Stayed here for business for 4 days. To start with the wi-fi is terrible. Dropped internet every 5 minutes is just ridiculous. We had 2 people in room and every day we got 2 bath towels 2 washcloths and 1 towel to share at the sink. Daily we asked for more towels to be left and were totally ignored. If... More

Everyone was close to each other, all the rooms were on one floor, the team cooked out on the patio, played in the pool, had clean rooms and most of all a very... More

We were in town for a local event and stayed two nights. The hotel was clean. Nothing fancy, but had everything we needed. Bed was comfortable, shower was decent, outdoor pool was clean. My only complaint was the cheap towels. There is a good restaurant right next door and there is a Dollar General within easy walking distance if you... More

When we first arrived, although I had made reservations two weeks in advance, we were told that the room wouldn't be ready until 2pm. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but, I was told when I made the reservations that we could show up as early as 11am and it wouldn't be a problem. We got there at noon. When... More

This place was a pleasant surprise. We were looking for economy and basic conforts and this was it. The room was large and well furnished. The furniture was a little "tired", but everything was clean and the desk personnel were very friendly. Would definitely stay here again

Beds were clean and comfortable and bathroom was big with a strong shower. We used the outdoor pool - very nice. The people we encountered at the front desk were freindly... More
