Positive Reviews

Cheap, Budget Accommodations

If your highest priority is affordability, this is your spot. You might want to consider paying in cash, though. Some have reported being significantly overcharged on their debit/credit cards.

Friendly Staff

The staff here are pleasant and welcoming. Helpful southern hospitality all around.

Spacious Rooms

The rooms are quite large here, with plenty of space to spread out your belongings and relax.

Negative Reviews

Check Receipts

Please make sure you check over your receipt and all transactions pending from this location. Some have reported being double charged and/or charged substantially more than agreed upon when using their debit cards. Some even reported their entire card balance being depleted. Others did not receive the room they reserved; still more were quoted a different rate over the phone than the one they got at check-in. Paying in cash might be a better idea here.

Dirty and Outdated

From the cockroaches and other insects roaming to the broken furniture and filthy amenities, you may want to skip this spot entirely. Old school box televisions provide few channels. The curtains are stained, bedding is filthy and carpeting is strangely wet - and stays that way. Keep your shoes on! Paint is peeling off the walls and there is mold in the bathroom. Lampshades are torn and deadbolts don't lock. The smell of mildew and must linger. Most found the sheets too dirty, and opted to either bring their own blankets or sleep on top of the covers in sleeping bags. Garbage is strewn throughout the grounds. Carefully shake out all your belongings before re-packing your car - you don't want to bring anything home with you from this place.

Sketchy Clientele

Lots of folks linger in the parking lot late at night here; many drinking beer, fighting and other sorts of shady activities.
