Verified Reviews of Golden Host Resort

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice place to stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The room is big and clean. Everything works well and they have a real continental breakfast until 9:30 AM. There are also many shops located near the motel.

03-Aug-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Aug 01 to Sat Aug 02 2014 at a $73.45 average nightly rate.
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The front desk person was very hospitable, but the room left a lot to be desired. The hotel room had musty odor upon arrival. Overall impression was poor: the sheets were ripped on the side and the lamp shade on one of the lamps was as well. There was a significant amount of dust in the corners of the room. It left an overall impression that the room needed TLC. The name resort does not apply.

"The worst, most dirty hotel where I have ever stayed."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We had two rooms, both were filthy dirty and stunk like mold. Shower didn't work and tub filled up while trying to take a shower. I would not ever, ever stay there again.
