Horrible Horrific roach motel
! The outside looks amazing but when you open the doors to the room you are over ran by the smell of mildew in Musk the curtains are about to fall off the windows the roaches greet you everywhere you go there are burn holes all in the blankets. If there was a way for me to get to another room I would be gone if there was a way for me to get my money back I would be gone I would never write this ring as a 1 or 0 it would be a negative

If you like cigarette smoke...
Rooms had a heavy odor of smoke and the pictures do not reflect the overall condition. The clerk allowed us to cancel after checking in and we stayed at another place in town.
