Motel changed our room to 3 doors down without informing us. - Rooms are supposed to be non-smoking, but ours smelled like cigarettes. -... More

Bed creaky with springs popping through. Blood stains on bedspread. Dirt on sides of mattresses. No batteries in remote. Towels stunk. Dirt under the bed. Worst place I ever stayed. Wanted to sleep in the van. Wifi bad.

Of course they claimed our room wasn't available, but they had a much more expensive room we could have. One would think, since this was their mistake, that we... More
