6/10 Good

Broken things like no ice, no plug for the bath tub, not enough electric outlets. The sink was dirty, the floor needed swept. The bedding was clean. The electric plugs kept falling out of the sockets. The gentleman who checked us in and out was very friendly once he verified who we were. The price was definitely right, it was quiet. We really liked our room's location but it was difficult for my handicapped friend to walk up the stairs (my fault for not requesting handicap-accessible room). The water temperature was definitely affected by others turning on/off their water which made showering an adventure. I would stay there again.

You get what you pay for...
The room accommodated our needs. Plenty of hot water, A/c-Heat worked great and the fridge worked great. The refrigerator, microwave and A/C were unplugged so we had to wait for the fridge to cool. I was not aware the room was for smoker's and the odor was very pungent. Housekeeping was attentive and eager to please. While searching for my grandson's lost marker lid we found a few treasures left from prior visitors including a bag of D&D dice behind the bed, a wrapped oatmeal creme pie behind the other bed and an empty tuna fish can under the tv stand! Not complaining just suggesting that housekeeping steps it up a notch when prepping for the next visitor. As long as your tetanus shots are up to date, you're not sensitive to cigarette smoke, you enjoy a very firm mattress, and you have good knees for climbing the stairs you'll be fine! Enjoy your stay at Gardos Motel!

Old School American Value
It's an older place but it was very affordable. Our water is out at home so we came to shower, sleep in a clean bed and we didn't want to spend alot. The room is clean, and the best part is NO BUGS. We will probably be back next week (: The office staff (probably the owners) was very accommodating and there wasnt alot of noise. Thanks yall for letting me change my room type even though it was my mistake at booking.

2/10 Poor

I booked a 4 night stay for work in town there. First night I slept fully clothed. Woke up the next morning fine no issues other than the beds being uncomfortable. The second night slept with my shirt off woke with bug bites all over my lower back. Didn’t have time to look for a new place due to work. The third night slept with a shirt on. Woke the next day with those same bites on my left arm which swelled up. Checked out a night early and slept in my car on my last night. Bc I refused to stay here another night. They never asked how the stay was they don’t give refunds either. So if you are looking to stay here probably book one night at a time. As for me I won’t step foot on that property again. Thank you.
