This was the nastiest place I have ever been to. Out dated and dirty. Bed bugs under the covers and had cockroaches in frig and bathroom. I was terrified to stay but luckily the manager gave money back. Blamed the filth on the trail hikers. The wifi did not work. The pool was not operational. Linen smelled horrific. I felt... More

We decided to stay here spur of the moment and ended up leaving. The office staff is very unprofessional, the hotel reminded me of a scary movie. Our room obviously had not been cleaned: there was still hair in the sink, hair on the walls, bathtub was filthy, blinds were dirty and broken, everything was very dusty, sheets were dirty,... More

This place was disgusting. There were roaches everywhere, crawling in and out of the walls. The blinds were all tore and people could see in. It seriously looked like a crack head, druggie motel from a bad movie. We booked on Travelocity. Won't make that mistake again! We tryed to get our money back but couldn't so we had to... More

We did not expect to go out of town and did. We pick this hotel by it's inviting quote that was at the top. Me and my family appreciated the homely feel and wonderful service, I love walking in the lobby because it was so warm and peaceful. This trip brought my family closer and more appreciated.

DO NOT STAY HERE!! This is by far the nastiest place I have ever been! Don't go by the websites pictures. The beautiful pool has nothing but a small amount of green water in the bottom. The rooms was horrible and they were suppose to be the owners suite and honeymoon suite. No toilet paper in the bathrooms and the... More

Don't stay here... I'm going to have to burn everything I brought. The dirtiest hotel room I've ever seen. Roaches in the bathroom. Disgusting. The guy at the front desk overcharged us after getting a quote on the phone it ended up being well over our discussed price.

The office was nice. A so called "christian" man rented us a room. My first impression was that it was a cozy gatinburg setting. O boy was I wrong. Our stay ended with fighting roaches & came home only to make Dr appointments to get rid of bed bugs & treat our many bed bug bites. Our vacation was ruined.... More

Hotel does need a major make over replacing some things to freshen up but its still a decent hotel close to downtown. The pool was not open for the season at the time we stayed. The staff there is very nice and observant of what goes on. We felt safe at all times. Will definitely stay here again.
