“Yuck! Never Again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

This place was a last minute check in for us for one night only. It was like off the Twilight Zone! We payed $237 with tax and would have rather slept in the car. We slept on top of the covers and used our own blankets, didn't even shower and hardly wanted to sit on toilet seat. Everything was nasty!! Never again!! Plus was skeptical of the staff:(

Room Tip: Don't do it!

Let me start by saying this is the worst hotel I've ever stayed! The building is extremely old and infested with roaches! They were in the shower above my head, coming from cracks in the walls and floors in the bedroom. We couldn't sleep at night because every time we would turn off the lights they would come from everywhere. There were leaks all over the hotel. The curtains were mildewed! The office closed completely down at night and no one is available for assistance! And NO REFUND is given for any reason at all! Don't stay here at all. The rooms are cheap but you will pay in different ways.... Never again room 338 (hell)

Room Tip: This property is managed by a management group and is individually owned by different people. Amenit...
