I would sleep in my car in the dead of January before staying here again. My kids feel the same way. The smell in the hallway was horrible. The room was smelly, with broken towel bars, exposed telephone wires coming out of the wall, and the heater blew cold air throughout most of the night.

Here is everything you need to know: they charge the entire cost of your stay upon check-in because they know as soon as you get to the room after check-in, you will come back to the front desk demanding a refund. This was exactly what happened to us a couple months ago. We asked for a refund because we were... More

Where to begin......... The front desk staff was incredibly friendly, so I'll give them that. It was almost as if they were completely unaware of the poor quality of the rooms within their establishment. Typically if a place is cheap, I just assume it will be simple and outdated, but not broken down and barely functional. Our room seemed as... More

I forget when my boyfriend and I stayed there, but the first time we stayed there they told us a check out time. Well the next morning they came earlier then what they said. We tried getting our stuff packed and they wouldn't give us a chance, they kept knocking on the door telling us to get out and my... More

This hotel is in need for extensive renovation. The rooms are old, the television in the room is from the 1980's and the color is almost non-existent, the towels are like sandpaper, the toilet paper is like newspaper, there is no iron in the room, there is no hair dryer in the room, and the bed is as hard as...

Room decor is outdated. Security is a joke. Bed was so hard I would have got a better night sleep on the floor. Finding a working outlet in room was near impossible. Water pressure in shower was minimal, hardly rinsed soap off. Breakfast was beyond being a joke. Don't even think about a pool - I guess it's to expensive... More

I have stayed here many times on business. We are always greeted like family. Our rooms have always been clean, comfy and reasonably priced. A good place to stay and feel welcome. Yes, you can pay more somewhere else and get a fancier room. But the staff here makes all the difference.

this hotel was easy to find and clean and friendly staff. But the we were by noisy people who slammed doors and run up and down the halls until 2 in the morning. I would like to stay there again but will ask to be away from noisy rooms that the people will be partying in!!!

The clerk was very nice at check in - pleasant and informative. After that, the hotel was extremely run down - holes in carpet, paint old, rooms worn down. My advice is to pay a little bit more and go elsewhere. I will most definitely not return.
