Positives: No breakfast, no coffee no hot water- nothing! Hair in bath tub, bathroom door would not shut, bed cover old, worn and not clean. No Kleenex, no shampoo, no hair dryer. I won’t stay there ever again.

Charles family with young children May 2, 2022
Positives: The room was clean
Negatives: First off I have stayed in many motels in the country and this was a big let down. The screw for the shower nossle was loose, had to tighten it up for water to adjust. Outside of building has garbage everywhere you looked. Getting back to our room after 1:30am, we opened the door and the entire room smelled of WEED! so we had to run the fan blower for the night to clear out the smell. Told the person at the front desk and didn't seem like he care. Plus they will charge a additional $50.00 during check in a damage fee. And said should get it back in 3-5 days Cars in the parking lot were doubled parked in some places. This is not a place to take little kids, some shady people walking around.
Not a good experience at...
Misty young couple May 2, 2022
Positives: The only thing that I liked was that the concert that we went to was less than 2 miles from the motel
Negatives: The staff did not speak very good English, they had no idea what kind of restaurants were around, what activities there were to do, etc. The pool was nasty. It needed to be cleaned. There were no menus in the room or even a alarm Clark.
Do not stay at this...
