Perhaps the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I travel extensively for work, and I cannot think of many hotels worse than this one. I'm not a picky person, and I'm pretty easy going when it comes to problems or mess ups, but this hotel is just off the chart awful. For starters, they would not let me check into... More

The hotel has seen better days. It's whole ambience is of being worn, tired and ready for a complete refurbishment. Complimentary breakfast but nobody attended it. Coffee had run out and range of edibles was minimal.

Well I see from some of the other reviews that this is the worst place in the world to stay. I opted to stay on a blow up mattress in my van than stay here another night. It was very dirty in the rooms, we had to switch rooms on the first because the bath tub was messed up. I... More

Do not stay here the place is filthy and the service is horrible. There was stains on the sheets. Mold in the bath room. We had no hot water. Air conditioner/heater unit smelled like it was on fire. The pool was absolutely filthy. It shows a beautiful picture of a pool on the website n it was the worst place... More

Cigarette stench, strange tenants with an awkward feel. Fortunately the woman at the desk was very cordial, don't know how she put up with some of the characters I passed in the hallways. Bathroom quality was quite poor; shower did not stay on and toilet was a bit sketchy. Bed and couch were not very accommodating. Bed was solid, my... More

The wall paper was coming off, the walls were cracked, and there was a peeping hole in my room wall!!! It does not look like how they advertise it... I... More

The staff is friendly for the most part. They told us there is a continental breakfast, you get there by walking down to an old restaurant that is half tore up. They had a loaf of bread and a toaster. The hot water was practically non existent and it wasn't exactly the cleanest place. The swimming pool looked like it... More

I called this hotel to ask some questions and I wanted to speak to the manager and/or the owner. When I called to ask the person who answered the phone wanted to know why I was asking. I told her I had some questions and comments and I wanted to direct them to someone in change. She then transferred me... More

We booked online, so the pictures do not really show the nasty interior that the hotel rooms possess. You would think that for $110, you would at least get something clean, not glamorous, just clean. When we arrived in the room, we thought at first we could just rough it for one night. I jumped in the shower to get... More
