Lately Hotwire has really let me down. This is considered a 3 star in their eyes. It's a 2.5 at best... really a 2... and that's before I found used (dirty?) towels stacked (or strewn) in the bathroom. Made me wonder what else wasn't clean.
Speaking of unclean... in the morning some tattooed young drifters were lurking in the parking lot being oddly friendly and asking me if there was a "restroom" they could use. Overall, the folks staying here were a smorgasbord of low rent characters.
This place dates back to the early 70's and it shows. In the rooms and lobby, the decor is either of the era and sadly outdated or slightly updated and tasteless.
Customer service was questionable. I prepaid the reservation and called to say I was showing up late (after midnight). Each time I was told my room would probably be held for me but the hotel was booked solid and there were no guarantees that it wouldn't be given away. What? I pre-PAID!!! I was upset till I checked in. Oh how I wish I had gotten my money back. Don't stay here! BTW... I only "saved" $15 with Hotwire off the red lion website. Soooooo not worth it.
