They are cheap and do make the beds and change the towels. That is about the best thing I can say. The building is coming apart on the outside as well as the inside. There is mold and or mildew in the room we were assigned. I am guessing our room is not an isolated incident. The beds need replaced.

Inexpensive place with pool, light breakfast. No frills, but everything is here. Onsite casino, bar and pool. Lots of dining & shoping options available within short walk. Rooms are spartan, free breakfast is limited ( coffee, toaster & doughnuts). You want a lot of extras, look elsewhere.

It was cheap and convenient. It was a little scary at night, people were leaving the lounge and were very intoxicated then driving away, scary to be on the road. It smelled of stale cigarettes even thought it was a non smoking room.nwe did meet some great people in the pool and hot tub. The pool and hot tub were... More

Don't like giving bad reviews. I know the Inn is old so I did take that into consideration and the staff were nice. It has a Pool and Hot Tub which is also nice. However bottom line is I stayed there to sleep and found the Beds very uncomfortable and the Pillows very poor quality and uncomfortable. I woke up... More

First got here it looked a little run down but, not bad, TV didn't work, no fan in bathroom, front desk person was very rude, and on her phone the whole time. This is by far the worst hotel stay I've ever had.

I wish I had known about tripadvisor before booking the room. Upon entering my room I couldn't help but notice a dank, musty odor. I then noticed that the windows open into the hall and not the outside, so I opened my window and went to the hall to see if I could open those. I could not. The odor... More

Upon entering my room I reached to turn on the switch on the table lamp, the electrical socket was hanging loose, luckily I avoided getting an electrical shock. Also, the twin light set between the beds was on the blink and could not be turned on, which the desk person ignored. I attempted to use the room telephone and consistently... More

We were displaced due to a fire that destroyed our apt. This place is nasty as well as the staff....holes in the walls, coaxial for the cable was smashed into the wall. Bathroom tub is gross, continental breakfast is just cereal.... waited for clerk to return to the front desk for 15 minutes just to re-activate our room key cards.... More

By far, this is the WORST hotel I have ever stayed at. Old is fine, but it can still be clean. My counch was stained & ripped, bed had hair in it, pillows were sweat stained! I called the front desk to request new sheets & all I was told was to "roll them up & throw them in a... More

I have stayed in cheaper hotels with friends than this one. This place had dirt and dust in all sort of places. It looks like the cleaning service never even cleaned. The bed spread smelled of (edit). The noise after 2am was louder than sleeping on a 747.
