INCREDIBLY rude, dishonest and disrespectful desk clerk! Poor service overall. Hole in the Wall!! I'd rather sleep in my car as compared to paying money to stay in this dump & be mistreated. There are other competitively priced hotels nearby. Bypass this one

I drove up to the hotel at night and could not really tell what condition it was in. I knew it was cheap and I didn't expect much. But it went way beyond being just old and cheap. In the morning light I saw that the outside of the hotel looks like a building about to be torn down. Inside... More

The lobby appearance is deceiving, this place is a dump! They will not refund your money after you check your room. Mold in the bathroom, filthy sheets, dirt and dust on every surface. Gas station bathrooms are cleaner and probably safer to use. The use of an ancient credit card embossing machine should have been my first clue. Their website... More

This motel was in the No. Carolina coupon book. It said it was approved by AARP. We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay. What we got was CHEAP, CHEAP!! The place is very rundown and in need of a lot of maintainance!! Our room was "non-smoking", but it probably had been smoked in for thirty years!! I was... More

While traveling, it was late and we were tired and wanted to stop for the night. Unfortunately, there was a NASCAR race that weekend and most of the hotels were booked.
