I had staff banging on my door an hour before my checkout time, telling me I had to leave now, even though I had been promised a one hour later checkout. When I explained this to the pompous, arrogant, aggressive, warden-like tyrant of a man, he just became more agitated and walked off mumbling in some foreign language, clearly displeased....

Ok, if you want luxurious, this is not the place for you. However if you want simple and cheap place for a quick overnight, this is it. The room was worn, but appeared clean. I checked the bed linens and they looked ok to the naked eye. You could see the room and bathroom had definite age on them. There...

Wish we had read the Trip Advisor reviews before we spent 3 nights there. The first room we were in was also occupied by a roach in the night stand. Also house-keeping did not make up the room after 1 day's stay, well, we chalked this up to an oversight. Day 2 another roach on the sink, we requested a...

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Do not stay here if you value your well being! This is the absolute shadiest hotel you can imagine. If you cannot afford ten dollars more for any hotel but here. Just stop at a rest stop and sleep for a few hours because its more than you will get...

I stayed here for 10 nights in order to save money. The room seemed fairly clean, except for the walls, which were smeared with dirt and who knows what else. The complimentary wireless internet was down for all but one of the nights I was there. Except for the weekends, the breakfasts consisted of eggs and toast only - no...

I wouldn't bring my wife here, but when traveling alone this flea bag is worth the less than $40 bucks per night being charged. Good points: a good breakfast consisting of a made for you egg and pancake, toast, coffee, fruit, and juice. Located on Route One a quarter of a mile from an Interstate 95 connection. Close to the...

This was the WORST hotel I have ever been to.... The staff seemed to be friendly but as I drove to my room It seemed more of an apartment complex with people sitting in chairs in front of there rooms having a beer!! That wasnt the worst of it... The smell of the room hit you as soon as you...

The rooms were clean, cheap and dog friendly. That is the best you could say about it. The staff were friendly to the adults but not very friendly to our teenagers. The staff was also not very helpful. First, I had called when we booked to request rooms side by side - when we arrived they were not, even though...

This motel seems more like a rooming house. There seemed to be lots of permanent guests, not of the highest quality. They didn't honor my confirmed reservation for a smoking room. The neighborhood was somewhat creepy. I left without staying, as the whole place made me uncomfortable (and I'm not at all a scaredy cat)

This hotel was the worst hotel ever! Pulled in late from a long distance drive, forced to stay because of mon refund policy, woke several times to "live ins" fighting, screaming and threatning each other.final arguments at 4am, we packed up and were out by 4:30am! Stay away from this hotel, we will NEVER stay at any choice hotels again...
