“Needs some work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Room is kinda musty and stinky and the door handle is a real pain, not closing from either side without double clutching it .heating and ac unit loud. I'm not that picky when traveling, but I doubt I'd stay here again. Front desk guy was nice and safe area

We were tired and needed a place to stay and should of stayed across the street. The front desk was helpful. But, the room needed help, outlets did not work and the tub shower unit needs to be replaced. From the outside it looked good.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and stay some place else

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Having a wheelchair, one thing I look for in a hotel room is handicap access with a roll in shower

Expedia offered a roll in shower at this hotel. When I get there I find out not only no roll in shower but the handicap room is so small that the wheelchair will not fit into the bathroom.

Another thing missing from this hotel is the advertised children’s pool. It has been closed and covered in cement.

The breakfast was an abundance of carbs. Breads, cereal and thawed out danish. The coffee was good and they offered three types of juice. Orange, apple and cranberry.

The property looked clean and we felt safe in the area.

If they had a proper handicap wheel chair accessible room, I would stay. Until then I’ll look for another hotel.

Room Tip: room, near the pool, is more quiet and away from highway traffic noise.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

I am really not that picky and I often let a lot slide, especially when I'm just staying at hotel overnight while on a long drive. But this place was thoroughly disgusting. There are burn holes through the bedspreads and blankets. I called for new blankets and they were very nice to quickly bring more--but both replacements were in the same horrible condition. The sheets are not deep enough to fully cover the mattresses, so you can see the huge stains running down the sides. Gag. Roaches too. I wouldn't stay here again even if it were free.
