2/10 Poor

I gave this place the benefit of the doubt because so many reviews said it wasn't as bad as people made it out to be. It was worse. The floors in the room didn't look like they were properly swept and one look in a drawer and you'll find dirt and dead bugs. The worst part was that there was a huge cockroach hanging around outside the rooms probably just waiting to run inside. We checked out within an hour of checking in. For $86 a night I stayed at a cleaner hotel with much better service. It's definitely not worth the cheaper price. Just stay in a hotel.

Horrible place
This place is a disaster. Tried checking in at 2 pm was told check in wasn’t until 3. The room was dirty. We said fine got the key and said we would be back after our show. Got back went to the room after the show. Knowone was in the office. Went to the room it was horrible. Took pictures. Put the key on the counter in the room and left. Did not stay there. Drove 5 hours home. Wouldn’t stay there if my lift depended on it.

2/10 Poor

No one to check me in waited 20 mins then went to find someone and eventually got into my room. Sadly when I went to bed the sheets were stained from previous use, the wash didn’t clean the stains that looked urine stains! I can’t recommend to anyone and I’d really a refund of some kind as it was very over priced

2/10 Poor

extremely dirty room, very strong cigarette smell inside the room, bathroom with very dirty walls, used towels, dirt all over the room, there is no room service. I stayed for two days and they didn't fix my room, the TV was stained with candy, the coffee maker didn't work, the mirrors were totally dusty and the worst of all was the very strong smell of cigarettes inside the room. I am an extremely allergic person to cigarettes and I got really sick after I left this motel. I do not advise anyone to stay at this place.

Great quality for the price. Close enough to downtown that it’s walkable.

6/10 Good

Good cheap stay. However, we felt the need to buy airfrsheners because the room smelt like cigarette smoke. As well as sheets, the ones on the beds were stained. Over all it could have been cleaner but you get what you pay for. Much safer area now that the new casino is in!
