Older motel that's currently going through some remodeling. Even with this, our room was for the most part clean enough, another group in our party said there's was somewhat smelly of an animal odor. Pool area is not too bad of a size. Parking is adequate, but also not real easy to access all of it. Close to quite a...

We didn't eat or drink in our room and when my boys and I went to get some sleep, my son noticed ants....all over the nightstand and my bed. We went to the front desk and were told to wait while she called management. After a while she came and helped us move to a different room with no ants....

The lady at the front desk was very rude and sloppy looking with uncombed hair. Seemed to always be in the back sleeping. Hard to get her to front desk. Electrical outlet had been burnt. Big chip in sink. First room assigned had not been cleaned. No bath mat. Dingy and depressing place. Their excuse was renovation but did not...

The hotel was under renovation so it was kind of messy, but not bad. Biggest downfall was the heat in the pool and sauna not working hardly at all so they were both extremely cold and uncomfortable to be in. The breakfast was nice and the room was clean. They ran out of towels which was a little frustrating but...

We had a wonderful spacious clean room. The cleaning staff was wonderful making sure we had all we needed for our 3 day stay. But the lady at the front desk was not friendly. She never smiled or welcomed us when we arrived. The next 2 days were the same. She was just short of being rude. Not a good...

The lobby was under construction so we overlooked that. The room was spacious except for the bathroom. You had to close the bathroom door before you could sit on the toilet. The toilet had a plastic seat on it, that did not fit. My husband and I got one bath towel that was very rough. The shower head was only...

Pretty much the only thing I liked about the hotel was the bed. I had to get past the crusty bits on a pillow - but the bed was quite comfortable. The housekeeping needs to step it up - BIG TIME. My in-laws had to switch rooms twice due to unclean conditions. The pool was freezing - big disappointment to...

“This hotel is on a major highway and the rooms in the front are noisy”
  • The beds looked like they had been slept in before I checked into the room
  • This is how the threadbare pillows looked with all their wrinkles when I walked in the room.
