Check in took us over an hour, as I had to check out three rooms before I found one with a clean enough tub and shower so we could at least refresh ourselves before bed and upon awakening. The entire facility had a stale cigarette like stench to it, there were overflowing trash dispensers, trash on the floors in the... More

Even though we got the hotel at a great price for the week there was several things wrong. The first thing that caught my attention was the fact that the side entrance into the hotel, which was suppose to be locked, wasn't and anyone could come in at anytime. One of the elevators was out of order, Sauna wasn't working,... More

Stayed for 2 of the 3 nights we booked. Hotel directly off the highway, but in a sketchy part of town. Very dated property, but clean. Breakfast included, basic but edible. One complaint I did have was the hotel manager's brother came outside our second night, invited himself to sit down with my friend and I, outside, late evening (rudely... More

Nothing works! Bad TV, no air, wi fi only in lobby, fridge luke warm! Go to motel 6 if you want to save money! I travel often for work and this was my worst hotel stay ever! Definitely will never use this chain again!

We stayed here one night on Memorial Day weekend. I had read mixed reviews, but the price was great at $40, so we took a chance. The front door looked a little cruddy and I thought we might have made a mistake. Our room was clean and comfortable. There was a table but only one chair, so that might be... More

Room was clean but the hallways were very drab and stink. Overall not bad for what we paid but definitely a hotel that was very good in its day but that was 20 yrs ago. The lady helping with breakfast was very nice but only one waffle machine so be prepared to wait.

The first room we were issued had no smoke detector with just the wires hanging out of the wall, the bathroom sink detached from the counter when pulling on the water faucet. The door handle to the bathroom was loose and could detach, locking you inside, the carpet was filthy and had white stains (spots) of something all over it.... More

The lobby is deceitful as ever. Our room was on the second floor and elevator was out. Hallways dark and gloomy and smelled of bad cigarette smoke. The room was awful. Cigarette burns on toilet. Pubic hair in shower. Wall Socket missing plates and burned up like they were lighting cigarettes with it. Fire alarm ripped out with wires hanging.... More
