We are traveling with pets so we try to get nice rooms with a vacationany feel for a good price. I checked out this hotel first and did not like the room. however after going through many other hotels nearby and finding pet fees way too high, I decided to go back and ask if I could see another room....

This place is gross!!! Don't let the pictures fool you. First I found a dirty sock in my bed. Second I had to kill a cock roach. Third the beds are old and sunken in, in the middle. Fourth the shower was old and dirty, I refused to even use it. Fifth, the tv was as old and big as... More

We used to go here when I was a kid, and it was a great place to stay. That was over 20 years ago. We went recently for one night as a "nostalgic" trip and the stay was miserable. We tried 4 different rooms - each had it's own problem. Most smelled bad, had excessive wear (things like the TVs... More

Booked what we thought was a budget hotel stay. This place was much better than expected for the price. For about $80 we had a massive room with sofa and table. The grounds were nice and the lobby was quite upmarket.

The checking process was very pleasant. The rooms were clean and orderly. The overall feel though was of a place that could use some TLC. There was a large purple stain in the bathtub and on the bathroom floor. The ceiling had water stain indicative of a active leak. All in all an acceptable place to stay for a night.

The location is great, the grounds and hotel are beautiful, however it urgently needs upkeep, attention to small details that a handy man could easily fix. We had a suite, very disappointing...the pillows not comfortable at all, on the contrary. The shower curtain was hooked in one area with a safety pin, the towel had a hole with black marked... More

If you just need a place to sleep this hotel is ok. The rooms are old and musty and in one room we rented the heat didn't work. The staff tried to be helpful but the facility is just run down. The breakfast is terrible. You are better off going to sonic.

I learned a lot about the hotel and I don't recommend staying there...at all. The prices may seem like a steal, but spend a little extra somewhere else and save yourself a bad experience. Breakfast isn't fresh whatsoever, and you're bound to feel gross after eating it. The danishes barely meet the criteria for acceptable consumption, as they can be... More

Breakfast was virtually non existent. Had to wait a quarter of an hour for coffee. The breakfast area and adjoining bathrooms were filthy. Pool not operational. WiFi in rooms not functional. No new towels in room; must call desk. Avoid.

The hotel could have been nice if had not been neglected for so long. Windows broken, tiles cracked, tub permanently stained, blankets and comforter threadbare. Breakfast was a joke, non dairy creamer and toast or day old Danishes. The exterior was quaint but in need or major overhaul. I hope the management reads this and decides to spend some money...
