“Very Disgusting!! I would give this place a negative rating if I could”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

The room we reserved was not even cleaned after the last guests. Hotel is ran by phone you will never see an employee on site. Called the # to tell them the room needed to be cleaned & that the water did not work in our room. The man on the other line said oh well & hung up on me. They over charged my debit card by a full day & they will not call me back or return emails. Please stay away this hotel is a scam! Wish i would have read reviews before giving my credit card #. This place is disgusting & so is the staff!!!

After having to wait over an hour to be able to check in it was very disappointing. No staff was around. Check in was done by phone when they finally answered! Dust was every where. Window sill had dirt on it. TV was nice, but that was about all.

There is no hotel reception, they give you a code over the phone to get your key. I didn't feel safe in this hotel, and it was not clean at all. It was cheap compared to other choices and only thing available but I won't stay here again.

Stay away from this one.
It was cheap (if you can call $99 per night cheap; but it was over Christmas).
Check-in: no staff present, lock boxes instead.
Room: Clean sheets and towels. The rest was terrible. Small, old, worn, too small a bed. The room smelled musty, no amount of (loud) air condition helped.
Bathroom: Extremely small with broken tile and moldy shower curtains. Maintenance badly needed (the sink faucet was not fixed to the sink).
Security: Non-existent. Anybody could have walked into the hotel through the open door or back-door. If you have no staff, you need to have locking entry doors, in particular if the room doors are as flimsy as the ones here.
Service: Non-existent. There is no daily service to the rooms, no new towels. If you want those, they cost extra ($7.50, if I remember correctly).
Wifi: They Wifi worked, and was actually fast enough for streaming.
Contract: There is a very good reason that their cancellation policies are strict and they don't refund if you leave early...

Summary: Do yourself a favor and go to some other hotel, even if it is $40 more expensive. It will be worth it.

Room Tip: I don't expect any room at this hotel to be good. Stay away.

Pros: Room was clean, air worked and the bed was comfortable. Good for overnight stay but not geared for multiple nights.
Cons: Strange check in procedure, no cup/glass in the room, no ice available and no maid service.
Word of advice. Don't open the shared refrigerator on the first level.

Room Tip: Do not have any helpful tips.

Not a fancy hotel, but for storing your gear and a place to sleep and shower, it was good. The close proximity to restaurants, supermarkets and shopping was very helpful. Low foot traffic area. Parking is for small vehicles. Don't expect room service or maid service.

I checked in her pretty late on a Thursday evening. There is no physical person present. You pick up a telephone located in the entryway, make your reservation, and are assigned a code that opens a lock box where you get your room key. (All pretty cool and futuristic.) I located my room, turned on the light, and walked right back out. The room was REALLY dirty, even for my pretty lax standards. While I was on that same phone again in the entryway, the owners just happened to appear and ask what was wrong. I explained my issue and within seconds I was shown to another room that was clean and perfect! The owners stated that they had just taken over the establishment and were trying to get all of the rooms in tip top shape and few just had not been attended to yet. The hotel is older so don't get your expectations too high but they had free wifi, nice toiletries, and the awesome coffee shop next door offered a 10% discount with your room key. Additionally, they were priced a good $40.00 less than any neighboring hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor that has been refurbished.
