Awful, really awful. It took an hour for me to get up from sitting at the end of the bed to get myself comfortable due to the shock of the disgusting state of the room. So I pulled the cover back from the bed and saw burn holes all over it. Then, leant on the pillows to try and get... More

Horrible. Bud bugs in all 4 rooms we had. Air conditioning didn't work, bathroom door didn't close, extremely thin walls, cigarette burns (x20) in bedspread, poor service. Left once we saw bed bugs, still haven't been credited for rooms

Gross cant describe it. Have shower shoes, and only swap with regular shoes. Allow pets but my truck dog is excellent, she looked at... More

I never write reviews but feel this is necessary to hopefully save some unsuspecting good soul from this horrible place. We went for graduation weekend and ended up at this dump because everything else was booked. We first walked in an all you could smell is a combination of cigarettes and mildew. The room I was assigned hadn't even been... More

I was needing an inexpensive room and I guess you get what you pay for. First time I have never left a tip... More

We stayed here while my wife had surgery. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and clean. I wil be staying here again in the future. It has a great location with dunkin donuts right next door and a denny's across the street.

This hotel is right of the highway (exit 35 off I-90) with alot of other hotels. The others were all booked (strange, to me) so we stayed here. The desk help was very kind but the room was disgusting! We were only going to be there for 6 hours to sleep and thought about sleeping in the car instead but... More
