This might be becoming kind of boring for people but here is another case of a member of the AAHA buying up another motel, not putting any money in it's upkeep, losing one motel chain franchise and buying into another. This used to be an EconoLodge. When the motel was an EconoLodge, there used to be a restaurant and a...

This has to be the worst place I have stayed in ever. Although we had a pool view, it was filled with dirt and grass. Twice we had to get the manager to let us in the room as our key would not work. the toilet paper holder fell off the wall and the sink was stopped up and black...

I arrived in the daytime and the first thing I noticed was two dead birds hanging out of the roofing for the walkway. Sat on one of my double beds and it plopped right of the frame.

The first room they tried to put us in was disgusting! The bath tub had several different levels of rings that were dried up mud (or black mold) and the linens were gross.
