We were headed to Summerfest at the last minute, and couldn't find a reasonable room. so despite our misgivings we booked a room, the place in disrepair, the shower had a hole in the tub, the outlets by the desk would not hold a plug. since they were the only outlets except for the bathroom, we had to stack shoes...

Room appeared to have new mattresses which was good to see because I was a little skeptical after the looks of the rest of the hotel. Now they need to spend money on new pillows. The one I had was very lumpy therefore I did not sleep well. New towels would also be a nice touch. Didn't have time to... More

Ya it's ok for one night. It's showing it's age but is clean and the front desk was nice. It's an old Howard Johnson's with a connected resturant, resturant is ok. Real close to the airport and easy to get to.

We always pay as little as we can for hotels, as we aren't In a place to see the hotel. Most of the hotels we stay in score below 2 stars on TA before we visit but you get what you pay for.

First experience - smell in the lobby. Second - sign that no unregistered guests are allowed - as I understand due to a number of adult entertainment businesses in the area - so I marked it in my review as known for night-life and romantic activities Hard mattresses = bad night sleep, but if you are there for a couple...

I knew there were problems the minute we drove into the parking lot. Curtains falling off the windows/ patio doors and sticks in the patio doors to keep them locked. My initial thought was "I'm paying $172.00 a night for this". I sucked it up wanting to be a team player because we were there with friends. They upgraded us... More

I was very disappointed in the hotel. When we first pulled up I knew it was going to be a nightmare. When I went to check in the employee was kind of nice but definitely not like I was expecting. She was in the phone then on her cell phone then just standoffish. She told us where are room was... More
