Not actually pet friendly. The guy at the counter was rude and cranky. The room was gross. One of the dresser drawers were broken. Dusty. Awful awful awful. We left immediately and stayed at the motel 6 down the street, MUCH better for a one night stay

This is the worst Choice Hotel's MOTEL I've ever stayed in, its a dump. Choice should not have its name on this hotel. I'm a Platinum traveler and this hotel does them NO justice at all. Its A DUMP! I don't smoke, but I was given a smoking room. I went up to ask for a non-smoking room but was... More

Stincky, barely clean. A smoky smell, dirty bathroom and dusty carpet. The first room I was given has a c... on the handle. And that for around 80$. Avoid it. Everything else was booked, even this one was quite full.

As I stepped into the room the smell was horrible. My kids were so excited to be on vacation I didn't want to ruin it but I knew I could not stay there, my husband ran out to get the boys some food and I stayed in the room to make an inspection.... First the bed. There was a faint... More

Unfit, bugs in beds, dressers, on walls. Carpet had drywall slabs placed into missing areas in walking path to bathroom, not vacuumed for days as crap was along bedspread lines on floor. Run away! Can't even relive the gross bathroom -get ill thinking about the conditions!

I am not a fussy traveller. I am used to staying in rodeway inns and econolodges, and other budget hotels; but this one really needed a little TLC. Check-in: arrived at about 1:00am. Staff member was on the phone with a personal call. Seemed annoyed to be interrupted. Process was quick but staff was a little rude and unfriendly. Room:... More

Got here late at night and we should have known to move on by the smell in the lobby... At first he gave us a smoking room and it wasn't until I made up a story about being allergic to cigarette smoke that he magically found a non smoking room. The chain lock on the door had been broken off,... More

This was by far the worst hotel we have ever walked into, when Jeffrey and I walked into our room we noticed right away that the chair was broken. This got our attention so we inspected further, we then noticed the phone didn't work, the TV was black and white and no remote, the bathroom was filthy. The toilet had... More

I stayed in this hotel with my family this past weekend. We rented two rooms and didn't have any issues with bugs as other reviewers have mentioned. The bathroom left a bit to be desired. It wasn't dirty so much as old. We were only given one bottle of shampoo (for three people) in our room, but they were happy... More
