1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This was the worst hotel stay I have ever experienced. Drains did not work, room was filthy. There was a big blood stain on the box spring. Linen and towels were dirty. Floor was stained and dirty. No restaurants (or anything nearby). Saw a small cockroach in the bathroom. Mold spots on the ceiling. Moldy smell. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!

They could not find my reservation - the lobby was locked and I had to pass my credit card and ID through a small window - Breakfast was terrible, a few muffins and cold cereal, the gallon of milk was sitting out on a counter not being kept cold, there was no coffee and the manager was on the phone in the next room speaking very loudly and we could overhear his conversations.

Ok to start I had haggle on the price almost walked away because of that.
Room was decent and there was no one arround so it's quite. Not much for breakfast they have a waffle maker butI it doesnt work. nice park in the back for the kids. but for the price id say its about fair.

the staff was very friendly, however the room was dirty. there were large stains on the chairs and no phone at all. the pool was very large and refreshing(the only reason we stayed), but apeared locked and i had to go to the front desk to get into it. i hope that this is new owners and they plan to put ALOT of money into repairs and new furnishings. if they clean it up, i would stay again, but not until then. i liked the location and the price, but was afraid of sleeping in the bed.

Room Tip: before you book, call and ask if they have remodeled. it desperately needs it.
