This place is beyond DISGUSTING. OLD. Out dated. Dirty. We get our first room and walk in the comforter has a big cigarette burn in it, the bed skirt had a big white stain on it. When we asked for new bedding they gave us a different room. This room had no bed shirts and the chair has a big...

Nothing special. Dated. But fine for a place to sleep. Dated decor. But the room had a microwave and fridge. Front desk was very helpful when we had a problem with our room key. The night attendant was very gracious and spent considerable time with us

The price was fine at 55.99 plus $6.72 tax with the discount. the furnishings in the rooms were very dated and everything looked very worn and tired. The sheets were so thin and even the pillowcase had a large tear. The worst was...

Once again, a clean, comfortable room at a great price. The location is the best, the customer service is awesome, and if you just need a place to sleep, this is it! I stay here several times a year and keep coming back.

I stay here several times a year. It has always been clean and comfortable. They have some complimentary breakfast items, but don't fill up since the Northside Diner is nearby. The customer service is great and you can't beat the location and price!

Worst hotel stay of my life. Carpeting was dirty and worn. Halls were not air conditioned--stuffy and smelly. Three lamps in the room, one was broken and another had a bulb missing. A/C (Very noisy) had two functional settings: "High" and "Off". Shower had such low pressure that I had to bend at the waist to get my hair wet....

Ceiling tiles broken. Chain on door fell out of the wall. Place did not smell clean. Towels were old and scratchy, discolored and stained (dirty). Sheets on the bed were dingy and stained. I questioned wether or not they has even been changed. Under the blanket, the sheet was loose, wrinkled and creased. Only 2 bath towels in the room....
