    Although the gentleman provided great customer service at the desk. The room I was given was horrible. As soon as I walked in i was hit in the face with hot air like one would get from opening an oven door. I looked around and everything was dirty, unclean, as if this room was used and not cleaned before the next guest (me) arrived. The bed was the worst part. It wasn’t made. The blankets had stains on them and the sheets were no where near the white color they were supposed to be. I was disgusted, but had no where else to go. I went to the local Walmart and picked up new sheets, a blanket, and new pillows. Also clorox wipes and Lysol. Went back to disinfect and clean too to bottom Bc apparently housekeeping at his establishment do not know the meaning of their job title. I tried to make myself comfortable in this hot nasty room. I sat by the ac unit for three hours before getting into bed, trying to boast my courage but also Bc it was too hot beyond exhaustion to sit anywhere else. The worst part was trying to sleep, it was sooo hot and uncomfortable and despite getting new sheets I could not shake the feeling of bugs crawling on me all over. So unreasonably itchy I finally gave up and left in the middle of the night around 2:30 am. I do not recommend staying here, it was the experience I had ever had.

    There was nothing that I liked about this room.

    Carpeting was dirty around edges.

    There was no breakfast, just coffee. Over all, I think the room was OK for the price. The bathroom was very clean and had been updated. Plenty of towels and bathroom amenities (soap,shampoo, but no lotion). Bed was very comfortable with extra pillows.

    Pleasant Stay

    It is close to a somewhat busy road & noise of train, but didn't feel it was TOO inconvenient. I wouldn't opt for another hotel for it.

    I am satisfied with my hotel experience. The room was clean and had a nice, comfortable bed. I have been travelling to other cities and this is by far the cleanest room I have experienced so far. It is located close to several other Motels, so if you are looking for a weekly and expensive rate that is an option.

    Sat down on the desk chair and a leg broke off (it apparently was cracked). I caught myself before I fell. There was a cigarette in the ash tray. There was a hole in the wall between two rooms. I covered the hole with a piece of chewed gum. Hookers propositioned me once. Maid service never appeared. Closet had no hangers.

    shower worked well. Hookers only propositioned me once. Maid service did not bother me.

    Maybe it was only the case in our room, but it smells like piss very extremly in the sleeping room. Not in the bathroom and not in front of the door and it did also not come from the climatic system. To be honest, there was a big wet place next to the bet in the sleeping room and it really seems like somebody pissed on the carpet. Sorry to say that but its the truth. It was an awful strong smell.

    Everything else was a horrible and very unsafe! At 2 am the police department bang on the door scaring my whole family including my 8 and 9 year old. They made my husband step out of the room and handcuffed him. We asked what was going on and they didn't answer. The officers had the wrong room, It was apparent that their was some disturbance next door. ( such a scary experience)
