Rude staff. Not clean. Ice machine and vendor machines not working. We had to buy ice from a service station .Felt unsafe. There was a burned out car in the parking lot and judging from the amount of spider webs and trash under it, it had been there a long time. A nice place to stay IT AINT!!!

We had quite a tussle with scarcely English-speaking management. The linen and coverlet were dirty and stained. For the price we paid, you'd think there would be coffee in the room, perhaps a microwave, a refrigerator that worked, working WiFi - NO, none of it. We stayed in the back and some rather odd happenings were going on after dark...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for four days. As a rule I use refrigerator, but thought it would be nice to stay at a place that we actually had all to ourselves. We thought it would be worth the extra money. It wasn't. When I made my reservations about six weeks ago, I told the woman I spoke with...

There's lots of things to see around motel. Rooms are rather small and had a weird smell. Restroom was real small, toilet seat is right next to bathtub. The room seemed a little dirty. I guess you get what you pay for. Won't be returning, would not recommend if you're used to clean rooms and no funny smells.
