I really like the employees they are really helpful. I love the location. Denny's is right next door and the hospital is just across the street. Rooms are nice but need minor repairs. Other than that i loved my stay and i want to go back this summer. I felt very safe.

Room was filthy & sheets had been used. I'm shocked the health department hasn't shut it down. The non smoking room smelled of drugs & mold. Left 15 min after checking in, owner is a jerk wouldn't even listen or come see dirt in our room.

Too bad I cannot give this place NO STARS!!! This place was the worst hotel I have ever and probably will ever stay in. Kayak and our phones weren't loading ratings until it was too late. We booked it. The outside seemed okay. I started to get nervous right as we signed the paperwork to check in the cops showed... More

This place was nasty. People were standing around outside because the A/c didn't work. The pool had been closed for over a year. Reluctantly I got the key to my room and opened the door and the beds hadn't been made up. It was filthy. Felt like I was in a third world country and would be attacked by bugs.... More

I understand that for the price, the rooms were to be no frills. The room was clean. I understand the peeling paint, the peeling bathtub, the holes in the sheets. There was a coffee maker and yet no coffee. I did not like that the windows did not have a screen on them and that the AC pumped out warm... More

The room was filthy and grimy and the staff and management are cheap and inconsiderate. There is central heat and air that is controlled by the management at the front desk. It is set to turn on if the temperature gets above 78 degrees. When I called the front desk to speak to the manager about my hot room I... More

This place was horrible! Our room had two queen beds. One of the beds was a queen size mattress placed atop a full size bed frame (tacky). The toilet didn't work right. There were pen markings on the wall. The non-smoking room smelled like smoke. Pay an extra 30 bucks and stay some place else.
