Location was very convenient for where I was traveling as it is right off the interstate. Beds were comfortable. I had to pay a damage deposit in addition to the room rate which I was told gets refunded after I check out and they decide your room looks ok. Thought that was annoying and weird because they already have my credit card number. Only had two towels in the room even though I paid for three people to stay. Bathroom door was hard to open and close and had no lock. Bathroom was very dark. All in all I would not stay here again as I feel like you can get much better accommodations somewhere else.

We are glad to hear our location was convenient for you during your stay. We collect a damage/security deposit from all guests upon check-in which in turn would be used against any damages/stolen items or smoking in a non smoking room. We run debit/credit cards at time of check-in so we know the funds are available as we cannot know after the fact if damages, etc will be covered by running debit/credit cards after check-out. Unless we are made aware that doors, locks etc do not work we cannot let our maintainance staff know so these repairs can be done.

This hotel is way overpriced for what you get. The room was disgusting and falling apart. There was dirty washcloths in the bathroom, thumb tacks to keep the curtains pinned, smoke detector was not even hooked up or on the wall and much more! I reached out for a refund and still have yet to hear anything!

I booked our reservation at least two weeks ago, booking a non-smoking, 1 KING bed room. I go to check in today, and was told my reservation was changed because the hotel sold out. Front desk associate told us she was sorry, and would put us in a room with TWO KING BEDS. Ok fine. We were still getting a KING. We got our room key, only to find out the room was occupied and trashed by those in it. We went back to front desk and associate did not believe us. She made us wait in the lobby while she checked the room for herself. She came back to find out we were correct. She then moved us to the room next door. After getting settled in our room, we noticed two things right away. More than half of the tv channels are not working and the beds are QUEEN, if that, and not KING. The desk and chair in the room are tore all up, and fridge is cracked in numerous places on the inside. It's clear this place has not been updated in years. The price for this place is a joke. I should have gotten a discount on my room as when I booked, the queen rooms were cheaper than the king, but I couldn't even get that. We will not be back to this place. Save your money, for $10 more you can book a better hotel half a block away.
