Can't even tell you what kind of bug was in the room. The bathroom disgusting. I think I even slept in my clothes. This place is horrible, wondering who the are paying off, to stay in business. As for the parking lot, nothing but the drunks from the bar hanging out there. Hope you don't have a nice vehicle. Please... More

BEWARE!!! absolutely disgusting!! The bathroom was not cleaned and the carpet was not even vacuumed. Certain bodily fluid stains all over the room. The place should be shut down. The pool looked to be the only bearable thing, but I wouldn't risk it after seeing everything else. Paid $100 for the room to end up at splash lagoon for $140.... More

The first red flag at this place was when we were checking in. There were several strange people just loitering around. We went up to our room and within 5 seconds had to kill about 4 spiders that were hanging from the drop ceiling. Our kids were immediately freaked out. The smell of stale cigarettes and cheap air freshener was... More

The place is very outdated. Our room had a very musty smell, dark and just distusting. There were only 2 lights that worked in the room. The TV was an old large unit in a cabinet and the remote did not work at all. The cabinet the tv was sitting on was missing a drawer. We did not have a... More

The staff was ignorant and unwilling to help me get clean towels, people are just as trashy as this place. The rooms are disgusting--should have looked at the reviews on here before staying! I will never stay here ever again.

We were able to upgrade our room which was a good thing, but the price was a little high....Ok...the good: whirlpool tub was awsome, microwave, flat screen, fridge, nice cold AC, double shower with HOT water and the location were a definite plus! The bad: musty room smell, stained comforter and sheets, parking was horrible, loud partiers and loud noises... More

I wouldn't recommend this hotel. It smells terribly, room was tiny, nothing was up to date, and our shower wouldn't turn on. Went to check out the next day and told him we had a bad experience, and wouldn't even give some money back due to the shower not working. Deff won't be staying here again.

And I got it! Watch what you wish for is the moral here folks. With tax $44 and change. Worth about $27.59....maybe Stairway smelled of urine. Bed was not good. The room was clean. I'll give them that much.

Do not be fooled by the outside. Came a day early so decided to stay here for one night. Worst idea ever! Holes in the walls. Stairs to rooms falling apart. No covers to lights. The smoke alarm was on top of the tv stand without a battery in it. Did not take our shoes off and walk on the... More

Don't be fooled by the pictures on the website. From the outside and the pool, El Patio, doesn't look bad, looks throw back, which has the potential to be really fun. However, the inside was another story. We were on the second floor. The bathroom window was up when we went in, with no screen. We didn't need the AC,... More
