“Dump!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

If you don't mind a lack of cleanliness and want a good amount of space for the price, this hotel is for you. If you do prefer a clean room, skip it. My kids feet were black after an hour of running around inside the room barefoot. Inside. Really??? And we had to attack the whole room with Clorox wipes and Lysol to feel semi-safe that we wouldn't catch something. Avoid this place like the plague... because that's what you may leave here with!

Room Tip: The suite seems to be an old 1 bedroom apart converted to a hotel room. Very spacious, with a king...

Friendly service. Switch my room when the air conditioning didn't work.

Old carpet.

Window curtains were covered in stains and substances.

In-room furniture was filthy. Chair cushions had obviously been used for 30+ years by many sweaty people. I can't only imagine what substances were caked into those chairs.

Shower had plenty of hot water and good pressure.
Bathroom was somewhat clean but tile grout was stained and broken.
Toilet took up to 3 minutes to flush.

Bath towels were the size of dish towels.

Swimming pools was heated to about 72 degrees.

This is one of the cheapest hotels in town, and it's obvious.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not have carpet. I was moved from an upstairs carpeted room to a downstairs...

For 169 dollars this was a rip off. Shabby and depressing. Sticky bathroom floor, and free continental breakfast was a joke. Hard bagels and old pastries, no cream cheese, no cream for the coffee. WOW!!!! Stay across the street at the budget and pay 69 which is what this would be worth. RIDICULOUS!

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.

I would not stay here again for the price. Its a 50 dollar a night hotel. However the man at the desk was extremely nice and helpful. The cajun restaurant was like a mels dinner it sucked.
