“Terrible!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

sheets had many holes, the whole place was muggy and sticky, the air conditioning in our second floor room didnt work, they told us to try the room next door but it didnt have working ac either. so the night staff was nice and helpful, brought us a fan to put in the window, but in the morning we dealt with the manager, she said there had never been complaints from that room and that it was cool enough outside...only gave us a 10 dollar off, which didnt even cover tax...she wouldnt listen to us when we went to check out and asked if they were going to fix the ac...just looked down and said thank you dears, thank you dears like she didnt know how to say anything else. not worth our money!!! stay at the hampton inn right next to it!!

Excellent customer service. A no frills hotel, great for a short stay. Only two complaints; there was no microwave in the breakfast area. The microwave was located in the laundry room. Also, there were few convenient electrical outlets in the room to charge personal items. Other than that, a nice stay.

Looks like it will be a great place after the remodeling is complete. Stayed there in early June. Rooms should be bigger than average and hope they get new furniture. The bed was very comfortable but didn't match tables or desk. Good wifi in room, quiet. Breakfast ok but all the construction was a downer. Always seemed to wait for the elevator but that beats the stairs.

Hotel was under renovation when I checked in; seems like they are going for a modern look. Hotel is close enough to restaurants and gas station too. Staff was friendly and rooms were decent.
