This place is so unsanitary i could not stay after seeing 2 rooms. The first one had obviously had people smoking weed and they must have fishbowled the room. It was horrible. They had bathroom window open to get the smell out. Knew about the smell in that room, but still tried to rent it to me. No screen on... More

We booked late so everything else was sold out. We usually like Hampton Inn. I've never stayed in a hotel like this. It is very cheap but everything is cheap. Towels, bed sheets, comforter, everything had stains, it seemed dirty and disgusting. It was a horrible experience, I won't do it ever again. I would prefer to sleep in the... More

The pool was empty and the Wifi signal was one bar and not working. When we asked for the password the Lady at the front desk didn't know it.... More

Stains on the sheets, burns around the electrical plug, a lamp with no shade on it for light in the bathroom, stinks of smoke in a non-smoking room, flies in the room, the broken coat rack literally hanging off the wall, stains on the walls and the chair, and the wood around the...

This is one of the worst hotel experience I've had so far...and I didn't even get to stay there, which I'm very grateful from reading other reviews. My sister and I checked in the evening and was told he could not find our reservations. I told the gentleman at the desk that that's impossible because I called earlier that morning... More

They didn't want to give us our money back so my b/f spent 40 mins on the phone with Expedia and finally got a refund. Never ever... More
