Do NOT stay here. People pretend to be housekeeping to try n get into your room. There was dried blood ALL over the room. Including the headboard and doors which seemed to have been kicked in at some point. Management was terrible and my dog and I didn't stay more than a couple hours before being rescued. Seriously, just don't.... More

The front desk clerk Maurice was rude and disrespectful, we asked for a comforter for our bed it was missing, we asked for a different room or please just give us a comforter, he said no he couldn't give me one and that he couldn't change our room, so we said fine we would go stay some where else, could...

The hotel is in the process of changing from one chain to another. It is experiencing many growing pains. The front desk staff struggled with the computer system, the fire alarm was not functioning properly and they were testing it through to 9 pm at night. The young lad who was the maintenance worker was very friendly and helpful. The... More

It's kind of curious a place this large, dingy, and empty, stays in business. I got stuck here for work related travel for several days. The rooms are worn, but somewhat clean. Maid service is spotty. The breakfast offerings are limited, and the waffle maker needs to be cleaned or oiled, or something? I never got a waffle out in... More

We called and talked to Brian before checking in as we wanted to see if they had a refrigerator in their rooms. Brian said not all rooms have them but he would make sure we had one. We told him we would be there in about an hour. You would think he would have been working on getting our room... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times and always are happy with it. Always happy with it. The pool itself need to be cleaned but it was morning and the staff may not have gotten to it yet. The beds were sooo comfortable.

This may be one of the worst motels I have seen. The rooms are dirty and bathrooms filthy. There is a terrible smell throughout the whole place. It is not a Quality Inn but they keep the sign up.It does not feel like a safe place to stay.

I start all my reviews by saying I don't choose the hotel where I stay; my company does. The coating on the bathtub was badly chipped, paint was peeling in the bathroom, the ceiling in the room had a long crack in it (I thought plaster would fall). The room had a coffee maker, fridge, and microwave. The hallway on... More

The best word to describe this hotel is Ewwww! Dirty, musty and just a dump. Starting with the parking lot which is broken up pavement and full of pot holes you could lose a truck in. Carpet throughput the hotel is stained and I'm sure that is where the smell was coming from. They advertise wifi but we couldn't connect... More
