Hallway carpeting was dirty and frayed in places, the restroom on first floor was out of order, the orange juice was unavailable at breakfast, the chain lock on our door was missing one part and the stool plugged up. The bed was comfortable. They asked that patrons not... More

My original review and pictures of how we found the room were some how deleted but suffice it to stay this place was not clean. We checked in to a room with hair on the pillows and some one else's leftovers in the fridge. Do to issues with the girl at the front desk trying to charge me for a... More
