A new team took over as management. They have come along way since my last stay here. Laura is who checked me in is very pleasant and has a wonderful attitude and made my Accommodations 5 plus stars. The rooms are very comfortable and the TV is huge and up to date. The hotel itself is quiet. I highly recommend anyone wanting a good nights rest to stop here. I am here with my girls and I feel safe. I will be returning.

It was a bed to sleep in, a shower to use and a tv to watch. For the price, it was great! Although, when I asked the front desk about the safe being locked, she said, "If it's locked it is because someone locked it and forgot the code so technically they don't work." In the end, it wasn't that much of an issue and the stay there was okay.

I wish I could give a 0 rating. This place was super sketchy. Our door didn't lock. Wi-Fi Didn't work. Phone didn't work. Hotel wreaked like marijuana. People were doing "deals" out back. Doors were proped open so anyone could just walk in. We didn't end up staying as I did not feel safe at all!

Wish I could put negative stars. DO NOT STAY HERE! Worst staff experience I ever encountered. Our lights didn't work, door didn't lock, nastiest bathroom I've ever seen, incompetent staff, people smoking marijuana in the hotel, literally saw a dog peeing in the hall way, homeless people roaming the building, various unfinished maintenance projects. I laid down in the bed and never felt so gross in my life, when I got up noticed their was mold next to my face. Next level of grossness - yikes.
