Don't do it...not even for the great rate of $45 in those coupon books. Nope! Not worth it! Filthy! Bugs everywhere in the room! Pubes on the shower walls. Gritty, dirty tile floors. Toothbrush spray on the mirror. Gum wrapper and burrs on the bed. The drawers had bread ties, onion skins and popcorn in them like someone had been...

I'll start by saying the desk clerk was holding her 2-week old baby, and I have a feeling that she's responsible for a lot of the caretaking that happens there. The common areas hadn't been attended to (to put it mildly) for some time. However, the room was clean although without "kleenex," shampoo, etc., and the towels were plentful. The...

The room-door lock was loose; we felt unsafe. The toilet tank had lost water for flushing; we had to pour water using the trash bin. They had not equipped our room with towels; we had to ask them for the stuff after the check-in. I have to recommend anybody to stay away from booking a room of this motel.

Booked thru TripAdvisor but when we arrived, new owner had cancelled our reservation (and rented our room) because we had pets. Website said they accepted pets when we booked. Did not find out about this until we arrived. Guess it was a blessing in disguise since lobby had odor and not clean. Personnel was on their way out.

We've stayed here before and it was fine but this time was different. The lobby was filthy. There were dead flies everywhere and the milk was left out in the counter from breakfast at 5pm. The room was clean but also had flies in it. The breakfast next morning looked like day old pastries.

Basically, its a cheap hotel room and I got what I paid for. The room was inexpensive but the mattress was horrible - I big depression on the edge and lumped up in the middle - basically worn out. In addition, the room was not well maintained.
