I don't thrive on giving negative reviews and I was reluctant to rate this poor because the staff is so friendly, but the hotel itself is not somewhere I plan on staying again regardless. Where to start..We couldn't close our bathroom door all the way, the shower just kind of dripped, the toilet almost seemed like it was going to overflow every time it was used, the floors were dirty (I mean stained, gross, don't let your kids play on the floor dirty), there were no bedspreads on the beds, no extra towels, no extra pillows, no coffeemaker in the room, our refrigerator wasn't cold and the freezer part was a huge block of ice, there was mold (which I'm allergic to) on the walls & ceiling in the bathroom. On the up side..some of the furnishings looked fairly new, the bed was pretty comfy and again, the staff was friendly. Yes, it is a cheap rate, but I think next time I'll pay an extra $10 or $20 for somewhere a little nicer.
We didn't eat at the restaurant. Decided to go next door to Manny's Chop House, which was awesome! Can't wait to go back there!
So, I guess if you're only passing through and/or are on a limited budget, don't need amenities or extras, you might consider this place.
