The hotel was old but in good condition the staff was friendly. The location was excellent to the venue i was going to. Overall my stay was good i think an adjustment could have been made to the selections at breakfast.

It was clean and convenient to our travels. Claudia was the person who checked us in and she was friendly and efficient. The hotel itself has seen better days and the smoking rooms could be smelled from the stairwell. Our room was spacious and clean, many TV stations to watch and a fridge and microwave. On the downside, the pool... More

We pulled in to this hotel at about 10 P.M., to see printed 'NO VACANCY 8/1' paper signs plastered everywhere. We then parked, and passed a toothless woman looking to score some drugs on our way through the parking lot. the lobby looked nice, but the sound of a loud party was almost overwhelming. We approached the front desk. Sam... More

I've stayed at worse 2 star properties. The room was big, fairly clean. The hotel has been recently renovated. The breakfast was pretty good. Waffles, sausage, hashbrowns, cereal, oatmeal, muffins. The walls were thin though, and I could hear the neighbor's kids throughout the night. I would stay here again.

The hotel was quite and very comfortable. It was right off the toll road and on a major street. Easy access and easy to find your way around. Front desk was very helpful when we asked directions. The hotel had free parking, free hot breakfast and a nice pool (Did not swim, no time) but it was indoors and looked... More

The Lobby looked great, the halls and carpeting where filthy. Thought at one time I'd see a silhouette of a body outlined on the hall floor. Got to my room to find 2 chairs piled in a corner with the arms busted off, a desk with no drawers. Had no water preasure in bathroom, no refridge,no microwave. Mattress must have... More

Let me start by saying I booked this room last minute. I picked this location because it is close to Horseshoe Casino and the casino does not have a hotel. Check in was great and had no problem with my reservation through a third party site (priceline). I had a non smoking king size room which was clean and your... More
