My husband and I are frequent guests of this hotel. About 6 months or so ago we were getting fed up with the lack of management, failure to maintain the property and unsavory characters that were allowed to stay no matter how loud or disruptive they were but then a new General Manager came and immediately we began to see...

Unfortunately this is the closest place to us so when my mom and aunt decided to come down for a surprise visit, I recommended this place to them. I was mortified the next day when they told me how dirty the room was, even more so when I saw the room for myself. The carpet was filthy, there was what...

The rate at check in was half of what was quoted and I can see why. The place was a dump. Bugs on the ceiling, water damage on the carpet and dirty. The room smelled like cigarettes. Some electrical outlets did not work. The remote for the TV was missing. When you flushed the toilet the water had an odor....

I booked a nonsmoking room. I arrived and the room smelled heavily of smoke and the garbage was filthy so it's not like they didn't know. There was an ash tray bucket thing in front of this nonsmoking filled with cigarettes. Why don't they just bill themselves as a smoking hotel? Next to the beds were 2 long vertical mirrors....
