the worst motel I have ever stayed at in my life. it was so filthy. my room had another door in in which led to god knows where, it sucked officially. the front desk person didn't even show up until we waited outside for 15 minutes. my husband and I only stayed here because we needed to kill a few hours before checking in to the la quinta. I didn't even bother laying on the bed. there were flies and plenty of insects with in the bathroom just lounging on the toilet. I sat in a chair with my purse close to me hoping not to pick up any insects. don't go here. I let someone pick this place out for me. I would never make that mistake again. most of the ppl within the motel rooms live in those motel rooms:(

Room Tip: by far the worst

i have been stayin at this motel to see my bf, spend time w friends, or just get away from everything for years now...i will admit that the rooms look less than clean but that is the old paint n carpeting....what do u really expect for a king size room for 40 bux? the best thing about this place is its family style rooms n work crew rooms....the work crew rooms are large n tend to have anywhere from 3 to 5 double beds in them....the family rooms are perfect for couples travelin w children or just a group of friends that want to share a room n still have privacy, since they have 2 double beds, a tv, fridge n microwave in one room then u walk thru another door to a private room w a king size bed and another tv, fridge n microwave plus a shared bathroom w nice size tub....not to mention if u get the chance to talk w the man (B.R.) who owns the place, u will find that he is very friendly and always more than willing to help w any issues possible....plus they have the best weekly rates in the entire richmond area (believe me cuz i have put in the man hours callin all over myself) overall this place is not the marriot however its the best value ur gonna find and in walkin distance of sooo much local shoppin n dining....and if u forgot anything at home there is a walmart in walking distance....check it out

I had spotted this place on a previous road trip, and was looking for an excuse to check it out. I spent the weekend around Richmond, and stayed here the first night.

This is an early '50s motel, which was once pretty nice. The owners have kept the old neon sign working, which was a nice bonus. Despite the fact that there were maybe 5 other cars, all the non-smoking rooms were gone. I got a king room for $42, which was a great deal.

Unfortunately, the smoking room was pretty grimy. The walls were dirty, and there were a lot of sloppy patches in the plaster. The carpet was really filthy, I think mostly with cigarette fumes. It was rather brown. The bathroom was a great vintage green tile, and was nice and clean. One odd thing was that my TV stayed 'on' after I turned it off. Once I turned the lights off, there was a distinct glow from it, so I had to get behind the dresser and unplug it.
