    Dirty, out of date. No cable, slow internet, not worth price at all

    For a price of over $200 per night, it was highly disappointing. It was worth $40 as it felt like a hostel-type place. No amenities except for plastic cups, a bar of soap, toilet paper and towels. Staff was friendly and the place was decently clean. But everything was very old, original, basic, worn down, a wooden stick was keeping the window locked and the mattress caved in the middle.

    Back to the 1950's.

    They acted as if they had never heard the word "handicapped". The motel must have gotten on your list when no-one was looking. I could barely get into the bathroom, and that was after my husband had to take two sets of wheels off my wheelchair. I was unable to access the bathtub/shower. We checked out the next morning.

    When we arrived to check-in there was no reservation for us from Hotels.com. The receptionist accommodated us and charged us the same rate the website did with no issues. Is not the greatest hotel but for the price and what we went for it was good. Not too happy with Hotels.com for making it a little more difficult at check-in.
