Bring your own soap, the crap they provide is disgusting. Wont stay there again, especially for that price. It was more of a 50 dollar stay. We paid more that double that. I... More

We arrived to find no toilet paper in the room! After a long car ride I had to make my kids wait so I could go to the front office and get some toilet paper. I was told 3 months prior to our vacation they would provide a roll-away bed because we are a family of 5. When I arrived... More

First off, they assigned us a room that was already occupied. It took 3 tries to FINALLY get a room. And the room we got was disgusting. Furniture looked like it was from the 1960's. The beds are bowed in the middle. The dressers and cupboards are filthy-looking. The bathroom was nasty. The floor looks like they haven't cleaned it... More

Dear Guest, We are sorry to hear that you had difficulties checking in at the hotel as there certainly must have been a mix up with room allocation at the Front Desk. I will address that with the Front Desk Manager to make sure that does not happen again. The Hotel is older and has outdated furniture but it is... More

My kids almost cried when we checked in. The lobby is tiny, took 10 minutes to get service, as some other poor customers were asking why they didn't have any towels, and others wondered why there were no sheets on the beds. at 6:30 at night. Dirty room, old heater, peeling paint EVERYWHERE. The pool & jaccuzzi had peeling paint,... More
