We got in late last night and needed somewhere to stay just for the night. Cheap prices for a cheap hotel. 2 floors of rooms and no elevator. Room was dirty and they keep ac off in the rooms. It took about 3 hours to cool down the room. Definitely won't be back

I just got in the hotel and I'm already leaving this review. First of all, my disabled grandma had to trudge up the stairs one step at a time because there was no elevator.

This hotel smelled of cigarettes and was filthy. Carpet in room was un-vacuumed and dirty, bedspread and blanket were stained, and I had to put a towel down on the chair before I sat. I would have left but as it was graduation weekend there were no rooms available anywhere else. The Manager never returned my calls of complaint.

After driving most of day and night we pulled off to stay the night. Thankfully it was only one night. Rundown and dirty and overpriced. Toilet looked as though it hadn't been cleaned in years, hair everywhere and it stunk. Flooring was coming up all along wall (see pic) I get that it's a college town but come on! We... More

Room was one of the dirtiest I have ever stayed in.... 1. Walls over entire room and bathroom were dingy with dirt. 2. Both mattresses had red stains on side, only can wonder what that was... 3. A/C unit had black mildew inside of air vent. 4. Both chairs next to table had stains all over cushions 5.. Vent in... More
