We stopped, paid our money, went to the room, and OMG! You cannot get your money back so don't even try. This place is supposedly under surveillance at all times for drug deals and WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE!

This place looked great in the main office, the staff was nice and friendly! Even gave me a discount because my family and I got into town so late and needed a hotel...however, when we got into our room we were really disappointed. Everything was dirty, the carpet in the room was sticky, the toilet made this loud noise the... More

It sure isn't fancy, but it wasn't a bad experience. The neighborhood and the clientele leave a lot to be desired, but the fact that we got a clean bed with a working shower and AC for what I paid was a miracle. I booked 2 nights on Travelocity using a coupon and ended up paying $74 with tax. That's... More

Management of this property is completely screwed! They had a police sting/take down in the parking lot. Management comes up with petty things to yell yes literally yell at you about even before asking you your aide or perspective. They will create rules if they don't like the way you do things. They also don't allow guests to congregate or... More

We were told by one of the cops that was doing a drug bust in the parking lot not to stay at this hotel and we took his advice! Not worth the low price at all. I don't think this hotel is in a good part of town.. a lot of drug addicts. Pay a little more and go some... More

Entrance is deceiving! Lobby looks great and the front looks like a decent hotel & when they give you a key they tell you to go to the second building at the back! Wait what? Back building is old rundown and smells horrible. Nothing like the front. Not even worth it for the low price. I stayed at many hotels... More

Not a pleasant stay! The place looks like it was crawling with drug addicts, dirty floors, very few towels, a little afraid to sleep, contact noise. Don't think I will return. People at the front desk didn't seem to concerned.

Management took 20 minutes to answer a complaint about loud music. When I was out for a smoke, there was one room where gay men were coming in and out by the dozen. Management was HIGHLY RUDE when these complaints were brought up. She offered no sort of refund. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GHETTO HOTEL!!!!!

Dear mlh53057, Hello again! You and I have actually talked to each other back in February! I believe we came to an agreement of resolution to your situation. However, I failed to reply to this online review and I apologize to you. You are a very nice person and we have confronted the front desk clerk that was on duty... More
