  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort


Hotel of horrors!! Dirty doesn't even begin to describe the rooms. Holes in doors, mold in the bathrooms, dirty bedding, towels, pillows etc. Bugs!!! DEAD Bugs and live BUGS everywhere! BLOOD ON BEDDING!!!The hotel had meth addicts and prostitutes in and out consistently. When staff was notified of dirty bedding, they were very rude and handed me yet another dirty blanket. I would never ever stay there again! This hotel made Rob Zombie horror movies hotels look fabulous!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

It was awful the room was for my daughter and her family and I was ashamed to have them stay there but had no choice they need to overhaul the place don't think they have done anything to it since I was a kid it needs a lot of work there was one staff member that was very helpful gave her a dirty room when we checked them in and it was bad for me to say anything about it I don't ever give bad reviews

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

I didn't like all the long term renters that were living in the motel. It seems to have grown and I get people have to live but it's just unusual. One of the underaged people asked us for a beer. Thankfully one of their friends spoke up and said she wasn't of age. It was just unusual. The new owners seem really nice. We hope they keep the property up. There were no fisherman with boats in the parking lot, which was really unusual. There were new signs up saying quiet hours start at 10pm too. They didn't bother us when we were playing some low music outside between 10-12pm. I liked that I was able to get a fishing license right in the hotel office, that saved me a trip.
