I have stayed at this motel for one night only on my way down south for at least five years. It is nothing great. It is old and not well-maintained. I have found though that it is OK for one night coming in at 9pm and leaving out at 6am. The price is right and it is quiet. There are...

Stains on the sheets that went from the comforter through to mattress. Had this not been a last minute decision in the middle of the night we would have stayed elsewhere. By far the worst experience I ever had at a hotel/motel/whatever the heck this place was. We are lucky to have got out alive.

If you're not aware of the area, you don't want to be at that location after dark. We arrived at 2am, due to delayed flight. Several people lurking around on property, hiding in bushes, watching our every move. No security, very poor lighting. As we entered our room, we immediately notice sub par carpet, torn sofa, greyish sheets (originally white)...

Did not make it to the room. The outside & the lobby appearance were enough to send me running. He couldn't find our reservations anyway. Find another hotel. Check out the Holiday Inn Express. It was wonderful.
