Took taxi to the hotel, nothing around but 2 gas stations and a subway in the one. Room had trash on the floor and was not sure if the sheets were clean. We were only staying for one night so we stayed. Dinner of course was subway as we did not have a car and there was nothing else around.

Took a chance on this and regretted it. I get that the surrounding area is pretty rough, but there is no excuse for dirty walkways and unprofessional staff. The manager at first tried to pretend that we had not changed our reservation from 3 days to 1 (no way we would have lasted 3 days here); she had answered the... More

Before checking in I killed a roach in the lobby, waiting in line. When I got to my room, just about everything was broken, dirty, and smelled bad (in a non-smoking room). The entire inside of the property actually had a moldy/smokey smell.There were five small roaches on the bathroom walls and a cigarette burn on the sheets. And even... More

the room was noisy there were parties every night. there were cockroaches. The Parties Cod Be Smelled. Over All, Not A Good Place To Stay. The Staff Was Nice, However The Front Desk Staff Could Have Been FriendliWe. It WA Close To The Highway Which Was Fine. But That Was The Only Good Thing.
