“Good for the money.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Our family has stayed here more than once. Definitely not perfect but for $50 a night, worth it. The pool has 50% of the time been open and definitely not heated. Breakfast is so-so but kids were happy with cereal and muffins. Rooms look nice but not always clean. Staff is happy to move you though if you aren't satisfied. You get what you pay for. We would stay again due to location, price and amenities.

Stayed April 2013

This hotel was a great deal for the money, no hotel around can beat this price with a pool inside. The lady at the front desk was very helpful, she went above and beyond her job when I asked her to print out my airline ticket.

This "hotel" had nothing too exciting to offer. The pool is very small, the halls are dirty, and the breakfast is less than impressive. On the other hand, we were wanting a cheap place to sleep and shower and this was it! The rooms aren't too bad, just think if someone were to take a tiny bit of time on cleaning the place up, it could really improve the look.

I would never go back to this hotel. There was hair on the bathroom floor, the bathtub was stained with dirt, soap dispensers were empty, hall ways smelled like pee. Priceline said there would be wifi in the room and there wasn't, neither the hotel or priceline helped to fix this or give me a refund. I thought it would be an ok hotel since they just renovated but instead it was horrid. Spend $10 more and stay some where better.

Smelled like a chimney in the NON smoking section, which is in the very back of the hotel and wifi didn't reach, and had to walk a LONG way to get breakfast. No maid service the whole time, WITH the "service requested" sign on the door. I even told the front desk, and spoke to a maid, still was not done when we got back at 10:00 that night. Outside doors were propped open at night, and there were scary looking men walking around the hotel.
Pros: comfy bed, decent breakfast, location.

The bathroom was disgusting. Tub was stained or not scrubbed well. A gray film was all over the bottom of the tub, and rust around the drain hole. There were insects on the bathroom floor and in the tub. Also inside the tub were hairs. The room was not cleaned very thoroughly. Next to the bed was an old bottle of hair Mouse. And laying next to the air conditioner was someone's fake acrylic nail that had fallen off their finger. I am very disgusted.
