Keep driving and find another hotel. I got in late and was really tired. I was trying to get on the internet as they advertise free wifi. Couldn't get online for more than a minute at a time. Then I noticed things moving on the desk I was sitting at. Ants! Just what I need to deal with. Front office... More

This hotel is very easy to find. It is right off the exit. We found it very comfortable. The rooms were good size and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were soft. Much better then your average hotel. The towels were even much better then most hotels. When we were getting settled in, we were able to... More

Internet service took several minutes to come on, and disappeared when I was away from the computer for 5 minutes. In the morning the Internet wasn't even available for hours. I had a 1st floor room in the C building, which I had requested to be near the laundry. (Washers and dryers were fairly clean and worked. Housekeeping kindly brought... More

Spent the last week of June staying here. As far as the hotel goes I guess it worked for what we wanted but it was a kinda strange place. The elevator stunk bad! There is no lock on the outside doors to the hallway to the rooms. No security at all. It says you have to swipe your key but... More

We had a long drive from FL and every place we usually stay was booked. There were Clarion/Quality Inn signs, so we weren't sure which it was. The room smelled of cigarette smoke and was dark. The refrigerator was missing, so my husband went to the ice machine to get ice to keep our insulin cold, and the machine was... More

Stayed here for a night during a basketball tournament (the tournament had some deal with the hotel for $59/night) I was a little leery of staying here after talking with someone who had stayed the previous night, but was pleasantly surprised that everything was pretty good overall. No issues with the room, staff was friendly and helpful, check-in was fast.... More

We had a non smoking room that smelled terrible. At first we had thought it was a smoking room by mistake. Out side on the balcony was a soda can that was used as an ashtray. I am not sure how long it had been there, but was not cleaned during the few days we were there. The balcony would... More

There was nothing special about this place. They do have a new restaurant that is a second location for Nacho Mama's. The hotel was full for a wedding and we did not have any noise problems nor complaints. The room did what we needed it to do. We had a pleasant stay
