Traveling for business, this was a last resort as everything else was booked. I did not feel safe, heading to my room, poorly lit, the door barely locked with an ancient deadbolt. Make sure you request a no-smoking room. My room smelled awful. So did I when I left. I could hear a man in the room next to me..... and I think I could have seen him if I peered thru the gap in the "adjoining" room door. There was a mark from an iron burnt into the carpet (do not go barefoot). Stains on the bedding. Plastic curtains that would not close to block out light (luckily I had a bobby-pin). DO NOT STAY HERE. I wish I would have left. A co-worker compared it to a Steven King novel. That spooky!
