I know it's a cheap hotel, but it was the filthiest that have i have ever seen. There was blood on the wall, floor was gross, cigarette burns on everything, and syringes in the ceiling.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Shower curtain was hanging by one screw and dangling so I couldn’t close the curtain. Refrigerator had moldy food and old milk in it that had to of been there for weeks. Pool had recently cracked and leaked throughout the first floor and smelled from the carpets being drenched. There was still clothes and items under the bed from people prior to our visit. Top sheet on the bed had a hole from smoking and stains on it. It was disgusting the only thing besides Kelly who worked the front desk and was friendly and tried to accommodate as much as possible was the halfway decent pub inside the hotel. Food was mediocre but at least it was cleaner then the rest of the hotel.
