4/10 Fair

Don't recommend, hotel felt unsafe and rundown
We are not fancy people by any means but were frankly appalled by the rundown area this hotel is located in and the lack of care seen at this property. Bedding seemed clean and beds were comfortable. However, room was in poor repair with previous water damage that caused large bubbles under the paint on the ceiling and walls. Carpet worn and stained/dirty. Dust and hair in the corners of the room and bathroom. Toilet sitting improperly and not secured to the floor. Towel bars barely hanging onto the wall. Towels were skimpy and threadbare with only 2 provided for a room that sleeps 4. Fridge smelled like sour milk. A homeless man was sleeping in the corridor when we were checking out/carrying our belongings out at 10 the next morning. We were glad of having Lysol wipes with us to clean the room a bit before we settled in. It was 90+ degrees outdoors during our stay and the air conditioner kept turning off so that we had to get up throughout the night to turn it back on. We didn't use the outdoor pool but it seemed in decent condition.

2/10 Poor

Unclean and unsafe!
Room was very run down and not clean. Bathroom was particularly gross with dirt, hair and dried urine on the base of the toilet and bathroom floor. Walls and fixtures were grimy and carpet needed replacing. Toilet seat was lose and when trying to nudge it back in place with my knee, the whole toilet moved! Metal strip to cover the crack between the carpet and tile floor was broken off and sharp. The mattresses were old and sunken in. Even when just sitting on the edge of the bed, the box springs made loud noises. Bed skirts on both beds were stained and the sheets felt gritty, like there was sand on the beds after being made! Had to ask for another set of towels as we had 3 people and were only given 2. They brought one more bath towel, but no wash cloth or hand towel. Soon as I checked in, I asked for bathroom to be cleaned and was told they would call housekeeping to come. Hour and a half later I called again because they hadn’t shown up and was told the woman had gone home for the day. Asked what I should I do then? Was told to call back in another 1 1/2 hours to talk to manager. Waited two hours and called. Manager still wasn’t there. Was told to wait 5 mins and they will contact them for me. Never heard back anything. Had to clean the bathroom myself. Also, in the middle of the night the local police were on their loud speaker in the parking lot asking someone to come out of their room with their hands up unarmed!! What in the world!? Overall, my worst motel stay ever!!!
