Would highly not recommend , was charged for nights that I was not there and was told that it was non-refundable. The rooms stink, wall paper was falling off, still had the hole in the wall open from previous plumbing issues. VERY UNPLEASANT PLACE TO STAY!!!!

The window in our room was broken - cracked from the top left to the bottom right. It had been taped up with duct tape. The desk clerk was totally unconcerned. Her... More

I decided on this hotel after reading the reviews of it being updated. Unfortunately the only updating is the carpet. The bathtub and toilet were quite dirty, we were supposed to have a nonsmoking room and instead we were stuck with a smoking room (absolutely disgusting!!!!) The beds were horribly uncomfortable, I think they've been there since the place was... More
