I have stayed here twice, for a total of five nights. I think I paid for six nights due to the "mix up" where they lost my reservation online and could not use my email confirmation. I feel confident in my assessment of the poor value. The first room had a saggy pillowtop bed and a leaky faucet as well... More

I wanted to try this out for myself, even though I had read the reviews. As a drilling reservist (National Guard), I don't get reimbursed for my hotel, so I decided to try and save a little bit of money this time - bad move. I called to ensure (after I had made my reservation) that I was in a... More

Actually had to walk out of this place it was that bad. We had driven 600 miles and needed a couple hours sleep......couldn't do it. The bed was like a hammock and the smell was a cross between dog, cigarettes and mold/mildew. One lamp out of the three worked....the rest of the bulbs were burned out. The Wi Fi was... More

We stopped here as a quick overnight on a cross country move. We hadn't planned ahead & booked online 15 minutes before pulling in. We should hae dropped the extra $10-20 to go somewhere else. As soon as we pulled in there was a man (who was staying in the hotel) wandering the parking lot drinking beer without a shirt... More

I called while on the road to make a reservation. The price was $80 plus tax which I knew was high. The room was okay, but no extras. No iron or ironing board; no hair dryer. Guess I would have had to ask if I needed either. The breakfast they offered was pathetic. They were out of milk and had... More

Stayed here because they were pet friendly and the Hampton Inn is not. Bed was clean, staff friendly, hair dryer in bathroom had been removed and staff were aware of it. Breakfast was awful, milk was sour, the waffle mix was empty and they didn't have much else. Hotel is very dated. Spend a little extra and go somewhere else.

The hotel had several disorderly people hanging out in the parking lot drinking and laying everywhere, which made it feel very unsafe. Rooms are very small and smelled horrible. People lurks around the hallways all hours of the night, very noisy. Would recommend saving your money if you go there go some place else if you want to feel safe... More
