My husband and I have stayed in this hotel on 3 other occasions without many complaints. It is reasonably priced so we did not expect a lot, but the staff was always very nice and very accommodating. This stay was the extreme opposite. We stopped by before check in to see what time we could check in, on previous trips we were allowed to check in early, we were told 4pm because they had a full house the night before. Well that was not true because we stopped by the night before and one of the employees told us they had 35 empty rooms. We came back to the hotel between 2:30 and 3 and asked if we could check in and again we were denied. We called the hotel manager and he allowed to check in. We were given a room that had not been rented in more than a month and the odor was overwhelming. We were not allowed to change rooms. I would not stay here again, nor would I reccommend this hotel.
