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.

Very good. Quick registration. Needed TV Remote, was given one but it was not for the tv in the room - just gave up and went to bed. Safe in room malfunctioning but did not need it anyway. Very clean and comfortable. Hot Breakfast (waffle) was good.
