Dirty Sheets!
I did not realize we were booked into a smoking room! Was absolutely horrible. Front desk said that is a room they usually put workmen in! Well, I am sorry, our workmen deserve better than this! Air so stagnated I felt like throwing up, shower head covered with mold, and when I turned the sheets back, there were crumbs in the bed and some loose change among the wadded up sheets. Both beds in the room did not have clean sheets, though the pillows looked clean and fluffed and the comforter spread neatly on the bed. Front desk did bring me a fan and clean sheets so I could change the bed myself. Unfortunately there was several events in town and not a non-smoking room to be found and not a nonsmoking room to be found anywhere! Second night the manager did put us in a newer part of the motel that was very clean. Wound not take a chance again on this place!

Was pretty upset that after making reservations and being on the road for 13 hrs that our room was not ready when we got there at 5:30 when check in is at 3 had to stand around waiting for 30 minutes and all we was offered was a banana no upgrade for waiting no discount on price.. a banana after given our room number waiting on our room housekeeper was busy talking on her phone instead of trying to finish cleaning after inside found mold on the window seal couldve complained but I didnt after being head of housekeeping for many years sometimes tend to pick up on things not done overall after waiting and being offered bananas for having to wait wont book here again
