This was the dirtiest hotel/motel that I have ever stayed in and I was a Peace Corps Volunteer staying at $2 a night places all over East Africa. Our non-smoking room had cigarette ash everywhere and stunk of stale smoke. When we called the front desk to tell them that we had reserved a non-smoking room their response was that... More

Everything here is gross. A family on our trip called the police because they found a baggie of something appearing to be drugs. The police verified it was crack cocaine in their room. It was very dirty. They kept doors that you were supposed to use swipe cards to get in open with junk in the doorway. The aircomditioners barely... More

So nasty I wouldnt wish it on my worst enemy. Hairs in the bed along with dirt. No chain on door. Bathroom was a nightmare. Lightbulbs just hanging out of the ceiling with no fixture. BAD area. The grossest, nastiest place I have EVER been in.

I was in the Army for 15 years so, I slept everywhere from in a dirt hole under a truck all the way to 5 star accommodations. This time- I was by myself and in a bind for a room so, I apprehensively settled for this hotel. Upon walking in, It looked like it was abandoned and ready to be... More

The room was ok. TV was brand new and not set up so we had to switch rooms. Bedspread had cigarette burn. No bugs. The phone and TV were new. The showerhead massage was fabulous and the hot water was plentiful. The front desk clerk was very nice. They need to finish remodeling and replace the bedspread. The bed was... More

Extremely nasty and run - down hotel. Very rude staff. Don't use a credit card to check in!! Do NOT recommend this place at all!! Should not be a member of the "Choice" hotels. It is a disgrace to the name!

This hotel has to be the worst hotel I have ever seen the beds and pillows were stained and the toilet was broken we stayed here on a church youth trip and would have left if I were paying for it. For the love of God do not stay here go to the holiday inn express down the road!!!!!!!!!!

Something about roaches in my room, made me dislike this hotel. The roaches liked to hang around the phone. Can't believe I even spent the night, but the city was full due to a convention in town. I promptly checked out first thing this morning.

I only stayed for 5 min. Everything in this hotel is dirty and broken. When I got to my room I checked the bed pillow cases all stained and bed sheet had what looked like blood stains. Carpet was dirty and toilet had mold growing on it. Do not waste your time with this hotel even at 49.00 a night... More
