There are a few sections of this hotel/motel. The newer section in the front and side and the older section in the back. I stayed at both. The place is ok, usually has vacancies. It's not for the primadonnas here that want to spend 400 a night to be pampered. It's a room, bed, tv. I like it because it's... More

I was on a girls trip this past weekend. we weren't picky and we're not high maintenance princesses, but this hotel was horrifying. the rooms are old. I've stayed in old hotels before in other places but old and dirty is ridiculous. especially when it wasn't cheap. so, our first room didn't have a shower head. and only 1 light.... More

Yuck!!! How is this place staying open, and getting away with not refunding unhappy guests??? Will try to post a few photos that show a very disgusting bathroom! Motels and Hotels should be inspected on a regular basis, just like Restaurants are subject to.

Do not book this place. Customer service of the employees and even the manager is terrible. Please find another place to stay it may be cheaper than average but do not waste your money and time here. Had multiple issues while staying here and the employees and even the manager did nothing to solve my issues. They showed no empathy... More

Excellent service from the moment we arrived! They invited us to check in 4 hours early! We were greeted warmly and the service continued. We asked that our room not be cleaned because it was immaculate when we arrived, but the housekeeping still offered when she saw us to change out towels and take trash. The rooms MUST have been...

I noticed upon sitting on my bed that it was broken! Seemed like someone took scissors to the bottom of the mattress and tried to cut the bed into a twin bed. I went to the office immediately and notified the young lady at the desk. I was told that they knew about it and I could not switch rooms!!!!... More
