“Worst Hotel Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We had to stay there a week due to our power being out. Someone urinated in the hall. Most of the interior lights were out in hall. Not a safe place. The first day I almost put my hand in the mouse trap behind the trash. I called for more Shampoo and never received any. The shower had cold water. I went to the front desk and asked to exchange my dirty towels and the woman told me to go find a maid. As I was walking back to my room a drunk man followed me and asked for money. My Husband had to make him leave. There was fighting in the hall during the day. On our last day a man stopped us in the parking lot and asked for money. The pool was closed, the pool tables were broken, the arcade was off and it was freezing in the entire building. I will never go back again. My Husband did say there was 1 nice woman working there named Tracy but that would be the only positive thing I can say.

I apologize for the discomfort and unhappiness you and your husband experienced in our hotel. I am just taking over as Assistant Manager, and I am trying my best to implement some changes throughout the hotel. In regards ti your review, I am taking it as a challenge I plan to take head on, among others. If you have any plans of giving us another chance to give you and your husband a comfortable stay, please do not hesitate.

If you are looking for a clean place but not spend a lot of money. This is one of those places. The staff is very nice n polite also. They offer a continental breakfast that is not anything to write home about. It will tide you over til lunch.

The pluses: Close to interstate, very inexpensive rate. Pleasant staff. Very nice security guard.

Negatives: Dead bugs laying around in the room and on vanity. Dirty bathroom floor. Water leaks from the ceiling. Kleenex box stuffed with dirty tissues. Bathroom vanity needs to be replaced. It is very water damaged. There is a HUGE gap between the wall and vanity. Large amounts of caulking have been haphazardly applied over and over, on top of each other. Result: An ugly mess. Seriously? This establishment really needs some attention to bring it up to acceptable. Whoever is in charge of maintenance/repairs obviously does not know what they are doing and doesn't care.

Additionally,there were some very dubious individuals hanging around outside, and going in and out of the guest rooms. It makes one wonder. Just sayin'.

I cannot recommend staying here to anyone. The owner/s need to step up to the plate and be a responsible innkeeper. It's unfortunate.

It's not the Marriott, but I would go back for the friendly service and convenience in location.

During your several week stay here you made no complaints after the first night. The first night you were moved and given a discounted rate which was honored your entire stay. We would have happily taken care of any problem you had if it had been brought to our attention.

If you want a place that is cheap in every sense of the word, this is the place. The AC in the lobby was out when I was there, the pool heater does not work, and it appears to be a health hazard on many levels... but.. it is cheap. way cheap.

Room Tip: No help here... they are all equal in quality it seems to me.

We cannot verify this complaint at all since we do not have any information about what room number they were in or their name. We treat this as a false and bogus claim.
