We knew we were in trouble when we were greeted at the hotel entrance by shirtless , tattooed smokers drinking at the entrance. We were then gouged at the front desk to the toon of 142.39. Upon entering our room we found a dirty stained, torn carpet, and a strange unidentifiable odor. 1/2 of the lights were burned out. The... More

I stayed here once before, when it was under a different name and management. Back then, the place had lots of problems. But the new management has really turned this place around. It's cleaner and quieter, and the staff seems very eager to please. In fact, they seemed to go our of their way to make sure I had a... More

My son had a baseball tournament in the area and this was the only place that had rooms available. No wonder why. As we checked in, the other employee at the front desk went to vacuum our room, we know because we caught him coming out of our room. Still VERY DIRTY. The room where they offer the continental breakfast... More

Rooms are very clean, remodeled, and beautiful. The beds and pillows are so comfortable, obvious that everything is new. The rooms are very spacious too with 40 inch flat scream televisions. The staff are always so helpful and kind.

Sadly my review is like many others. We have stayed here in the past and decided to give it one last try. Many years ago our first time here was great. Then it slowly went from good to bad and now really bad. When we went to check in we couldn't find anyone. Found the lady that was working outside... More

Absolutely horrible. We did not stay or go past the lobby. Needs to be shut down. No one at the desk, waited ten minutes because we had made reservation online and wanted refund when we saw the place. Dirty, empty, would never return or recommend.

This place is like the Shining Hotel in Colorado a Dump. There is no heat, no t.v, cockroaches and no breakfast. This place is advertised as having nothing. The ceilings were caving in over the elevators, Nichol was very rude as a manager, and mushrooms were growing out of the closet in my room. Do not stay here. Needs to... More

The floor had not been vacuumed, the bathroom was not clean, there were no washcloths, the towels were not clean, there were no lights on in... More

It is listed as ‘100% smoke free’, but the entire place smelled like an ashtray. Saw area that was for Continental Breakfast, it was 3 card tables set up, nothing like the photos online. The A/C in the room clanged like pots & pans being beaten. There were bags of garbage sitting in front of all the doors, cups and... More
