It was very late when we checked in at approximately 11:30 PM March 30.2013 after a long drive. I asked for a room closer to the reservations office, instead of across the street but was told this was the only room left.
Got to our room and the smell was like in side a cave, very musty and stale, the carpet was wet and sticky. This room had no ventilation whatsoever except for opening the windows which we didn't want to do, being in a strange place. The walls are very thin in this tiny room; movements and conversations can be heard next door. The legacy heater took about 20 minutes to even get warm. Our one night stay was terrible.
The next day we complained to the office supervisor she was very defensive and showed no empathy to our plight. She said there was nothing she could do about it, this was between me and Hotwire with whom we booked the room online. I understand things do happen however when management shows this kind of callous attitude toward their guest its time to speak up. I will never ever recommend this place.
