In the first room we walked into a soaking wet carpet and a strong mold smell took our breath away. A beer bottle cap, someone's state ID, a lack of towels, lack of coffee pot and a filthy bathroom rounded out that cess pool of a room.

Breakfast, not Good. Room... More

I checked in this hotel twice. The first time, the lady at the front desk was reading the newspaper and didn't even acknowledge me when I checked in. The carpet was old and dirty and had a slight odor. This first time was a one night stay, so I didn't make any complaints. My second stay was a reservation for... More
