We were having trouble with our trailer so we decided to stay here for the night. The two ladies at the desk when we checked in were professional (if not friendly) and it was okay. The TV picture was fuzzy, but watchable, and the room was reasonably clean. A note in the room and lobby offer a late checkout of... More

The place is gross, the registration people are slow, the manager doesn't care, the hallways smell like pot and you can't even get the internet in the rooms like advertised. Do Not book this hotel. It's a JOKE!

The $32.99 on the sign is a scam, i paid $62 for my room & it was not worth it! The lobby smells like cigarettes, there are scetches looking people hanging around and my little boy found a Crack pipe out in the grass!!! Do yourself a favor and avoid this place it's not safe for kids!

If you want to find drug paraphernalia in your room, rude staff and management from hell, stay here. Don't believe the $32.95 rate on the sign, it's like winning the lottery if you can get it. Don't bother making reservations because they'll take the reservation and when you show-up, they won't know when the room will be ready. This is... More
