Upon arrival it didn't look so bad. The lobby was nice and clean and looked decent. Once we got into our room...things changed. The rooms are very small and packed full with stuff that really just doesn't fit in the room comfortably. The beds are extremely hard, there was hardly any walking space in the room. And it gets worse (i know right?) The bathrooms....oh how i loath these bathrooms. There is not a sink in the actual bathroom. At the back of the room there is a long counter, with your sink and all of the towels and what not items that CHOICE makes them put out. And then the actual bathroom with the shower and the toilet....looks like a forgotten closet. I had to literally push the door past the toilet just to get in. Mold on the ceilings, tubs are dirty and stained. The decor is from the the 80's at least. Blue tile squares....with lots of grout in between. And to make matters worse my 6 and 7 year old daughters found a pair of thongs in-between the bed and the wall. That was fun explaining why underwear looked like butt floss. carpet was nasty dirty.
With all this being said...the witch who checked us in was just that...a witch. But the young man who checked us out was very nice.
Overall...i wouldn't stay here again if it were free. This hotel makes choice hotels look very bad, this should be a crack hotel and then it would get 5 stars.
