Upon checking in the room reminded me of mom and pop motels I grew up with while traveling with my parents in the late 60s and 70s. The room was clean, freshly painted and I was happy. The next day things changed. I travel nearly 200 days a year. I have never, ever experienced such horrible customer service. As stated... More

The first disappointment was at the front desk. The lady at the front desk was so rude. Her customer service was horrible. Then we get to the room and on the door it says non smoking but the smoke smell was so strong it hit us as soon as we opened the door. There was a stain on the pillow... More

This hotel was so dirty that I slept on top of the sheets and made sure as soon as my feet touched the ground I was wearing shoes. We are used to staying in rode side motels/hotels due to weekly travel but this was disgusting. The chairs in the rooms had caked on god knows what. The tables were filthy.... More

Would not give even 1 star. The room was clean, however, no room service for 2 days. Was told at first complaint they will not go into room without your OK. Was not informed of that at check-in. Was told it would be cleaned on Sunday. They had not made beds up, nor left clean linen or taken garbage. 2nd... More

We were pleasantly surprised how nice the room was for the price. The room was clean and odor free. The bathroom was spotless. The beds were extremely comfortable and the heating unit worked so well we had to turn it off during the night (it was about 36 degrees outside). I would definitely stay here again and it is close...

Not bad for the price. The staff was friendly and things looked clean but the room stank to high heaven of wet dog. It was late at night and we sort of threw our stuff into the room quickly. We were too tired to go back to the office or change rooms. I guarantee if we had, they would have... More
