When we checked in and went to the room there were no face clothes and only 2 hand towels and 2 bath towels. The room was a non smoking but there was a empty cigarette package laying on the arm chair. I called manager to come down with the face clothes and to remove the cigarette package so he could...

$99.99 per night for a $20.00 room. The room had a stale smell and there was a hole in the wall. The TV had a fuzzy picture as if the cable wasn't hooked up properly and it was positioned almost level with the bed so watching it while you were lying down was impossible the hall carpets were full of...

It was the height of the summer tourist season, so not much was available. Good: Card key worked first time everytime Fridge & microwave Ample light and counter space by sink Sausage & biscuits...

Awful! Overcharged us because it was around 4 th of July. Rooms smell funny. Walls need painting. Not enough towels in the rooms. Everything's unplugged and you have to find outlets for the lamps. They allow dogs and they bark all day long! And management won't do anything about it! I would never stay here if I had a choice!

We started our 10 day Motorcycle trip by booking this Hotel......WORST mistake we made. We should have known when we pulled in the parking lot, it was a weekend and there was not one car to be found. We went to cancel our rooms and the lady charged us full price for both rooms even though we canceled. I could... More

The room was a good size, the beds were bouncy but comfortable. The bedspreads are quite old and in need of replacement. Other than that, the room was clean and comfortable enough for an overnight or 2. The front desk girl was very nice and welcoming. Breakfast was good.

After you have to call the front desk lady to come out to check you in (yes, they have a phone you have to dial for someone to come help you), you are greeted with a stench, it only gets worse when you walk into your room, and the air conditioning just made it worse. We had a scare after... More

*NO SMOKE ALARM in the room!! *BROKEN shower head sprayed water to ceiling *Sink and shower would not drain *Smelly, musty room..filthy carpet and bathroom floor not cleaned *Fur-like dust behind fridge I'm almost positive that smoke alarms in each room are not only standard, but the law.... I do not recommend this hotel!!!! Stay far far away!!!!!!!

The title says it all. The room smelled, there was a dog in the room next door, barking constantly when we checked in, both beds had a crater in the middle and should have been replaced years ago, room was dirty and smelled like urine.
