“Run!!! Bad area!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We were to stay Here. Went to check in. Staff is personality-less, hotel in BAD AREA, scary place. They boast dog friendly and ARE NOT. We cancelled our reservation and got the heck out of there. There are many other hotels in area. Find a different one that is in a safe area. This place is seriously scary.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Our experience was quite different from that described by the traveler from Sedona. The hotel is older (when was the last time you came across a Howard Johnson's?!) but more than serviceable and above all clean. The bathroom and vanity areas were immaculate and the linens were fine. The price is right (order online for best rate). Very friendly front desk staff as well. If you stay, don't miss the great food at the Puerto Rican restaurant located across the street.

Stayed February 2013, traveled with family
