Stayed here for a few days. Around the fourth day I noticed some bites on my back. I inspected my bed and discovered bed bugs. Management said it was my fault because I hadn't complained the previous days. They said I had brought them in and refused to give a refund. Rediculous. Avoid at all costs

I was very ill. The owner made sure I was comfortable, ensuring I was in a room with a wonderful hot shower. My room was also... More

I booked this hotel online to be close to the airport (which it is) and didn't think it would be that bad. The experience we had with the hotel and staff compelled me to write this review so that other travelers think twice before they decide to stay there. At multiple points during our one night stay we debated paying... More

So for the price and good night... More

Though my fiance and I have stayed here before, this last time was the worst!!! the room we were assigned was very unsatisfactory and nasty to say the least; the floors were so filthy and nasty, the door to the room barely looked closed and was about two to three inches from the floor where bugs and element could come...

The person we booked the room with told us they had a swim pool. My husband ask the man twice and he said yes so we booked the room. We got... More

Although this hotel is a bit old, the rooms were clean. If you are looking for a place to lie your head down for the night, then this is the place. If you are looking for pampering, then this is not the place. Very close to airport and convenient to the Interstate and tourist attractions. It was just what we... More
