No frills but it's simple, good, and cheap. Definitely showing its age but for a simple quick stay it's fine. It's about two hours from the GWB (three with modest traffic) so is an ok place to stop overnight if heading to the City. I often stay here when returning to NYC. Rooms have refrigerators and microwaves. Old TVs. NOTE:... More

It's ok for a last resort place to stay.most hotels give you an 11:00 a.m. Checkout to a 2 p.m. Checkout.if you're not out by 10:00 a.m. They charge you for another stay. No ice machine,no soda machines or snack machines.

If you like paneling, mold, have your VHS tapes handy, and enjoy the wonderful feeling of rotted wood (otherwise called "soft flooring") this place is for you! There IS wifi though. That's a plus. ! Unit # 5 doors was obviously kicked in as the door jam was damaged and the chain lock was held on by one screw! With... More

Second visit to the local Blues Festival, stayed here both times. I believe it got worse since the first time! Pros: manager is friendly, price is good, location. Cons: Dirty (with a capital D), smelly, "no frills" is being overly optimistic, several lights burned out and many stains. My wife said "never again"! Next time we pay a bit more... More

We bring our own sheets and towels. The first thing we do after changing the sheets and shoving the comforters under the desk is clean the toilet seat. Yep. This place isn't for the squeamish. If you don't mind weird smells, sticky floors and sleeping on piece if cardboard wrapped in fabric, this place is for you. We stay here... More

I needed help turning the key in the lock. The manager claimed it was a new lock. We set the dead bolt and the manager climbed through the window with DW40 to use on it so that we could get out. Mold was on the windows, air conditioner and ceiling. The room was beyond musty and a friend's room was... More
