Humuhumu’s description

This seedy motor hotel has two great things going for it: an utterly fantastic neon sign, and proximity to The Alibi

(it's right across the street). An overnight stay may not be for the faint-of-heart -- when I stayed there in May 2003, my door wouldn't latch properly, the curtains wouldn't close all the way, and the tub wouldn't drain. But the sign had a blue monkey on it!

Worked across street for few years...its a hooker motel. Area dicey at night. Co-workers said police found a kidnap vic there few yrs back. Who knows? Sign is a local icon & definitely the best part. Take a selfie with sign, get a drink @ the Alibi up the street & move on.

DO NOT STAY HERE
Just look at the sign and walk back to the alibi.

We tried to stay here but encountered bugs in the room. Getting our money back has been a nightmare.
