My family and I visited the Golden Sand Motel in mid June. This place was horrible. The room they put us in had no telephone service and roaches. We complained and they offered to spray for us, which they didnt complete until the next morning. On the 2nd day there, I left to go to the grocery, only to come...

The rooms are filthy; the commode broke away from the wall, flooded the room, and they kept our $100 deposit for the repair! Roach infested - bugs crawling on our babies.

When we booked the rooms we were told that these were smoking rooms. Well, when we got upstairs it was a different story....

SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS. Rooms and hotel nasty. The room we stayed in was the size of a bathroom. The manager was rude and nasty. She tried to tell the guests what they could wear and I told her when she buys my clothes she can tell me what to and how to wear them. She is very discriminating. They won't...

Where do I start? We booked 3 rooms with this hotel because all others were booked up when we called to make reservations. And they accepted pets.I have a small dog that travels with me. I even apologize to her for putting her in such conditions. This place is a dump. The outside was filthy and there is hardly any...

I stayed there last Summer. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but it was clean, the staff was friendly (except the night clerk who looked down on me for having tattoos), and while there were some wear and tear things wrong with the room, like missing tiles, it was very nice for the rate (50 a night during july the fourth...
