Nasty hotel!! When I booked the hotel room, We were told the rooms were non-smoking. When we walked in our room the smoke smell knocked you over. Rooms were not cleaning....Floors looked like they hadn't been swept in months, stains on tables, and the sheets had spots on them. The bathroom had hair in the shower and vanity. The towels...

My family and I stayed in 2 rooms at this hotel on 12/6-12/8. We usually stay in a different hotel but were forced to use this one because the Big 10 tournament was in town and our usual hotel was full. The hotel admittedly up'd the price because of the tournament which really made it much too pricey for what... More

We stayed at this hotel because the Hampton Inn across the road was full and we had been driving all day and just wanted to stop for the night. The desk clerk was on the phone when we got there and had to wait 5-10 mins. for him to finish his conversation. The hotel itself looked run down and the... More

Owner is a thief who can hardly even speak English, so it was hard to resolve an issue. My credit card was charged and they made me pay again in cash once I arrived. I was charged twice and the owner wouldn't listen to me explain or pay attention to the proof I was trying to show him. Had to... More

This is a hotel I wouldn't recommend to anyone. We noticed a very strong odor when we first opened the door to check in. A strong perfume smell, trying to cover up something. As soon as we walked past what once had been the pool I knew they were trying to cover up the over-powering smell of cholrine. They had... More
