I'd be to generous to give this hotel a average rating. It's a overpriced budget basic type hotel. It's expensive. The owner/manager is not friendly at all, the paperwork that he forces you to sign is just a blatant violation of privacy. All kinds of absurd rules. So called continental breakfast is poor, but more stupid rules posted on the... More

The only positive thing I would like to share here is that this hotel is cheap. The room and corridor smell very nasty. The bathroom is outdated and our tub's tap was not working at all. For shower, I literally counted the number of drops of water that came out. The bedsheet/comforter smelled very badly which will knock out in... More

Well all the rooms were sold out in this area as there was some convention in town, plus summer travelers. This place had very limited parking as the lot was being redone. This place was dirty, rugs filthy, and smelled really bad.The first thing I did was look for bed bugs, but didn't see any. It was supposed to be... More

At night, places in the parking lot seem too dark for proper security--I suggest finding a lighted area to park. The hotel clerk is behind a glassed in-area which gives a perception of trying to protect the clerk from something. The ice machine needs cleaning with dark stuff around the ice-ejection area. The room was spartan but appeared clean. The... More

The hotel could definitely use some updates but it was clean and decent for the price. The staff was very friendly. My friend wanted some water but the machine didn't have any so the guy at the desk gave him a cold bottle of water. The breakfast didn't look to good so we got breakfast out.

We had a reservation. As we walk in the hotel, the entire place smells terribly of smoke. They showed us the non-smoking rooms, but while the room smelled a lot better, when you put your nose to the fabric (which is how you are going to sleep), the fabric has smoking smells. They showed me another room, but it had... More

We checked in 12/10/14 the receptionist was extremely pleasant and helpful was happy with our room it has a coffee pot microwave refrigerator hair dryer ironing board and iron. The bed linens are a lil worn could use to be replaced and the restroom could use a little more attention however the price and accommodations were great!

Our overnight stay here was very pleasant. We had a non smoking room. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and pleasant. The breakfast was just right to get us started for the day. The price was right. My only negative comment is that the hallway had a very strong cigarette smell in it, if they remedied this, then I would... More
