This hotel feels like a once nice, now shabby hotel. It could be cleaner; other's hairs were around and the edges of the bathroom were not clean. Staff at the front desk was minimally interactive and polite and seemed quite depressed both days. But it probably matches the low price we paid. Breakfast was your usual cheap hotel low-quality breakfast... More

Our hotel has just begun an extensive but lengthy remodeling project. As I write this the first rolls of brand new carpet are being installed and when finished we will have new carpet throughout the hotel. As I understand it there has been no updating or remodeling done for years and our new ownership has begun to address those needs.... More

We love to stay in places where you can drive right up to your front door to unload, and keep an eye on car at night. This one fits the bill, although there is a section that is more hotel like. This must have been quite a place in its heyday (formerly called the Regency). This was our third stay... More

The only thing was when they gave you your room, you could not see the building letters in the dark. I suggested that they put Letters on the outside of the canopy's so that... More

For the money I think we are an unbeatable... More

The sole purpose of this trip was for my daughter, mom and dad to come down to see my son graduate from ROTC and UK. When we arrived at the hotel it was chaos. They had overbooked and were rushing to get rooms cleaned. We were able to get rooms at that time. My parents room was OK. Seemed clean... More

Apologies to this guest for the inconveniences that they experienced during their stay with us. Our check-in time is 3pm and if it was on a weekend and this guest showed up prior to 3pm there might have been a rush to find a room for this guest. We always try to accommodate our guests whenever possible. As to the... More
