Not bad for what we needed
Bed was comfy and room was clean, was not expecting the $100 cash deposit, not sure what it was for since they didnt check the room before we got it back. There was a sign that we had to bring our remote to check out but the clerk said that was not needed but not until we brought it down to check out.

Dangerous Place! Criminal activity rampant here
I wish I was exaggerating here- but upon arrival, it was like a disturbing movie scene, with drug deals happening in open hotel room doorways, many disoriented prostitutes walking around all drugged up, and even a guy wheeling a stolen air conditioning unit from the hotel across the parking lot- not to mention another guy looking in car windows for one to break in to! As if that’s not bad enough, you are not allowed inside the hotel lobby, and must talk to someone outside through a tiny bulletproof glass window…which is clearly to keep their own employee safe from the obvious. We were equally shocked to find the attached photo of their new policies, written in embarrassingly bad grammar. Most alarming is that despite their listing showing they accept Debit Cards & Credit Cards, they ask for a $100 CASH deposit with no indication of how you can get it back. I did not end up staying here for all reasons listed, but I urge you to read the reviews for this place (not just the few positive ones the listing shows upfront). Many many people have experienced the same things I listed, and feel should remove this hotel listing for the safety of the people they serve. The photos are misleading, and it is one of the cheapest hotels in the area for horrible reasons. I was unable to get back the money I paid for booking online, but atleast I didn’t fall into their Cash Deposit scam. Can’t put a price on safety!!

Never had worse treatment!!!
100 cash deposit. Why can’t you use a card? I had to go get this a 1AM. Didn’t code keys had to go back and have them rekeyed! No batteries in remote. Called front desk they wouldn’t deliver so no TV! Dirty bathtub no lights plugged in outlets not working! Tape on remote to keep batteries!!

Should be removed from
This was terrible. Has a $100 deposit per room not listed or mentioned anywhere except at check in. Rooms were filthy and television remote did not work. Front desk clerks very rude. Saw the two that should have been helping people ditying and talking to each other. Even though the motel is in a slummy area that was not the issue, it was the overall care and service this place showed to their customers. The wife and i had one towel to share and when asked for another we were told that they would bring us some. This never happened after calling the front desk with no one answering.

Arrived and staff was very rude and asked for $100 cash deposit. The room was so dirty and nasty we couldn’t believe it compared to the pictures in the website. The room AC didn’t work so we got a different room. This room was even worse, I mean so many things wrong and not enough time to list them all! I mean the bathroom door didn’t even have a door knob!
