“Location yes, quality no!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Picked this hotel because it was the closest to a business appointment in an area known for challenging traffic conditions during morning rush hour! Older motel in dire need of renovation. The only positive attribute is the room was quiet, well off the road. The public area was acceptable but the hall leading to rooms had missing baseboards hitting at the disrepair which followed once inside the room. Im no Howie Mandell, famous for ordering extra towells and covering the carpet of his hotel rooms. But in this case it would have been prudent and well advised to do so! The carpet just inside the door was soaked with filthy brown water either from the small in room refridgerator or from the hot water pipe in the bathroom sink which had been turned off probably the sourse of the water. Of corse i discovered this fact after i took my shoes off while preparing for bed...i through my formerly white socks away, then covered the carpet with the bath mat and towels. I should have changed rooms but it was late and i had already undressed. The walls of the room desparately needed painting and patching. The shower head was loose but had good pressure and hot water, unlike the sink. The TV worked and the bed reasonably comfortable and appeared clean. Upon checking out the desk clerk was informed
Of the wet carpet, but seemed unconcerned and made no comment, not even a thanks or offer to report it. For $90 a night, you could do much better than this DUMP! Lots of other chipoices and next time i will spend a little more effot finding a better choice.

First impression: As soon as I walked in I smelled stale cigarette smoke (maybe from the bar located RIGHT inside the lobby doors) and the lobby didn't look like it was kept up. I booked this hotel on one of those travel sites, we booked 2 rooms with doubles beds (Our family of 8 needed more space) and upon check in learned that there was a mistake and only 1 of our rooms was double beds. The front desk couldn't do anything about if except charge us $10 for a roll away since we had already paid for our room online. The Travel site couldn't help either. That was frustrating! BUT, the room was not very clean, and the bathroom was a freaking nightmare! I CAN NOT stand dirty, hair laden floors in bathrooms!! It's gross and I was traveling with small children. The reviews online were FAR different than what I had experienced while there! Save yourself the time and money and stay somewhere else that's clean!!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

Let me first start off by apologizing that your stay was not up to a reasonable standard. I am in the process of addressing all of your concerns, with the team. We will be doing some retraining with the team to ensure that we handle all situations a little better. The hotel brought in a new Management company, earlier this month; however, we will not make any excuses, for not meeting your expectations. We generally do a much better job, taking care of our guest. I do sincerely hope that you will give us another opportunity to show you stellar service. We take your comments very seriously and will make the necessary corrections. Thank you for taking the time to let us know where we need to continue to grow. I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Sincerely,
Andre Tyler
General Manager
