I got this property "by accident" from one of the discount rate sites who admitted their error in misquoting this property as 2.5 stars (they later kindly refunded my money). I gave this motel (it's not a hotel) 3 tries to change my room to something vaguely livable. I did not enter any of the rooms until the shady people... More

The rooms are outdated with stained carpets. We checked into one king bed room and the TV wouldn't work, was told staff would come up to fix it and 30 min later when asking again we were told "Oh they went home" and offered no other help until I got upset. Then offered another room. We looked at 2 room,... More

After desperately looking for a place to stay (one that would not break the bank) a friend helped us find this place. The first impression of this place was terrible. Upon arrival there was a pile of trash next to the front lobby. Needless to say, that leaves a bad impression. People loitering and smoking outside added o the feeling... More

Then they have murder in a corner room.... More

We stayed in this hotel due to their affordable rates and the fact they had free continental breakfast and an indoor pool. Neither lived up to standard expectations. The pool was a mustardy green color that we chose not to use. The hot tub was loaded with chlorine and burned our eyes. The continental breakfast was a row of white... More

A series of interesting events led us to need a hotel at the last minute and fairly late at night. Our options were extremely limited, as every other hotel we tried was fully booked. Some pro's: it was inexpensive, a decent location for us, and the incredibly overworked lady at the front desk managed to be nice to every one... More

We have stayed at a King Oscar before and had always said if we are ever in the area of one again that would be the place to stay. We had hoped to stay in the one where we previously stayed but due to them being bought out by Days Inn, it was a little out of our price range,... More
