I love the electric palm trees at the entrance. Gives such a classy feel to this rather old, but well maintained hotel. Very conveniently located and reasonably priced, this hotel is a hidden gem. Much more upscale than the other chain hotels available in the area. My room was very chilly, good A/C, clean and well maintained, with a new... More

Brown water came out of the shower. I think that's all that needs to be said, but I'll hit on other areas. The room was run down (the kind you keep you shoes or socks on in at all times). The railing outside is under construction so plywood was reinforcing it, which didn't appear very safe. It was very loud... More

Reasonably priced but needs lots of updates. Should have stayed somewhere else but we were tired and hungry and needed to sleep. TV wouldn't work so had to walk to desk for batteries because clerk was only one there, then found out the TV was unplugged in back of TV. Desk clerks were very nice and helpful.

I wish we had spent the extra money to stay somewhere else. This is not the kind of hotel you plan ahead to stay at, more like one you stop at when you are too tired to keep driving and you are desperate. First, we could hardly figure out how to get in the driveway, it is horribly marked! We... More

We are sorry your stay was not what you expected. We do have signage at the top of the entrance coming into the hotel, however I can see how this can be overlooked especially if its your first time in the area. I get lost or miss a turn almost everywhere I go! Most guests appreciate the outside entrances, allowing... More

... but the hotel was in the middle of major construction. [6/13/14] The upper balcony railing of building 3 was supported by plywood. Which isn't such a big deal until we realized that the end staircase was also closed off, and that meant a very VERY long walk from the middle staircase to the next-to-last room at the end of...

Thank you for your stay! Our construction is now complete and all stairwells are open for use. There were safety reasons the one stairwell was off limits during the renovation. I am sorry if this was an inconvenience for you. We look forward to your next stay, located off the main highway our location is very convenient and close to... More

Do yourself a favor, spend the extra money and do not stay here. People were sitting outside on makeshift chairs, drinking and smoking pot. There were old automobiles that looked like they had been parked in the same spot for weeks. It was not a good spot to stay for any amount of money. We did appreciate the staff. They... More

I am sorry you were uncomfortable during your stay. When somebody witnesses other people doing things they shouldn't at any hotel, this should be reported immediately to the front desk. Any front desk agent, at any hotel, would remedy and take care of the situation at hand. They are trained to handle any issues that may arise. Believe me when... More

Horrible! Clerk never asked how our stay was so I offered my thoughts. We are both elderly disabled and when making reservations asked to be close to lobby. We were put at the very end of a 50 unit block which had no security and on edge of woods. Unloaded bags and keys didn't work (typo). So packed back up... More

Wow, I am truly sorry your experience was not good. Our front desk staff tries to accommodate all special requests daily. We did have some rooms under renovation which stay vacant during the renovation process. Yes, we were limited on smoking rooms at this time. I am sorry we were unable to get you close to the lobby. The good... More

if you are just visiting this hotel for the spirit bar and grill you will probably enjoy your experience but I would not recommend that anybody spend the night here especially people with children unless you want to explain why the cops are responding to this hotel numerous times a night for the delinquent people who hang out and live...

Thank you for visiting our lounge area, hotel and for the review. I am not aware of any night(s) when the police responded to our hotel numerous times for any reason. However if this was the case, I do hope you contacted our management to explain what you experienced. All hotels have had the police called, these times being very... More
