This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. If there was a zero rating, I would have given this hotel a zero. The bedding was filthy with blood on the blankets. There was mold all over the shower tiles. When I tried to turn on the shower, the faucet actually fell off, and was corroded!! The rooms and...

Not only was the bed hardly made, but the help was bordering on rude. When I asked for help getting the WiFi, then didn't seem to care. But the topper was on my last night stay, a bug went crawling across my bed. Never would I recommend this place.

This hotel has seen better days. I suspect they haven't quite recovered from 2008. However, my experience there was ok. The guy at the front desk approached entertaining. He gave me a room that was probably better than i was originally supposed to get as a result of my online booking, but described it as being "just like the other...

On the way home from Michigan City. Rooms are clean, building very old. The pool and atrium area are neat, but needs a lot of work. No towels available in the pool area. A pain to have to go back to the room and get some. Easy access from Highway with plenty of fast food choices. Check in took forever,...

This place is EXTREMELY run down. While everything but the in room safe worked it was really beat up. The bathroom was moldy, the caulking was peeling in most places and the safe looked like someone took a sledgehammer and /or crow bar to it. The elevator was on the verge of being shut down, there was a sign saying...

We were dropped off by the Tow Truck driver after being stranded due to vehicle breakdown. This is the absolutely WORST hotel we have ever stayed in. The health department needs to shut this place down or a Wrecking Ball would solve it. Smelly-Dirty-Bugs-- A Nightmare!

I booked a quick cheap weekend get away for my family, found this place online, it said 6 out of 10 stars.. I thought "not bad" but upon arrival the nonexistent customer service should have hinted me to the bigger concerns.. The hallways smell like wet dog, and dust and cobwebs from the 80's linger off every Orpheus and fixture,...

The pillow cases and sheets were nasty. The ceilings were falling in. The quilt on the bed had burned holes from cigarettes. Hallway smelled like pot. Just a terrible experience. Do not stay at this hotel.

We arrive here late and did not have so many choices of hotels. There was no breakfast, the rooms was dirty and old. The price was expensive consider the shape. Do not feel well at this hotel. So pick another one if you can.
