I feel like I would have enjoyed my stay more if I didn't expect the features that were listed for this hotel. The pool was under maintenance, which I was aware of, but was assured that the hot tub and breakfast would be available. The hot tub was barely functional, we didn't use it because it wasn't hot and didn't... More

There was a mix-up with my online billing but the desk clerk, Dillon, spent about 20 minutes on the telephone getting it corrected. The Manguson Grand was about the cheapest hotel that I could find in the Fayetteville area but did not disappoint. My room was clean and comfortable. There was a full hot breakfast buffet but the waitress takes... More

This hotel is a real heartbreaker, because I've seen it go through many changes of management. It was once a delight. I did an event space there and it was just tough to watch. They do not, I repeat do not pay their staff, one of the girls that was working there told me she had not been paid in... More

First, the room we had should have been condemned. There was mold on the curtains, the shower rod in the bathroom was broken, the toilet didn't flush and that was the second room. The first room the door was broken. Second, over a month after our stay, we were charged a second time for the room. We have spent nearly... More

I was concerned about staying here because of recent negative reviews, but it was the location of our high school reunion so it was the obvious choice. Pleasant surprise. The room was slightly dated, but clean and quiet. Linens were fresh, heating and cooling system worked properly and quietly, bathroom was clean and fully stocked, breakfast was excellent and our...

Room was filthy. It looked like it had not been dusted, vacuumed or the bathroom cleaned for weeks. I could write my name in the dust of every surface. We stayed 1 night and the idiots at the front desk charged us for 2. Neither local or corporate management will return any emails or calls. We are working thru the... More

We called monthly to confirm that we were still on the reservation list and for the type of room we requested (double suite, two queen beds and a pull out sofa bed, sleeps 6). Arrival on September 25, 2014. Room we were given was not... More

When we arrived they did not have reservation but got us a room. They charged my Debit card for one night and after I signed for the room I saw it was only for one night. We told the person at the desk over and over we wanted three nights. So he took my card back and put us in... More

OMG, it was dirty and unkept. First you had to pass the dumpsters to drive around the back. My key did not work, house cleaning never bothered to come by. I did the 40% on Travelocity and called them to advise them to remove this Hotel or they will lose business. In the light of day discovered flees and what... More

On June of 2015 I will have my family reunion here. Reason is they are willing to work with you. Called all the other places in that area and they just had rooms but no "big" meeting area. Will not mention the other place but the had a 20 by 20 foot area (with 2 electric outlets) for $20 dollars... More
