The floor in the lobby was coming up and there were massive stains on the carpet. The room was outdated and was dirty. I wa afraid to... More

I stayed here three nights in early February 2014 while conducting onsite HazMat Employee & RCRA Training at a local company. All I needed was a warm place to sleep, a place to work, a good breakfast, and a low rate. This hotel failed on three out of four. The heater did not work in my 1st room, or the... More

The room was fairly clean, but the Breakfast was watered down coffee, fake orange juice, packaged mini donuts, and dried out bread. Only one side of the toaster worked. Very little toilet paper in the room, no kleenexes. We did have a refrigerator, but no microwave, coffee maker or alarm clock. (In the description of the rooms, it said this... More

Convenient to a meeting place. The price was right. No hot water in the morning. Would not return. Asked for additional pillows and got them when laundry was done, about 2 hours later. Safe location because it is next to police and fire station.

Stayed here for one night. It was near my event and the cheapest option. I have stayed in a lot of budget hotels and often in Exono lodges. This is a disgrace! First, the doors that open to the outside (on the ends of building) do not lock in any way. I had a non smoking room and could barely... More

My stay at this hotel was an enjoyable stay. Check in was very quick and the desk clerk provided great dinner recommendations. There are quite a few fast food and sit down restaurants down the street from the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and answered every question I had. I will definitely... More

This hotel should be closed down for many violations. I booked this hotel on hotwire.com wish I would not have charged me $54 bucks for smelly nasty room. The sheets were dirty the room smelled like an old closet. The fridge smelled of mildew. There was bugs on the desk when I turned the light on. I had dirty sheets... More
