I decided to try this motel just for a single night's stay, and their main sign along the highway advertised 33.99 for a room.

After waiting a long time for their incredibly slow front-desk help to take care of people, I was told that this was the "weekday" rate, and that the actual price was 47.00 per night. The sign said absolutely nothing about "weekday" rate.

I was marginal to begin with on this place- it is tucked out of the way from the highway, and takes a fair amount of driving through some questionable neighborhoods just to get to it, and there is -nothing- convenient in the area. When I heard the price, I walked; as a matter of principle I do NOT stay at motels that try this sleazy bait-and-switch tactic. Either they honor their advertised price or they do not. If they are willing to lie to me about that, what else might they be willing to do?

Easily the most unpleasant hotel experience i've ever encountered. Rooms were nasty, shower water would go freezing cold for no reason. Staff barely spoke English.
After checking in i requested and was granted a late checkout for the next day. Normal check out is 11am, i was granted a 1pm checkout. Starting at 10:30am staff began knocking at the door. I explained to the staff that i had a late checkout only to receive a blank, "I don't know what you're saying" stare. Then 20 mins later another knock at the door. This went on until 12:15 when the green card carrying manager knocked and told me that i had 5 mins to get out. He had no interest in asking the woman who checked me in if i had a late checkout. I also told him to check his security tape to hear the conversation. He replied "there is no tape" which is crap because i could see the video screens at the front desk of what was being captured.

rude man at front desk that hardly spoke english...the cleaning staff took a dump in our bathroom and didn't flush the toilet and to add insult to injury on top of that there was a pair of dookie filled underwear in the bed and we found roaches running all through the room and a rotten half eaten apple in the night stand.....didn't pay a dime and jetted to the nearest hojo!

Room Tip: speed up when you see this place so you can hurry up and pass this place as fast as you can!!!!
