Cheapest price room available

The TV was ok and working. Some lights were not working and in the bathroom the holder for the toilette paper was damaged. The bed and room was clean and it was quite during the night. It‘s ok if you just need a room to sleep and if you don‘t expect anything.


OMG NO! Dont do it!!!

This was a scary scary place. When we checked in, an hour past check in time, we were told they did'nt have a room with two beds (that we had reserved) available for us except for one that had no key. BUT they would be happy to lock and unlock the door for us at any time of day or night. I told them I was not comfortable with that, and that we would wait for a room to be cleaned for us. No sooner did I walk to the car then they were following me out telling me now a room was miraculously cleaned and available. Literally three minutes had gone by. On the dirty walk to the room we observed garbage, a shopping carriage from a grocery store that the maid was using to push room to room with the cleaning supplies in it, a broken dilapidated bicycle in the stairway and a crumbling yet somehow rusty stone staircase leading up to our room. The room next door to us had the door wide open and it looked like The Who had stayed there the previous night. All the furniture was broken and swallowed in garbage that was all pushed away from the walls into a pile in the middle of the room. We were afraid to open the door to our room, but when we did it was a crusty smelly room minus the garbage. My cousins pillow had what looked like the equivalent of a "glory hole" in it. When we were picked up by our Uber driver he let us know that this motel was a "full service place" and we should be prepared for hookers and drug dealers to be knocking on our door upon our return. Needless to say we were freaked out about returning all night and should have just switched hotels. When we returned we slept in our clothes for fear of contamination and pressure washed ourselves on our return home. THE PRICE IS NOT WORTH IT.


Cheapest Place to Stay. So you can't complain....too much.

This was the cheapest rate for any lodging in my area for a six-night stay. With that comes certain low expectations that may or may not be lived up to. Let’s go into detail shall we? On check in day, the key machine was not working, so the manager had to let me in personally. Presumably for such a long stay I was given the furthest room from the main office on the bottom floor, adjacent to a stairwell to the top. He introduced me to the efficient air conditioning unit and advised that leaving it on low cool would produce massive cool shortly. He would be very correct. The room itself was a non smoking King/Queen, and it came standard with a refrigerator that was not already on. It had no freezer door and had a hair in it, and the dial for the fridge temp was there, but broken. The microwave on tape also worked fine and seemed attached to the fridge. An office desk was next to it with a lamp that did not work. Because on that side of the room there were only 4 outlets. One for the fridge, microwave, tv, and the cable box, leaving the light with no source of electricity. The TV was nice, and had nice HD movie channels. There were 3 chairs in the room. The office chair was broken and continually sunk as the lever was not working. The other two were regular chairs. The sink is out in the open, and has a strong faucet. For those interested, you cannot use the toilet and leave the door open, as the paper roll is behind the door in a cramped area. The shower had a strong head. The towels given were so thin, it would take 3 of them to dry a single person. Turndown service was not given any of the days I stayed, nor did I ask for it. The bed was alright. Truly nothing to write home about. The room was inspection clean, in that a quick visual inspection would say it is clean, but I am the type to go a bit further and look at everything. That being said, I found many spaces for improvement. The bed itself did not fit the frame, and stuck out like a literal sore thumb, and could hurt someone who was not aware of it. The first “leg” of the frame had a courtesy facecloth tied to it to prevent injury. I could hear the heavy foot impressions of the neighbors upstairs, but nothing that would wake me up in the middle of the night. The parking lot was relatively well lit and seemed generally safe at night. The wifi network was not good. It kept cutting in and out, definitely unreliable. Leaving the parking lot is dangerous as the giant sign for the Inn blocks the view, but it becomes manageable. I really did not have a problem here, you get what you pay for. I needed a cheap place to stay for a long time and this fit the bill. Things could definitely been better, but my expectations were met for what I paid.


Not bad economy wise.

We booked this about a month in advance after checking all the options in the area most was booked up for 4th of July weekend. We got here a little early because checking was supposed to be at 3 p.m. . So not knowing how traffic was we got here around before 11 a.m. . The manager said that he was booked he had a No Vacancy sign in the hotel and he said that he had our reservations that we could come back earlier he would have the maids clean our room first. He called me up in about two and a half to three hours and said that our room was ready nice guy I found the outside in the grounds a bit in need of repair of though it wasn't dirty it look just old and I'm sure if that's what the problem was. When we got into the room we had to two queens. I found the room very clean a bit small and not having a couple minute he's like extra plug sockets near the sink or a place to put the luggage on when you got in. The interior was very clean like he's doing some remodeling the bathroom was like brand new other we should have gotten a handicap access but it was still good. I would recommend this place for a short stay we stayed a week but if he keeps doing what he's doing it will be quite nice for a rebuilt in a remodel I would stay here again definitely. I found it much much better than the Econo Lodge we stayed in Scranton Pennsylvania which was just a total dump the rooms weren't too bad but it was too much scary stuff there it was kind of like old and not painted not very good.


Never again

the bathroom ceiling paint was peeling and where the bathroom ceiling and wall meet there was black mold. if that wasn't enough the toilet was filthy like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. when I told the front desk person all the this he said thank you for bringing it to his attention. I would think other guests or the maid would have at least brought up the ceiling and black mold items.
