Quite a variety for the continental breakfast and the staff was very friendly and helpful .

This hotel is situated in an old strip mall. It appears to be a not so desirable part of town. I purchased room on hotwire (they had it as 3 star hotel.. ha that was a joke and not a very funny one!). When i walked into room there was a balled up tissue laying next to one of the... More

First, the good news: The hotel is convenient to I-75, is clean, and is staffed by helpful, friendly people. The hotel is older, and while it has been fairly well-maintained, its age is showing. It is located in an abandoned strip mall, and seems shoe-horned into the space. Felt a bit sketchy at night. Our room was quite clean, and... More

Older building in an abandoned strip mall. Parking situation was a pain. Check in was quick, but not welcoming or personable. Rooms were clean enough, but furniture is worn and needs replacing. Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. No outlets convenient to the bed for phones, etc to be plugged in. Definitely need to invest in lamps with... More

The location setting should be the first sign to not stop here. The parking lot and front entry is dark and dirty. It matches the inside when you walk in and are at the reservation desk. The clerk was friendly. Nothing and no where was clean from the elevator to the room. This place was not worth the rate charged.

This is an older building that appeared to be in pretty fair condition. It looked like it might have been built in the 1960s or early 70s. We arrived after dark. The hotel is located in an isolated area. This caused us some concern. Most of the hotel is not visible from the passing road. The hotel is situated off... More

The Hotel sits in a desolate parking lot that is not very easy to get in and out of. The desk clerk didn't really want to hang up her personal call to greet us but finally did. No Priority Member "goodies" were given to us. I heard noise all night. Now for the good part. There was a man working... More

This hotel looks like it was converted from some other use. The cinder block walls are indicative. It is clean and comfortable; we had a pleasant sleep. The free breakfast was very good and fresh. We were really impressed with perhaps the best staff we have encountered in our snowbird travels. They responded to a minor mishap in our room... More
