Although the location was in a neighborhood that had many empty stores, this hotel is a great place to stay. The 1st room was causing my husband's eyes to water so we figured a previous someone had snuck a dog in it. The night manager immediately found another great room and let us sit in it for a while before... More

We stayed here Friday, March 13. Check-in at 1230 am went smooth. As soon as we entered the room, we found the window covered in heavy condensation with water dripping onto the carpet. This didn't affect our stay, though. Breakfast was not great. The only fruit available was inedible, green bananas. Danishes came from Sam's club. Eggs were soggy, but... More

I was leary at first because of the cheap price, but was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, and smelled clean. Linens were in good condition. The free breakfast wasn't bad, it was free. Would stay there again.

We were driving through and needed a hotel late at night. Picked this one because it had hot breakfast and the first three we checked were full. What a nice surprise. Clean. Friendly service. Big room. Good breakfast. Price was very reasonable and Ronnie, the mgr on duty, was very nice. Two thumbs up from my family.

It may appear a little shabby on the outside but the inside is clean and smells fresh. The room was very large and clean. The bed was really comfortable and the mattress was new. The hot southern breakfast was popular and there was a limited number of cold items.

I should have asked the name of the manager, because he was just the best. In fact, I am rating this "very good" not because there weren't problems, but because he went out of his way to try to solve them for me. I was staying in a handicap accessible room that was too close to the elevator on the... More

This is our second visit here; the first was sometime last year... a few months after they opened. It was fantastic then. After reading the reviews, we were skeptical of the "rodent poops". We stayed on the third floor and all I can say is that you need to vacuum the back of the beds by the headboards because there... More

This is a converted Holiday Inn Express. We were traveling to Florida and just decided to stop and get a hotel. Booked it on hotels.com from our phone. Front desk staff was amazing. My wife wasn't feeling well and they got her some hot tea. Breakfast was great (sausage and gravy, waffles, and full continental). Room was pretty standard. Clean....and... More

The first room I was given had rat poop in both beds. When I called the front desk it was apparently they were not surprised. They moved me to another room. 30 minutes after I turned everything off and settled into bed the rodents started scratching and running in the walls. I got NO REST!! I asked to speak to... More
