“Not first choice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Traveling home from a weekend needed a place to stop for the night to get some shut eye, it was noisy, dingy smelling, afraid to touch things jerm wise, was very dissatisfied will not stay here ever again for sure. This hotel is in bad need of a remodel and for the price you pay and the quality they should be able to afford that upgrade!!!!

One of those places you see in horror films!!!! We were terrified to stay here!! The lock didn't work on the door, there were holes in the bathroom, dirt/makeup/unidentified substances in the bathroom. Could probably rent by the hour. NEVER WOULD RECOMMEND FOR ANYONE!!! The place stunk horribly, we heard screaming and other noises all night long outside our room, which was by the overflowing dumpster. What a joke!!!

We apologize that you were not happy with your stay, this is the first time we have ever been told we belong in a horror film. We try extremely hard to provide a quality room and quality service to everyone but it is difficult to be perfect. Nearly all of our guests are very happy with our property but unfortunately people don't always leave reviews when they are happy. Please accept our sincere apologies for your unpleasant stay and be assured that we are always trying to improve.

Clean. Slow at the check-in for some reason. A bit noisy. The check-in clerk is behind the thickest bullet-proof "glass" I have ever seen -- must have been 1.25" or so. Does not make for cozy feelings but the area really seems safe enough. Room was OK. No remote for TV but I did not really care.

I stayed there 1 night with my fellow beta club members on our end of the year trip. This hotel made everything aweful! The service was ok but it wasn't the best ever. I guess they were renavating but the workers were drunk! They were going around knocking on doors with 6th graders in them! Needless to say we were all very scared! The toilet wouldn't flush,the shower was so filthy we decided to wear shoes! The air system wouldn't work and we found mens boots under our bed! Overall I was very upset with this hotel! Don't book your stay there!!!

We are very sorry to hear that you were not happy with your stay. We wish you would have made management aware of the issues during your stay so we could have addressed the problems right away. The person found knocking on doors and drunk in the corridors was found later to be a guest of the hotel not a renovation worker. Our renovation workers did not stay here at the hotel and were never permitted to drink here. We would have requested that the drunk guest either go back to his room or leave the facility if we would have received your complaint at that point. Again, we apologize for your dissatisfaction during your stay.

I stayed for one night in March at a rate of $50+tax, but when I checked my bank statement a week later they had charged me $103. I called them about it Kim told me her manager wouldn't be in until the following Friday, but not to worry because "this happens all the time" and the manager could fix it no problem.
When I called back a week later the manager politely told me that their records indicated I had stayed for two nights, and there was nothing she could do unless I could prove otherwise. The only proof I had at this point was a receipt from the hotel I stayed in the night she claims I was there, but that doesn't really prove anything.
Basically what it boils down to is that I got screwed out of $50 and there isn't much I can do about it. Stay Away From This Place!

  • Liked — The rate would've been good but they charged me Twice.
  • Disliked — They charged me for two nights when I only stayed one.
