I had to stay here for two days for IU orientation. We forgot to get a hotel and we had to stay here. I knew it was bad when the toilet paper was hanging from the wrong side, but first I will talk about the good things, the sheets smelled clean, they had a mini fridge. That's almost where it...

I was looking for a quiet place to stay to handle a few work conference calls that was easy on the wallet. This was a last minute decision to stay here but felt comfortable walking in. I will not speak of the interior due to what overshadowed the other small issues. Upon check in, I requested a late check out... More

This is the most disgusting place I've ever been. Filth everywhere. Doors kicked and punched in, pubic hair in the mattress pad, stains all over the pillows, blood wiped on the walls. My son was asked in the parking lot if he was "looking for a date" by a pregnant girl named Megan. There were coins and a nail holding... More

Customers were all coming out into the hall saying they couldn't believe how bad this place was and headed out to buy sheets. My pillow case had brown, blood type stains. Said no smoking but it reeked and my suitcase and belonging all smelled like smoke even after I moved to another hotel. My son caught a cold type virus... More

I chose the room based on the rate. Considered a slightly more expensive place nearby based on reviews, but I'll give just about any place a chance. First room we were given wasn't totally clean, in my opinion. I told front desk and they promptly apologized and got us into a different room. It was clean, had a comfortable bed... More

It was pretty cheap, which is why we picked it. But the whole place felt run down. Parts of the counter in the bathroom has peeled off, you could see tons of rust. Both times they brought us towels they were stained/dirty. The staff overall was very friendly though.

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
