NEOLODGE - Stuck choosing between Cockroach Towers and Astrovilla (like that's hard), or falling for Presidential Palace? (but then again The Grand Neopian is a bargain!) If you're going out of your way to choose a hotel, then read this guide!

COCKROACH TOWERS (5 NP) This hotel…uh…place to stay is a dingy, deserted tower with dark, empty corridors, leading to dusty little dungeons, with a rock bed, dung bedside table and no lighting except for a little barred window with no glass and the large crack between the door, which is nearly falling off its hinges. It is infested with roaches. The floors are cold hard stone just like the walls and the roof. No electricity or hot water. Some past guests believe that the rooms are haunted.

RESTAURANT: Small, squashy room, infested with flies, old food sometimes a dead cockroach or two accidentally put inside. Food is served from 11am-3pm

BURGER BAR: Burgers are old pieces of food from the restaurant all mashed together! FITNESS CENTER: Consists of a log with rocks on the end for weights and a peeling, dented bike.

NEOPIAN TIMES DELIVERY: Previous days paper scrounged from the bin, takes up to 2 days to be delivered.

MAID SERVICE: Ugly Usukis with no manners, and no skill in cleaning. EN-SUITE BATHROOM: Hole in the ground to go to the toilet on and no where to wash your hands. No shower or bath.

JACUZZI/SPA: 12km walk to the nearest hot spring and it’s not even that hot. GROOMING: Using a spiky, green hairbrush and used soapy, cold water.

SWIMMING POOL: Located in the fitness center, a small ditch in the ground filled with sewerage water.

TENNIS COURTS: Old, raggedy, fallen volleyball net on the grass, BYO rackets and ball

SAUNA: Sitting on benches around a lit fire in a small room with no windows LAUNDRY FACILITIES: You have to wash your own clothes with some soapy water and hang them on a tree to dry.

OVERALL RATING: -3 out 10

FLEAPIT MOTEL (10 NP) Not much better than Cockroach Towers, Fleapit is located in a derelict office building, the floors is just moth-eaten carpet. Each room consists of a straw bed with a matching table, candles for lights. A small wooden wardrobe is inside each room, too. The lighting on the wooden roof is a flickering flea-repellant light that hardly lights up the room.

RESTAURANT: Indoors with small patio, food is served from 7am-7pm; food is moderately cooked as there is little electricity in this motel.

BURGER BAR: Serves drinks, burgers, chips and sandwiches. Some food is stale. Open 12 hours.
