"Unexpected Security Deposit."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I paid for the Motel in advance. When I arrived The Motel required an additional $100.00 deposit. I don't like surprise costs. They say it is because I booked over the internet. Regardless, they should include that information when you book the room. Other than that, the Motel was good.
