I agree that this is not the "ritz", and it is better than first appearances might suggest. We stopped for the night on Halloween with rainy foggy driving. The parking lot was poorly lit, as was the sign, but we stopped to check it out. The connected bar had some patrons and we checked with the bartender on availability in... More

This place actually looks worse on the outside (exterior and hallways) than on the inside. The room was basic, but clean, with some maintenance issues (holes in the curtains for example). The hallway really does smell of smoke, and you're pretty likely to encounter some drunks in the hallway on weekends, but that's not really the hotel's fault.

I wouldn't stay if you have a romantic weekend in mind, it doesn't quite fill that niche. The price fit the ammenities so that was another... More

Too my surprise I actually got a room that I requested on the first floor near the lobby and no smoking. This was like a... More

Went there for a wedding. The whole place smells like stale smoke. We called ahead to be sure there would be a crib, but they couldn't find one when we got there. Eventually they found a play pen, and it smelled like stale smoke too! The bathtub didn't drain, there were stains on the carpet... Pay a few bucks more... More

I honestly have never stayed in such a pit. The price was that of a nice hotel. It was just dirty-dirty-dirty. The AC was not working in the first room. They moved us to another with slightly better AC. Both rooms were filthy. The girl at the front desk did try to help us. The oriental restaurant next door did... More
