Expedia should not advertise this motel because of: Shower would not turn on at all Bugs in the sink Holes in the towels and the bedspread Blood stains on the bedspread The usual signs of poor upkeep like peeling paint and scratches on the door and scuff marks on the doors etc. No safety lock on the door Allowing people onto the property who were banging on doors up and down down the motel at 5:30 in the morning. That was scary.

Disgusting hotel. Completely unsafe to be in. Dirty, bad folk, looked nothing like the pictures online!! Stained towels, dirty sheets! Trash piled outside of hotel rooms not taken care of. Drug deals and homeless people living in the parking lot. Crime is high! I counted 7 sheriff cars by the lobby at one point not sure why. I was afraid to leave my room at all without my husband with me. DO NOT BRING KIDS HERE. I didn't even stay for my second night, I just went to a new hotel down the street. An absolutely horrific experience. This hotel needs to be shut down.
