For the price (cheapest on line) it was okay for a couple of nights. It is outdated, saggy mattress, not enough wall outlets, microwave did not work and my wife said she say blood spatters on the bathroom wall. I couldn't tell for sure whether it was blood spatter or something else. Staff was courteous and the breakfast was what... More

We were forced to stay here because we came for a last minute trip and it was one of the only hotels that still had a room available. The room is very old and stunk. They put us in a smoking room, which I never would have picked. The room obviously smelled like an ash tray and the blankets had... More

This place charged 150 dollars for one night and it is a completely awful motel. The bathtub had burn holes in it and it said non smoking when we booked it but we were clearly given a smoking room. The TV and fridge were wired to a switch so the fridge wasn't even cold when we got there. I have... More

I've been in my room for less than 15 minutes and am ready to leave. I will be requesting a different hotel from my company tomorrow. The bed is hard as a rock, furniture stained and dirty, carpet is ripped, and the walls are dirty. This place is filthy.

The towels were too short, the room wreaked of smoke and the pillows felt like a block of wood (woke with a neck cramp I still can't get rid of 3 days later). Will not stay here again.

Location was excellent for touring presidential homes in area. Construction next door is a distraction.

One whole wing (two hallways, two levels) of smoking rooms. Absolutely horrible. Could not even breath in the room, let alone relax. Even after airing out the room for an hour it was intolerable. I live with a smoker ... that's not the issue. They refused to refund me (Expidia's fault), but i was bad enough that I switched hotels... More
