This hotel is a very huge and old hotel. There is a large pool with 2 hot tubs and a very nice place for a large get together. The bar is just down the hall from your rooms and the restaurant is bar none.

Room was visibly dirty. The chair had a huge hole in it and the stuffing was hanging out. The room was heater by a window unit that was mounted into the wall. It turned on and off repeatedly every 30 seconds the entire time we were there (even though I set the fan to a constant speed). The bed was... More

Back in the days this must have been a top class hotel, but those days are gone. Now it is old and it looks old. Room seemed clean, bed was ok, breakfast was to laugh at. Reception was friendly and it was cheap. I guess you could say value for money.

This has got to be the most disgusting hotel I have EVER been in. The shower curtain had holes in it, the bathtub was moldy, the bar soap smelled rancid (I'm not kidding - I threw it away), the carpet was stained, the pillows were disgusting. Never. Again.

I had to book a room in this town due to short-notice travel for a family urgency. The hotel was adequate. It is a very worn property, but things were relatively clean, just really worn. It needs some updating. Staff seemed friendly, though, and the price was right.

When we walked in, the humidity in the hotel was dreadful. We attributed it to the pool that was visible to the lobby. I went to my room and tried to lock all doors. I never heard the latch when I turned the lock so I put the chain on and prayed for the best. The telephone had a red... More

Thank you for your review. I will address the items you note individually: Of all my years I have never had a complaint about humidity outside of the pool area; it is correct to assume the swimming pool caused the discomfort, but the guest rooms are individually temperature controlled. We take guest safety and security VERY seriously. If you went... More

From the exterior this hotel looks like an abandoned run-down building. The lobby and halls were unkempt and about 90 degrees. The a/c did not work in our first room. Moved to new room. Towels dingy, bed linens stained. Why a franchisor would allow their name to be associated with such a poor excuse for a hotel is unbelievable. Now... More

I made a reservation and wasn't coming in until later at night. I was pleased with the receptionist that covered the night shift because she was assured me that I will still get my room for the price I paid for. Getting to the motel it was very run down, but it was still acceptable. I had an issue with... More
