Yikes is a pleasent way of saying that this was the worst hotel/motel that I have ever encountered. Our room was filthy, bugs galore, no towels, mold on the ceiling and holes in the sheets. We had been driving for ten hour and it was very late or we would not have even stayed. Nevertheless, we stayed four hours, caught...

The place has roachs every where, the cleaning staff does notting but pick up the garbage and take the dirty towels. Never do they leave clean towels.

Like other reviews i've seen here, the lobby was smoky, stinky and the check in line was long and slow. A security guard was posted by the counter but that didn't make us feel secure. He was obviously there to protect the...

I checked in the hotel for three days. However, I seldom stay at the hotel for I was out downtown doing business and that was what I was doing in Mobile. There were no traces of cleaning during the first day of stay. I called the housekeeping and they said there was a mistake in housekeeping and they would clean...
