OK, I've never stayed in a property like this one before but I just work too hard for my money! Cons: Strong smells of cigarette smoke in adjoining rooms that should be non-smoking, mold-mildew smell in my room, ceiling tile missing in bath which exposed pipe in bath. PROS: the best mattress I've slept on in ANY hotel in my...

Room itself was pretty average and clean (except for the dirty, balled up socks on the floor) that weren't ours. The TV remote didn't work. The bathroom was gross! Dirty floors, dirty towels with hair on them, filthy toilet!!! Pool was small but clean. If I were you I'd check out the 3 other hotels in the same area first.

First the pros...beds were clean and comfy, strong a/c units, majority of staff is friendly, fresh coffee at any hour in office, pet friendly with any size dog, safer neighborhood compared to others in this price, pool and area clean and comfortable for the most part. Second the cons...absolutely zero enforcement on pool rules (alcohol/glass bottles were allowed IN pool,...

If you're looking for a inexpensive place to stay, do not desire any bells or whistles, & can deal with the imperfections of a cheap motel... this may work. Otherwise, find somewhere else & pay more.

Oh where do I start??? First, I was never positive that I found the correct hotel until I saw a very small, cheap vinyl sign stating the name of this place due to the lack of signage! Then, after being greeted by an empty pool and lobby I tried to check in. The only thing I was not asked was...

We certainly appreciate this guests comments. First, as many of our guests are aware, we are in the process of converting our hotel to a Choice International, Econolodge franchise. Therefore, as per our contract with Choice, we have had to remove and order Econolodge signs. This is why we do not have a lareg neon sign presently at the front...

Attempted to stay here on 5/19/12. Booked room through Hotels.com. The first thing that hit us when we waked into the lobby was the strong musty odor of mold, mildew and cigarette smoke emmanting from the carpets. Then we were greeted by a long dead flower arrangement which was the centerpiece of the "lobby". The pool outside was in cracked...

We take pride in our property and in insuring a wonderful stay for our guests. Our pool is seasonal and was not open until Memorial Day weekend. Therefore, we had drained the pool and were updating/renovating as part of the process of completing it for opening, which is why there was no water in the pool, etc., as this guest...

We appreciate guest reviews, especially those that may be critical. Please note that our pool was listed and has always been seasonal. This is listed on our site as well as in signs when guests check-in. Until recently, the pool was not open as it was being remodeled. This may be why the guest saw there was no water in...

This is a great place for the price. The room was clean, the front desk clerk was kind, and it is in a nice location. All the rooms are inside corridors, so it is safe, too. Granted, our expectations were low since the price was so good, but what more can you ask for than safety and cleanliness? We asked...
