The room was absolutely disgusting. Had blood stains on the beds it had a metal prongs sticking out of all the outlets, black mold in the shower around all the window seals and door frames. It had water damage along the walls where the TV is. Has bedbugs on all the beds to where I had to take all my whole family to the hospital to get treated and burn all of our stuff that we had for our little getaway.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Office had a broken coffee machine in the lobby, no desire to fix it. In our room there was almost a 1" gap on the bottom of our motel door, enough that we stuffed a towel to keep out the light & draft. Needed to stand on a chair to turn on the heat. Worse yet, we got woken up by a call at 9:45am telling us that checkout was at 11, then a pounding on our door at 10:15 for the exact same message. Extremely rude people who just want your $ and for you to GTFO.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Hotel E Real would be a decent h(m)otel, if it would be thoroughly remodeled. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The carpet was dirty and the curtains were falling apart. I could still smell the smoke in the room, probably emitted from the old furniture. The bathroom, sink and towels were clean. However, I felt not safe at this place, because some shady people were hanging out in the parking lot drinking and talking loudly almost every night.

This place was dirty and very outdated not sure what they meant by newly renovated. Window blinds were all ripped. Placed looks very old not well maintained.

This motel is in terrible shape. I stayed here for 7 days on a business trip. I had to switch rooms twice. The TV in the first room was not working and the smoke detector in the room was beeping. The refrigerator in the second room failed after the first night, all the ice melted and made a puddle. The third room that they moved me to had semi-wet carpet and a faint pee smell. The smoke detector also had the battery popped out. But by that time, I didn't care any more. I reminded the staff of the popped out battery on the smoke detector, but they didn't replace it for 3 days. On the final 2 days of my stay, there was no hot water. So, if you like a place without hot water, without working smoke detectors and messed up furniture and carpet. This place is for you!
