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

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 Typically if a place is cheap, I just assume it will be simple and outdated, but not broken down and barely functional.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...
