This hotel should be shut down! It was disgusting! The first room I was put in had a ton of black hair in the bed, along with what looked like feces from a small animal. I was HORRIFIED. Because I booked through a third party website, the man at the office said he couldn't refund me 100%. He moved me... More

First off, the office smells like they have been cooking curry in there. Second, my nonsmoking room smelled like someone had smoked in there or in a neighboring room. Everything was cleanish, would not walk around without shoes. Broken light switch in bathroom. Sheets and towels feel very cheap (expected for price). The worst part was the broken doorknob. I...

Advertised breakfast, but only served coffee. Advertised pool but closed for winter. Told employee that TV remote control did not work. Nothing done about it. Asks for extra pillows and received them. Room seemed clean.

Disgusting! The owners were so rude right off the bat. Rooms had mold every where, smelled nasty! DO NOT EVER STAY THERE!! They had irty floors and blankets. I asked for my money back and they didn't even try to accommodate me or listen to my concerns.

My room looked nothing like the photos on here. It looked like a room suitable for someone who only needed to rent the room by the hour (if you know what I mean). Was scared to walk around without shoes. Furniture old and stained. Most the switches to the light fixtures were broken. TV was a flat screen, but fuzzy... More

This place was disappointing. The room was really stinky and only half assed clean. The door was not easy to open. One of the drawers in the dresser was turned upside down and was just hanging there, obviously broken. When I alerted the front desk he thought I wanted to have maintenance come fix it...no, just don't want to be... More

When me and my two grown daughters checked in last Friday, we were shocked. The room was definitely NOT remodeled. There was a dirty bandaid hanging off of the peephole. The bathtub never quit running, and I saw a cockroach in it. The toilet would barely flush, and I noticed a plunger in the bathroom. Gross. Thank goodness we had... More

I just wish I had read the reviews before checking in. First the good, it was clean and did not stink. The bad: The AC was noisier than normal. The bathtub did not drain. The toilet was small and loose. The light switch in the bathroom was broken. A light bulb in the bathroom was missing. A light fixture was... More

When I checked in I went to take a look at the room. It smelled like it had just been cleaned, but the smell didn't stay when I left the room door open to get my things. AC worked very good, staff was ok. Not super friendly, but I wouldn't say they are unfriendly either. Down to business and I... More

Like other reviewers, don't let the outside fool you. We have a king bed, no smoking. $58. per night. Brand new: carpet, furniture, beds, tile in bathroom. New bath sinks, shower, paint. Totally new inside the room. Yes it is small, but for one or two people, perfect. In room coffee, microwave, frig, flat screen TV, computer desk, great WiFi.... More
