, adjacent room lock was a piece of tape, the towels were just hand towels. NOT FOR FAMILIES! Paid for a week but did not stay one night....
