Hotel was run down and in desperate need of remodeling. Sheets looked dirty, mold in bathroom, and the carpet was filthy. Consider sleeping in your car instead of staying here!

This, to me, was a great value for the money and area. The Comfort Inn across the street was double the price, if that gives you some perspective. There were some very minor inconvenient things: a missing towel rack on the sink outside the bathroom (it had one side's holder still in place), the mount for the shower sprayer was... More

We stayed here before and thought it was a good enough value to return. WRONG!!! It must be under new ownership, because the changes are dramatic and negative.

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Garbage thrown in between the buildings. Dog poop all over the yard near the play area. Room smelt like cigarets and mold. Tile floor was greasy and slippery. Shower was dirty. Towel rack had hair and dust on it. I strongly advise you sleep in your car or... More
