After paying upon checking in I noticed the sign saying no refunds! First warning! While parking I see a guy on the second floor knocking on a door carrying a gun kinda hidden behind his back! Already had 3 people in the room. That's scary!!!! Rooms are extremely old and outdated, drop ceiling with the tiles falling down. Smoke detector...

I wish I could rate this below a 1. It was absolutely horrific. We laid down on the bed (fully clothes due to the disgusting sheets) and the headboard literally came SMASHING down. The towels were all stained. The toilet was stained brown, and then I had dropped my cell phone on the floor, so I had to reach under...

Most disgusting place I've ever been. The toilet wouldn't flush and the room was so dirty. We couldn't sleep and I sure as heck didn't take my shoes off or set foot in the shower. No refunds either!!!! I walked in and wanted to leave immediately.

this was an older motel but my stay was comfortable, was checked in by a friendly Indian couple, I had a room with a king size bed with clean sheets, micro & fridge, and the bathroom was decent except the tube had old stains from friction tape that was removed, I did not have problems with bugs what so ever....

We have a family reunion near Burnsville every year, and most of the family now brings tents rather than stay at this motel. Last and final stay: cobwebs on the lampshades, partially eaten food in the nightstand drawer, and bedbug infestation in the room. I can deal with the first two, but my wife shrieked and fled when we found...

When I pulled down the sheets in a room at Motel 79, in addition to holes in the sheets, they were full of semen stains. Beneath the bed were roach hotels and under the toilet seat were pee deposits from a former occupant.
