We booked this hotel online, thru Choice Privileges. When we drove up their were several loud young people grilling out close to our door. They were carrying on conversations with another person on the second floor deck. We went in, sat things on the round table and the top tipped off. I sat in one of the chairs and the... More

I can't speak for the experiences of other reviewers, but my brother-in-law and I had a pretty solid stay here. Yeah, the room was a bit smelly till we got used to it (didn't smell dirty, more like a cafeteria in an old folks home), and yes, we were confused at first by the nicer Quality Inn lobby up front,...

We were very tired and just wanted to get some sleep. We called the Quality Inn and Suites and was told there was 1 room left for their sister hotel that was literally next door and so we took it. After getting something to eat we went to the room and it was a dump!! The chairs at the table... More

If Filthy, Smelly, and Old are your thing, you will love this place. Don't let the cheap rate fool you, you will be sooooooooo sorry. Gets one star because it is not possible to give it zero. Walls are paper thin and you hear EVERYTHING going on in both rooms on either side. Stay away. Sleeping in your car is... More

3rd. time my inlaw booked a room in this Dump.(Must be a glutton for punishment) Desk attendant could not or would not speak clear "English". Seemed that she had been interrupted from something more important than taking care of us. We were given a smoking room on the backside of the building even though we specified "NON-Smoking".We had to leave... More

There are 2 hotels in one, be careful when you book. We met a couple that booked just like we did but they were not upgraded to the main building as we were. Now, when I say "upgraded" I use that term loosely, and my wife stated how bad it must be if we were upgraded into one of the... More

A mixed review here. Hotel hidden behind a Quality Inn and has maybe 35-40 rooms Nice enough front desk & check in. OLD hotel with old rooms. Mostly clean with an earwig in the bathroom and some other little bug I could not identify. I'm glad my spouse was not with me, she would have insisted we move out. At... More

We only stayed here because we were traveling with my mother in-laws cat. Returning the cat the her after she came home from the nursing home. We were quoted one price, and the charges seemed to escalate from there. If it were not for the cat we would not have stayed there. Bottom line: Choose another hotel.

I wish I had read the reviews here first. We selected the place because we had free points with Choice Hotels. I had been injured on our trip and could not help my husband drive. We were both very tried when we got there or we would have moved on. The room smelled terrible (we had put chair in the... More
