“One of America's original hotel rooms...too bad”
Reviewed 30 July 2011

This goes down as the worst place we have ever stayed. We decided to go with it because of the location and price for the Augusta Master's Tournament. Egads!! We prepaid and had no choice but to stay here or the car for five nights. We purchased shower shoes so we'd never have to put feet on carpet, and we lived out of suitcases entire time. I went out and purchased new pillows (hotel's were yellow/brown/stained) and cases, bought a chair to sit in so I wouldn't have to get close to the bedspread, and bought a giant size container of disinfectant wipes. I scrubbed down every surface in the room, especially headboard which had some disgusting globs on it. Nicotine and who knows what else on every surface. Bathroom door did not open all the way, so you had to sit on sink to close door. An overweight person could not use the bathroom, or fit in the shower stall. Mirror was haning at half mast. I sprayed down everything in the bathroom, floor included..just filthy. I put sign out that refused maid service for entire stay. It was a miracle the bed had no bedbugs. The size of the room was one double bed (we rolled to center of bed), just enough room to walk beside bed, and one double dresser with tv..no other room. My purchased chair blocked the way into bathroom. Camping would have been cleaner I think. I complained to corporation, but NEVER got response. We also think this hotel was used off-season as a 'by the hour' establishment.

My husband is not hard at all to please, so when he calls a place a dump-you should all listen. Cock roaches in the room, hard beds and this place needs a major overhaul. The location is great and is close to everything. I'd say pay a little more each night to get a much cleaner place which is cock roach free.

I stayed here for a week the staff was courtous and the room was clean. Granted this is not the Ritz but it's a nice, quiet place to stay for the price. I should also mention it's close to the mall and all the places to eat. Just thought I should put in my two cents since all the reviews on here are negative

The absolute WORST motel experience you could ever have... Don't Do It! The rooms are dirty, the free breakfast was horrible. Nothing they promised did they make good on. Toilets didn't flush, TV didn't work, couldn't adjust temperature on shower. Linens were dirty and I had an itch and rash for almost a week after staying. Charged for safe that wasn't in room. Website listed amenities that weren't present. NO microwave, NO refrigerator, NO coffeemaker, NO iron / ironing board, phone didn't work, staff was rude. This was the worst motel experience I have had in my 42 years of business travel!

This was a bargain choice because we couldn't priceline better chains at an acceptable rate. Don't do it.
