You have been warned. A lot of shady characters hanging around. Rooms were disgusting. So bad, we abandoned our third party non-refundable reservation. Always use a third party that shows TripAdvisor ratings.

This motel was essentially disgusting. We had come in from out of town to attend my husband's company holiday party at a nearby restaurant, with the intention of spending the night instead of driving 2.5 hours home in the dark after the party. When we arrived at the motel, my husband checked in without incident. However, on the walk to...
