This trip was a complete failure and I would not recommend staying at this hotel, unless you want your indentity stolen and to be overcharged for an underwhelming experience in a greasy room. The first issue I encountered was arriving late, which was actually due to a cancelled flight and delayed connection. As a result, I didn't check in until 5 am. When I did check in, the manager handed me the keys with no sleeve or receipt. I walked to the far end of the building, only to have to turn around and walk back to distinguish figure out my room number. The room itself had a terrible paint job, an completely uncovered electrical box, a broken desk lamp, and lube residue on the headboard, nightstands, and entertainment center. There was a huge ceiling stain, incredibly dirty bathroom, with loud, caked in dust bathroom fan. There was very little that was good or relevant in this hotel. And I only spent a fraction of my time actually being there. I'm frustrated, disappointed, and upset. To top things off, I either lost my ID there or the front desk never handed it back after checking in. It was recovered, along with a note someone left saying "be mindful of identity theft from hotel, all maids....." I called 3 times to ask if my ID was found. And came back immediately. What do you know? My ID was there, but even after calling and asked if found to call me, but no one called. Very angry about that. This hotel is no good.

There is no fridge and or microwave in the room. We asked at the front desk about a microwave. Their response is “ did you request one” . Apparently they get stolen on a frequent basis. This should clue you in on what kind of area the motel is in. Old and ratty carpet throughout the bldg. our room had a stench.

The over charging was ridiculous, we had to switch rooms, we didn’t get what we reserved. Breakfast as a joke
