TripAdvisor Ratings


I wish I had read the reviews before booking this reservation. We checked in Saturday afternoon and the room was disgusting. There was blood and other body fluids on the tile floor. Splatter marks of something all over the curtain and lamp shade. The bathroom towels looked like cleaning towels. Not white at all. My husband and I didn't want to touch a thing in the room it was so bad. We packed up and went to the Comfort Inn. During check out the front desk person said they had to get a manager approval to refund our money. He also looked like he was tweaking on something. I called to follow up on the refund and was told a manager was not available. I suspect I will continue to get the run around regarding a refund and it's just a total loss. At least we were able to find a nice and clean room near by. The Comfort Inn is by far superior to this hotel!


Employee Tuk Nelson was super helpful and respectful! He was very caring and helped out with whatever I asked or had questions about. He's a very hard worker who definitely cares about the people who come in.


FILTHY! Negative stars! The room we booked wasn't ready because the housekeeper went home early, so we were downgraded to a cheaper room with no change in price. We were tired from traveling so we went with it. But when we got to our room we were in complete shock at the condition of it, not only because of the dirty sheets and floor, but because of the broken needles and remnants of meth in the bedside table drawers. The cheaper price is not worth the health and safety risk. The hallways are lined with trash. Smells like filth and cigarettes. The wash cloths looked like dirty rags. Hair and cigarette ash swept into corners of the room. The sheets looked as if they hadn't been changed. The building itself looked abandoned with boarded up doors and flickering florescent lights. People loitering outside. We left immediately. My pictures aren't that great because we were in a hurry to get out of there. This business needs to be reported for multiple health and safety violations.

Dirtiest place I've ever seen, never stayed. Online pics are not what you see in the rooms, just gross and unclean!

The sign is hard to see, pot smoker on my way inside ask if I want a puff, got keys, carpets filthy, bed has wrinkled sheets no blankets at all. not like the pics for sure. Urine on the end of the bed sheets, loose dirt on the ledge of the bed, easily visible due to the top mattress not aligned with box springs. Pot smoke filled the air on my walk to the room. I never stayed there, It was just too damn dirty. Go across the street to comfort inn. At least its clean and has bed blankets and looks inviting. If you want the feel of living in India or Mexico then this is for you. Do yourself a favor and don't stay there unless you want to get sick. I'm betting the fake wood floor inside the room has not been mopped. I'm serious you'll will gag at the site, not inviting at all. Good luck!

Price is right, room was not.

Stayed here on 1/10/2021. We got our keys and went to our room. When we got there this is what we found. There was stuff(dirt) on the lamp shade that could have just been wiped off, there were cigarette burns on the lamp shade, ants in the window sill (we contacted the front desk and never heard back from them) a smoke free hotel with cigarette ashes just on the outside of the window sill, the floor had dirt on it like it had not been swept or vacuumed, front desk said that only 1/2 of the entrance/exit doors worked, housekeeping burst into room unannounced, coffee pot had grounds left in the filter chamber and for being a smoke free hotel the hallways reeked of pot smoke. Yes, I realize we were in Humbolt County where a lot of people smoke pot, the hallways should not have smelled of pot. As a customer can I recommend the hotel? Not with a clear conscience. Will I stay here again? Absolutely not.
