I checked out after 30 minutes of entering the room because the conditions were so poor. There's bugs, burn marks on the comforter and the ac was caked in black dirt. The room smelled moldy and the air irritated my lungs. There's no refund so I lost $80....you have been warned. Save yourself the trouble and go to an ecno lodge or motel 6, they're the same price as this place and way nicer.

$50 deposit must be on credit or debit card and deposit is returned in cash. Its a run down building with no wifi but they do have smoking rooms which is a huge plus and staff leaves you alone. Good place for couples trying to get out of the heat and bed to sleep in. Not recommended for children, unless its a must. I wouldn't recommend inviting your friends over either. Its a great price! We got it for the 4th of July holiday for $99 with tax came to $109. Thats the best ive ever seen on a holiday weekend.
