    Bed was disgusting. Blood,stains, and beer cap in on and or under the bed. After a shower I wiped up the water that got on the floor with a white towel which quickly turned black. Will not be staying here again. No room service never got new towels and bed sheets.

    Absolutely disgusting. Filthy unkept property right on down to the staff. Unbelievable experience. Not only was it rundown but there was no heat no toilet paper no iron no blow dryer and no phone! Then when you got to the front desk to there was no one there! As if that was bad enough, over the PA system the staff had selected to play vulgar music! I cannot begin to describe the grotesque conditions of this place and the desk clerk did not care said “I know I’ve heard it all summer”. She, herself, could have been more presentable (sweatpants and T-shirt while ungroomed) but, then again, I suppose she was keeping up with the property. I plan on writing the town to ask about code enforcement as well.

    EVERYTHING! Everything from the mattress to the towels to the light sockets nothing in this place was right nothing even the signs that they had posted for the swimming pool area we’re broken but let’s not discuss the condition of the pool because this place was absolutely run down and beat up chairs were broken shelf and discussed that shower curtain rods even needed to be replaced it the shower knob fell off in the tub.

    Location was great. Motel was Close to Fishtails. Parking was good.

    Room had mold in it. I turned the AC on to dry it out it didn’t help much. The cleaning staff never cleaned the room once in 4 days. No big deal for a single Guy. Ran short on TP, the front desk guy gave me a roll. All in all it was a cheap place to stay in OC for Old Car Week. No parking for my small car trailer. Room was on 3rd floor so be ready for steps.
