We made a nine-day road trip across the country, staying only at motels that cost $55 or less for a single room. This was the nicest such motel that we stayed in. It was clean and had many amenities that inexpensive motels don't usually have (fast wifi, pool, shampoo, king-sized beds...). It was nothing fancy, but we weren't looking for...

I was told there was a $10 deposit, and that was fine. The clerk initialed next to it on the registration card, but then when we checked out in the morning, the word "deposit" had been crossed out, and the $10 was added to the total. When I explained what the clerk had told me the night before, the morning...

I have been road tripping the States staying in multiple hotels and this has been by far the worst! It looks like a prison cell block and whilst the rooms are old but clean, the Lady at reception (presumably the owner) is extremely rude. She charged me a $25 cash deposit which was not disclosed on booking and then made...

Small place owned by a couple working hard to overcome a bad reputation. The room was a typical dated 1970's ambience, tidy and VERY clean. The carpet old, but cleaned better than the expensive places I have stayed. Comfortable beds, hot shower, cool A/C. The shower was an older aluminum framed type with some corrosion; NOT to be confused with...

We stayed 3 nights early November. The motel was dated but the room was clean, comfortable, and secure with maid service. Only one small sachet of shampoo was provided but the shower was fine and the wifi was acceptable. Breakfast consisted of 1 pastry and coffee. During our stay the bbq area was monopolised by working families staying there. Cozy...

Very old facility, but the shower was fine, the king mattress extra firm-permitting a good night's sleep. Cable TV provided many channels. The heater warmed the room. The microwave cooked my oatmeal in 2 min. We did not use the frig. The sheets were clean- no visible unwanted "guests." The hair dryer was helpful. It was not the Ritz-but for...

What a dirty filthy place. Run as fast as you can. Dirty rooms. Terrible service at the desk. Looks like the beds are old as hell. Lady will not refund your money. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND FIND A BETTER PLACE

RUN. RUN AWAY. This hotel is absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed. In addition to horrendous service (wouldn't give me extra towels without complaining!), there was a dead roach in the room, water stains on the walls, the water runs brown, the hot-water knob came off in my hand, the toilet leaked, the whole place smelled, the walls...
