The room looked ok at first upon inspection, the bedspread had been burned, the wall had apparently had dirty fingers on it never wiped off, also a fist threw it and patched. The bathroom not bad, but above the tub water facets the tile was gone I took a towel and plugged it. The outside door to the parking lot... More

I'm not one to pick apart a motel. If I get a clean room, i'm happy. I got a clean room. Overall, I did rate this a 3, average for what you pay for. It was quiet. I didn't really see any marking that it was a ABVI, it used to be a Ramada Inn, as I thought and asked.... More

When you walk in you'll regret what you've done immediately!!! If I want to be surrounded in dust I'll stay home. And the restaurant they advertise looks like it's been closed down for a year! Not that you'd want to eat anything that's been made here. We chose this hotel because it had an outdoor pool and in the middle... More

I would definitely never stay at this hotel again. It is very run down and in need of a major overhaul. The restaurant is closed down, and is disgusting to look at. The hotel lobby was dark and dingy and had a horrible musty smell to it. There are a few old video games tucked here and there, half of... More

Lights in the room all unplugged, had to search around in dark to plug them in. Room service never serviced our room, air conditioning went out in our room, Manager rude and not sorry and or accomodating. We stayed 2 nights... More

Where do I even begin..? So, let's start with how misleading they are. The lobby looks nice and clean at first ☺️ then they say SIKE and you walk down the hallway that turns into the scene of a horror movie. Let's talk rooms! They are small af. There were STAINS on the bed, hair on the blankets, the plumbing... More

First off, let me be clear that I am very laid back when it comes to hotels. I completely understand that "you get what you pay for" isn't just a cliche thing to say. If the shower is clean and the beds are clean, I'm content. Besides, I like to spend as little time in the room as possible... With... More

To start off the hotel over charged my account by $1100. Then when we wanted to talk to the manager, Julie Washburn was not there. We ask that she would call us cause we had busy to take care of and could not be there when she would be in. She did not call us, we cut our plans short... More

This hotel was not clean, wifi is not work, breakfast consisted of coffee and walmart muffins. The pool was not sanitized. And when we arrived from a day out our room was open. I have stayed in some creepy places but this one takes the cake.... Recommend you find another place to stay even if you pay more.

Mold and a small mushroom was growing by the window. It's pretty obvious the maids make the beds and that's all the clean. My wife woke up with a swollen face filled with red patches, it had to be the mold. STAY AWAY for your own good!

I'm sorry to hear that your stay didn't meet all of your expectations. Although this property is marketed toward the budget-conscience traveler, there's no reason to expect anything less that clean, comfortable, and safe accommodations.
