This hotel is AWFUL - do not stay here under any circumstances. Checked into this dingy, warn down looking place. Got upstairs to the room to find mold, wet carpet, and cigarette burns. Informed the staff member at the desk that the carpet was wet, and he replied that this is a normal occurrence because of the air unit. Checked... More

This was one of the worst hotel experiences we have ever had. When we got to the hotel we had to wait 10 minutes for someone to come check us in. They couldn't print a receipt because their printer was broken. My wife and I decided to go up for a quick look at the pool and ended up getting... More

Wow. Where to begin. This place is beyond repair. They don't turn the a/c on in the hotel and you have a room unit that drips condensation into the carpets. We reported this and were told that wet carpets were normal. There were cigarette burns in the carpet and gross stains. Supposed to be a non smoking room but it... More

After reading all the negative reviews, I was reluctant to stay here, but the price and location made me gamble on it. Okay- it is not the Ritz, but it was adequate. They are remodeling several floors, the ice machine was dodgy, and there was nothing going on- the restaurant and lounge were closed, etc... BUT the staff was helpful,... More

I recently stayed here with my son's travel basketball team. I had to book through a travel agency for the Shooting Stars classic. I was told that the hotel had been remodeled 5 years ago. It seemed like it was more like 25 years ago. If you are more than 5 foot, the showers are not for you! The cable... More

We were so excited to stay so close to the cheer competition! That was about the only plus we found this stay. We arrived to the hotel in which the check in was easy but not friendly. Came up to the room and the room was less then expected. The "sleep number" beds did not work and there were dead... More

Stayed here this week with a group and had a very nice stay. Anytime you are paying less than $90 for a downtown hotel you are a little worried but we found it to be clean and the staff friendly. Im glad I didnt believe the other reviews. Our experience was a good one.

I travel A LOT and have stayed in places all over the spectrum. This one easily ranks highly on my list of worst hotels ever. - IT IS SO COLD IN MY ROOM. Granted, it's 5 degrees outside, but I slept in long sleeves and shivered all night. I didn't bother changing rooms because everyone else in my group had... More

Wow. This was just a real disappointing experience. Booked this room so that we could spend a weekend downtown, have a nice dinner across the street at Baxters or Lockview, and then enjoy the night with city views. Instead, we arrived to find a very ticked off customer in the lobby, who had been waiting for what he called "forever."... More
