Oh my! ☆☆☆?... Not even close. The whole place smells like a cross between rotten eggs & sewer gas. The young girl at the front desk was excellent and very helpful. The room appears to have been redone recently and was OK for the night. The whole place just feels old and dingy.

Older hotel that needs more updating. The bed was hard and uncomfortable. I woke up with hip and back pain. The curtain hung over the air conditioner unit partially blocking the blowing air so the room did not cool very well. I ended up draping the curtain over the floor lamp shape to help get better circulation. The tv had... More

This place is disgusting!!!! I had to write a review b/c it's rating is too high and I want to save others from experiencing the anguish I was subjected to from staying there. Boogers on the wall, funky smells in the hotel, hair under the sheets, balls of hair in the "pool swamp", white stains on the furniture that were... More

My family attempted to stay at this hotel for a one night get away. We booked the room on a website I will refuse to mention. Upon arrival my wife was checking in while I and my son decided to check out the pool. At the pool we found the spa was closed with caution tape wrapped around it and... More

This hotel has had better days. It's old and out of date. It would take several million to get this hotel to it's glory days. The mattresses are old and worn out.

The 2013 upgrades to the hotel must have been furniture not much else. The stinch in the lobby was overwhelming upon arrival! One of the two elevators stayed broken 3 out of the 4 nights we were there making wait times very long. The sheets were old and the pillows were less than acceptable. I suggest you bring your own...

As soon as you entered the building there was a very unpleasant smell that carried throughout the hotel. Our room was nice and the bed was really comfortable. There was trash and crumbs on the floor around the trash can. The shower/bath was really dated, and there was very little water pressure. Check in was really easy. The next morning... More

I was concerned by the outward appearance of the hotel when I drove up, and there is a strange, strong odor in the lobby. However, the rooms are fairly clean. The bathroom is dark but adequate. The decor is modern. I found the mattress acceptable but not overly comfortable, and the bedding is thin. Would I stay here again? Maybe,... More

It is obvious this property is tired. They are working to provide upgrades and the room wasn't bad. The windows were filthy on the outside and looked like they weren't sealed. This former Holiday Inn lost it's badge and must do something to regain it or drop down to independent status as it is now. I've stayed here occasionally since... More
