Terrible

1.90/5.0
The TV worked nice..
The bed had stains on it, the bed was very uncomfortable and looked as if it was 30 years old. There was on opened pack of bar soap in the bathroom, there was no mini refrigerator and when we asked for one they said they were out and couldn't afford more. My wife is still breastfeeding and needing to pump and needed to keep the milk cold. Will never stay there again.

Don't stay here!

I did sleep well.

3.35/5.0
I did sleep well. The employee who checked me in was friendly.
The towels were ruff feeling against my face. The sink was slow draining. I asked why police officers were walking through the Motel.

1.65/5.0
Very colorful
The whole hall smelled of weed smoke. And from 10pm til 2 am people were outside in hall talking and laughing called up front to ask for someone to come and ask them to quiet down as I have a child no such luck. I had booked a double queen and got a single queen and asked about my room they said sorry it's the only one we have.
