The worst Hotel
We didn’t stay in this hotel because the hotel hosted some very shady people and we felt very unsafe. The non-smoking room smelled of cigarette smoke and since my wife has cancer we could stay. But they charged us for not staying there.

The comforters on the beds were somewhat dirty along with the tub. Paint falling off the ceiling, door was dirty (could have been wiped down) and no smoke detector.

2/10 Poor

This was the most disgusting place I’ve ever been. The place was run down and our room had been made but NOT cleaned. There was hair on the sheets and pillowcases, fresh blood stains on the bed cover and the room had been smoked in. The door was beaten up as if someone tried breaking in. I was required to pay a $100 deposit in addition to the cost of the room. The deposit was to cover any damage we made to the room during our stay and if we smoked in the room. Obviously we canceled the room and the deposit was refunded. Also upon our arrival the computer was down and we were asked to come back later. The desk staff was nice but highly incompetent to be running a motel.
