Only stayed two nights and I am determined to spread the word about my stay...
Horrible and quite scary experience. From the minute I pulled up the attitude of the front desk was visible. The young lady was very rude a and slow. The front desk is the face of the Hotel..how about a hello? a smile?
Sadly, I just wanted to get my room(already paid for) so I could get some sleep before work so driving to a different hotel was not a choice.
At night its beyond scary random people quite sketchy roaming around...The ice machine was located in front of my room so I had quite a few wake up calls(all night and early morning).
Please save your money and go elsewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I booked two rooms for one night, July 16-17, 2016. We stayed in rooms 225 and 227. Each king room was $67.00 + tax. The purpose of our stay was to cab over to Skipper's Smokehouse and see a band. We will never stay here again. Where to start...

Our room, 227, had zero water pressure in the shower. The shower head was completely clogged. The other room, 225, had air conditioning issues until it finally kicked in full speed. The property consisted of long term residents. There were people milling around all over the place. There were people sitting in the stairwells. The residents pulled the in room chairs outside (cloth seats you know that are molding out in the heat and humidity). Just gross.

There were a couple of rooms with their shades drawn open. The mattresses were completely turned up and leaning against the walls. We couldn't figure out if they were fumigating for bed bugs, or what was going on. We clearly really, really, wanted to see the band that was playing down the road!

There was an obvious law enforcement presence in the parking lot both before our concert and after.

I told the male front desk clerk when I checked out about the clogged shower head. He was completely nice but uninterested. You could tell he knew what the hotel was, a dump, and he wasn't going to apologize or even deal with my complaint. Besides, we are the one's who did stay through the night. If it wasn't for Skipper's, we never would've stayed. Next time we are going to plan our Skipper's night in advance (this was the only hotel available the same day) and stay elsewhere.

You will absolutely feel unsafe and totally grossed out at this motel.

Reading everyone else's reviews, I had very low expectations for the hotel. It was actually very good for its price! The breakfast was decent, and the hotel room was relatively clean. The air conditioning was very high up and the room was very cold. The blankets were very thin but the beds were very comfortable. The pool was also very nice, it was warm and clean but the rooms had only one towel.

King bedroom - Shower has no water pressure, calcium deposits on faucets nothing that Line a way can't got out, carpet is warn out, Cleanliness can use improvement (Big time). I can say the bed is most comfortable and has a update flat screen TV. Property itself can use a face lift, fresh paint, and much grounds keeping, Pool very clean and up kept. Location convenient to I 275, and away from the Bush Blvd area. Quiet location. This Inn has potential. Overall good for the price.

Room tip: Pool side is best for view.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are in the process of renewing our rooms and getting new carpet put in. Hopefully you will give us another chance once the renovation is complete.
