It’s my 2nd time that I have stayed here, l must admit that checking in here early you do have the opportunity to meet other guests and some guests you might want to stay away from. Room comfortable they were kind enough to let me a upgrade to a suite which was much nicer. I originally had a room in the first building but with the upgrade I went to the building at the back which is much quieter. Bathroom is a little smaller.

We viewed the location we were to stay at on another site and was impressed it had a 8.9 rating, so one would thinking booking here would be great but we were surely wrong! On the first day after arriving there was no toilet paper in the room, the hallways smelled bad and the room was minimally cleaned at best. The man staying next door to us had some type of “operation” running from his room Having to do with multiple women in and out, selling drugs or scamming people. He asked us if we wanted to buy he had it for us, whatever “it” was in his mind. Also almost every time we opened our door to leave he opens his to see what we were doing. He had people coming in and out room all hours of the nights every night we stayed! Then while coming in one day another man across the hall tried to sell us gift cards! The floor we requested was supposed to be non smoking, had no smoking signs posted everywhere but everyday all we smelled was weed or cigarettes. It appears as if people are living at this location as we saw many moving trucks coming and going and heard all types of things going on during our stay. Overall this is a location I would NEVER choose to stay at again!

Bought two rooms. Our rooms were give to someone else while we were out. We came back to find someone had taken a shower in one room and the other someone attempted to enter but thankfully we had the lock bar on. Possible old blood stains on pillow case. The smell of marijuana was everywhere. I will not be coming back.

My fiancé and I booked a room here during a roadtrip because we were looking for a cheaper “3 star hotel” We are both young and love to travel and are always looking for a good affordable place to stay during our trips. We have stayed at other 3 star hotels for the same price and they were safe, clean, quiet, and comfortable. This hotel was none of these. The front desk guy was nice but the walk to the room was not. First the key card barely worked to get us in the building. We had to try at least 10 swipes and the door and to be yanked open. The elevator was open and the lights were on but did not work and there was no sign saying so. Once you get into the building it says that there is no smoking allowed but it smelled like a smoker’s paradise. The carpets were covered in stains as well. Because the elevator didn’t work we had to walk around the other side of the building and go up an outdoor staircase and try to re-enter again using the faulty key card readers. We then got to our room which smelled like mold. There were several different species of bugs in our room on the bathroom walls that we had to kill. The carpet was also ripped in some areas. I then had to go to my car during the night to grab something and as I walked the halls you could hear guests yelling from many rooms. I had to walk back to the outdoor staircase at night since the elevator didn’t work and as I walked to my car, some sketchy looking people were lingering in the lot just watching me which was a bit uncomfortable as it was nighttime. Later that night I had a tough time sleeping as too many guests were being super loud in and outside the hotel. Overall, I always look for safe places to stay when I’m on trips and I did not feel comfortable with my Fiancé staying here with me but because it was late and we were tired we stayed one night and left as early as we could in the morning. I highly recommend not staying here as it is nowhere near a 3 star hotel. We were fooled because it had a good rating on hotels.com but this was not the case.
