While traveling I had my wife make the reservation. Had I not have been dead tired and the reservation pre-payed I would have looked elsewhere or slept in the car. Check in was easy, but exterior condition and the lobby presentation should have been a dead give-away to the condition of the rooms. I have stayed in $29.00 dumps tat...

One of the poorest excuses for a motel I've ever stayed in...and I've stayed in some rotten places. This run down reject from the seventies has peeling paint, mildew, stinks, and is more like a place those down-and-out on their luck might get weekly rates. Run by immigrants, as many of these properties in rural areas are, it suffers from...

We were travelling home after vacation so were only spending a night. The room was clean enough but the lighting left alot to be desired. They used very low wattage so the room seemed very dark. It was a little drab and maybe that is the reason for the low wattage lighting. There was no microwave/fridge but they did have...

Walk in the lobby and it stinks. Go to the room and it was the dirtiest hotel I have every seen. The ceiling was covered in dust, no batteries in the smoke detectors, the carpet didn't look like it had been vaccum, the room and hallway smelled, but not of cigarette smoke, vents and most things covered in dust or...
