This place was terrible to look at. When we arrived the outside looked very runned down. The rooms were disgusting to look at, could not even imagine sleeping in them. The rooms smelled terrible. Stay away as far as possible from this place. We asked for our money back and left to find another motel. See the Colony motel comment.

I have seen better furniture at the dump. The swimming pool was small, and dirty. I cannot emphasize enough what a...

Worst experience ever. Rooms were filthy, door was broken, microwave oven cracked and dirty, bed sheets and towels were stained, furniture old and dented, shower curtain moldy, tub dirty, no maid service, beds were uncomfortable and stained, rugs were pieced together and smelled, and price was higher on check in than quoted over the phone. Sleezy and Dumpy!
