Upon arriving there was construction everywhere and all games shown on website are gone. Hot tub is empty. We were told our rooms were upstairs and after going up the stairs, we discovered they were actually downstairs. When I went to take a shower I had to wait for all the discolored water to run through before showering. Then when... More

This is an older property in a "suspect" part of town. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful; however, you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear"! This hotel needs a complete renovation.

The hotel needs to be torn down. From the outside most of the curtains were falling down and the hotel looked trashy. The rooms were dusty and smelled bad and so did the beds and towels. Around 9 pm we needed more towels and the woman at the desk said we has to wait until 11 because the house keeper... More

The staff was very nice but when we got to the rooms the hall/rooms were very dirty and outdated looking. They were very dirty and needed to be dusted. In some of the rooms the curtains were falling down. The hotel itself was in a very scetchey neighborhood.

Cheap with a pretty good breakfast. The shower had standing water in it, and when I reported it to the teen working the front desk just looked at me. I had to suggest that may she should write it down or something so they could poor some Draino in for the next guest. The hot tub didn't work, and only... More

During my stay at this hotel, I had to kill several roaches. On the outside looking in, the hotel seemed to be decent. It was a very large room with an old sofa bed(didnt care to open it), dining table, and 2 televisions. The hotel also has a game room with billards, ping pong, and arcade games. Also, the indoor/outdoor... More

This is my second time to stay at this location in three years. It's great for kids, they have a game room near the pool with rooms near by that was very enjoyable for our kids. The room was basic, the bathroom was small but the bed was comfortable and clean. The decor is dated. If I did not have... More

For the price it was worth it and my 10 year old son loved the pool. We had reserved two nights at another spot and one night there was one too many. We were glad to find this place.Also, it was taxing to get on the hotel's wi-fi. Service was very good especially the front desk staff. We got coupons... More
