Hotel room is ok. Receptionist OK. Rooms were not as specified, all had 2 beds instead of 1 bed. In my room, the TV pic was very fuzzy and the bathtub semi plugged. My colleague had to change room due to very loud wall unit. The rest including the breakfast was reasonable value for the price.

The hotel/motel needs a complete makeover. It is so run down that words cannot describe it. It is though conveniently located next to 3 strip clubs which I think the majority of their clientele is associated with. What a dump from the lobby to the bed I wish I had one of those lights used to detect bodily fluids in the room to confirm my suspensions.

Checked in quickly. Free Wi Fi works well. Toilet will not flush and the maintenance guy is off property at the moment. Oh, no hot water either to take a shower but if you look out the window you have a good view of the nude bar across the street. My wife could not get out of the bathroom as the door stuck so badly lol. We got a suite room for $90.00 but it looks more like someone took a can of paint and went slap happy around the room. Bathroom is horrible. Actually the whole room is pretty sad for that much $$$. We are just staying the night for a early flight in the morning. I would not come back again.
