I stayed here for 2 nights. I pulled in and parked next to, what I'm assuming, was a broken down vehicle, that appeared to have been there for a while.(Lots of snow on the roof/surrounding areas) Check-in went fine, the lady at the desk told me my room was closest to door 2. I moved my vehicle closer to that door, to find that that area of the parking lot was all ice. I walked up to door 2, only to find that it was missing the door handle! I walked to the next closest door and found my room. The room smelled very heavily of smoke. The bed was comfortable and rather large, but the entire room was dimly lit. I slept fine, woke up, showered and left for the day. Upon returning, neither of my cards worked to open the exterior doors. I walked around to the front entrance and the person at the desk gave me new keys. I asked her how to get to my room from the lobby and she directed me to the total opposite side of the hotel. I had to walk through the un-shoveled courtyard to get to my room. Stayed the night and when I went to leave, I walked out the door to my vehicle and there was a pile of dog poop right in the parking lot. The room was ok, besides the smoke smell, but the rest of the hotel was a nightmare. I will not be staying here again.
