The mattress was stained, the bedsheets were dirty, and I found Q-tips at the back of the bed. The lamp was broken. The toilet seat was disgusting, there was rust under the toilet, and the water pressure in the shower was terrible. The cold water was warm. There was a big dent in one of the beds. Rude personnel. The pool water was gross and we were told to swim at our own risk. Breakfast was inedible, and there was no inspection information in the elevator. Don't stay here.2019-08-06"

I wasn't a happy guest.2021-07-12"

Don't stay here.2016-04-14"
"OK rates. The motel was run-down, and the walls were stained. At least the bed was comfortable. Breakfast wasn't good. Just a place to sleep.2016-04-01"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
