We arrived on June 21 at promptly 4 p.m. for our check-in. First impression as I walked up to the front door started off bad. The door frame as you walk into the lobby was rotting and looked like it was about to fall in. I walked into the lobby and was greeted by the odor of stale cigarette smoke. It happens at most motels but I expected a little better especially when you are renting a Phantasuite for $200/night.

Check-in goes well and my wife and I drive around to the back of the motel to get to our suite. You never get another chance to make a first impression, nor a second. As we pulled into our parking spot, there was a semi-truck parked out in the lot and two grungy looking men were sitting outside of it. Later, they were cooking their dinner on a hibachi grill.

Anyway, back to the suite that we paid $200 for the night to stay at...

We got to our room, the non-smoking Jungle Suite with queen-sized waterbed. First thing I notice is that the room is the exact size of a regular motel room. It was dark and we had trouble finding lights but eventually found our way to them. The bed wasn't a queen sized bed at all. Turns out it was a double maybe even a full sized waterbed. Then it was over-filled and had air in it. It's hard enough to get settle into a waterbed but to have to contend with the slopes on the waterbed, it made it uncomfortable for two.

But I digress, we immediately noticed the jacuzzi. Nice touch. However, in order to get in, you really had to stretch. There was no easy way to get in but it wasn't impossible. A step stool on both sides could have made this easier to for the occupants to get in an out of. The humidistat cover was not secured. The screws that cover the humidistat were stripped out and were not able to screw back in. The jacuzzi was covered in cheap vinyl tiles instead of natural ones. While sitting in the jacuzzi, the inside of the tub was uncomfortable to sit in and seemed to have given my legs a "concrete burn."

The bed was located in a hut. The hut's entrance was low. I am 5'8" and really had to duck in order to into where the bed was too small and too sloped in the first place to sleep in anyway.

We went to the indoor pool. We took a step into the water and it was freezing. Why would an indoor not be heated? There was a rock formation that had a waterfall that fed into the pool. It was missing pieces so it looked a little junked up.

While walking around the hotel coming from our suite to the front desk reeked of stale cigarettes. I am completely disappointed with experience that my wife and I drove nearly a hundred miles to experience. Unfortunately, it was an experience I would soon like to forget.
