“Worst Place on Earth”
Reviewed 17 July 2009

Too bad i can't post the huge roaches that woke me up. My daughter of 4YOA was sacred off her mind. We checked out and the excuse was that since it summer roaches come in and out. Never will I ever stay at any Knights Inn Hotel again. The room smelled like someone had just smoked a dubbie and the beds OMG were they dirty as hell. Stay away from this place. You're better off sleeping in your vehicle as I did after I took the other two nights as a loss. My points from my timeshare were wasted and my vacation ruined by this stay..............STAY AWAY STAY AWAY STAY AWAY

Reviewed 26 January 2009

I was very disappointed with my stay as I have stayed in Knights Inn's in other states, and they all exceeded my expecitations.

I don't know who made reviews on other websites for this motel, but my guess is they never stayed there. The room was clean but looked like something left over from the 1970's.
I could hear people walking in room above me. I could hear the female in room next to me through a paper thin connecting wood door.

The Breakfast was coffee and honey buns, which they stop serving at 09:30. The interstate is just across the street, no grass or anything separating the parking lot, frontage road and Interstate 35.

The parking lot is about 50 feet past Interstate ramp, so you must travel frontage road about two miles through red lights to get onto the Interstate

The front desk had problems understanding English.

Save your money, there are several modern motels/hotels within a mile of this location for the same daily room rate.

Stayed January 2009, travelled on business
