First of all, the photo online of this property is not this property. This establishment is a dingy yellow and blue color. Its right off of the interstate, yet even the truckers choose the Best Western across the street.
Few issues with the room:
1. The piss smell.
2. Three light bulbs were out, but there's not enough outlets to plug the appliances and the lamp in at once anyway.
3. Pillows were the size of couch throw pillows with a full size pillow case folded around them.
4. Handle on the toilet was broken.
5. A chair leg was broken, which I discovered when trying to sit down.
6. Room 318 is an "upscale" room with refrigerator (that froze our Chinese food) and a microwave. Yet it is situated right by an exit. If my room door was not locked, the opening and closing of the outside door caused my door to open.
7. Dirty paper coffee cups in a desk drawer.
8. The heater sounds like someone beating on your door, all night.
9. Granted it was a pet friendly room, but when we got there the menus and do not disturb sign were chewed up.
Bottom line is do not stay here. There is a decent looking Best Western right across the street. Go anywhere else but this horrible little place.
