Mold and mildew everywhere. The whole hotel smells like smoke. Extremely dirty! Don't stay there!!!!! If you are planning on staying there for the balloon fest then stay at a hotel in mount vernon. It is 100× better!

I only booked my family there because of it's close proximity to Fairview Park and the Centralia Restaurant. My mom and dad had stayed there 3 years ago and while it wasn't great, it wasn't nearly as bad as it is now. The phone in the room didn't work, the chair and ottoman were filthy. The pool, three years later,... More

This hotel was hands down one of the, if not the dirties hotel I have ever had the mispleasure of staing. From the lobby, to the elevator to the room, dirty, dirty, dirty. Furniture was stained and had hairs all over it. Bathroom, dirty. Towels where tread bare. I am pretty sure I will never stay here again, nor would... More

Pool was closed. My room had a noisy air conditioner, a loose toilet seat, and poor television reception. The desk clerk put me in another room which was better. But the upholstered chair and ottoman were stained and the floor lamp bumped against the back of my head. The television was not flat panel and had poor resolution and had... More

Bad service, dirty, trashy, broken down. The blankets had cigaret burns on them. The room smelled bad, and was filthy. I should have saved the $60.00 and slept in my car. We asked for a 12:00 pm check out, at 11:02 the front desk was calling threatening to charge me for another night. At 11:05 the maid was banging at... More

The chair in the room had big stains all over it. The TV cabinet had doors that had to be open to watch the TV, which isn't a big deal, but they had a desk right next to it so one of the cabinet doors couldn't be opened all the way. We was going to move the desk, but it... More

Our room was immaculately clean. Great location! Comfortable. I can honestly say that after reading other reviews, I was worried. As soon as I walked into my room, I was relieved! We had no issues whatsoever.

Have been staying here a couple of times a year for at least 20 years. It has been going steadily downhill, but this time was the worst. Booked through Expedia, which listed 2 non smoking single rooms left. The ashtray made a great soap dish. Threadbare sheets & towels. Moldy shower curtain. Filthy phone. No luggage rack. Ice machines out... More

We were there for two nights because of a swim meet. For my career I travel...A LOT...having a platinum status with Marriott for more than five years. We wanted to stay close to swimming facility due to weather predications. This hotel was older but well maintained and one of the cleanest I have ever stayed at. I will gladly stay... More

Not much I can say after all the bad reviews lately. We had two rooms. Both clean enough. I was most upset that the beds are not queen beds as the website says. They are either doubles or fulls. Me and my wife are not the smallest folks and it was a bit tight. The breakfast is very bare. That... More
