Will never stay here again. The room was spacious, but not the cleanest. The toilet seat had to be cleaned by myself. There was no provided soap. The blanket had a rip. The carpet was stained and torn. Called for pizza delivery and was told that papa johns could not deliver there due to insurance and high occurrences of robberies.... More

We arrived at this place around 5:00 p.m. on Oct. 24th and went up to our room--Room 509. The first thing I saw was a large, dead cockroach on the carpet. We looked a bit closer and saw how filthy the carpet was, how there were holes in the sofa, and how there were holes in the bedspread. We looked... More

This hotel\apt? Is more than likely staying open by the hair on their teeth. The buildings are completely not up to any particular code. The place is old and has not been properly maintained for who knows how long. Things are rigged to work. Nothing is up to par. I travel on business and happen to come into town during... More

rooms are like apartments. This place looks like it used to be an apartment complex. Clean but run down. Has lots of potential. Breakfast is standard eggs, sasuage, grits, biscuits, juice. No extras in the rooms like tolitries. No dishes in the kitchen, but the kitchen is full size. Beds can be better, but I'm biased to mine at home.... More

I booked one night here as a package through Expedia. I should have researched it more! The woman at the front desk was very nice and helpful. However, that is where the positive review of this hotel ends. This hotel has rooms set up like apartments (it may have been built in the early 70s as an apartment complex). My... More

Do not use their services if you expect timely shuttle service to the airport. Waited over an hour to be picked up. Driver never even slowed down. In fact, we're still waiting. Will NOT use them again.

We were here for 1 night only, that was a blessing. The hotel or apartments as they really are, are very run down, the only item that has been upgraded is the flat panel TV in the living room. Our room was at the back of the complex, on the first floor, the apartment is 2 rooms with 1 in... More

This place screamed "sketchy". From the second I walked in the room, it reeked of stale cigarette smoke. It looked like the dumpiest apartment I'd ever stayed in as a college grad, and smelled worse. I walked over to the bed, and the bed cover had a hole. The foam cover (?!) underneath the bed cover had a smaller hole,... More

As a single woman, I felt very unsafe. There were men constantly walking around the property that didn't appear to be guests of the hotel. I spoke two some cops who were there as private security and they reinforced my perception of the property. Aside from security issues, my room didn't have soap and I didn't have internet access for... More
