Reviewed September 3, 2012

We drove into town for a family cookout and as I pulled up I was shaking my head "no!"and was ready to cancel my reservation. But decided to not judge the book by it's cover, so I entered to check it out. I first asked to use the restroom and it was spotless as was the lobby. Before I would sign that I would pay $150 if the room smelled of smoke I wanted to check to make sure it didn't. The staff had no problem in showing me the room first. And to my surprise it was really nice, clean and modern looking. Not like the outer appearance! After checking in we checked under the bedding for bed bugs (any bugs) and found nothing. The carpet wasn't grimy or smelly. My only discord was I saw a strand of long hair on the sink and floor of the bathroom. (Note to housekeeping: pay close attention to the small details.) I owned a cleaning service for 8yrs and have an eye for detail.
When we returned that night it was nice and quite. We saw people but wasn't disturbed by noise. We had a great nightsleep and the front desk had no problem with giving us a later check out.

This is obviously a property in transition. On arrival, things were tense. Looking at the hotel from outside immediately made me wonder whether or not I was actually going to stay. After a few minutes of deliberation, it was decided to go in but insist on seeing the room before actually checking in. The staff had no problem allowing the rooms to be viewed, a good sign.
There was an issue with our reservation, and frankly, I wasn't sure I could stay in this hotel, but I knew rooms were scarce that weekend and I was ready to just settle down for the night.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover the room was not only clean, but the bed and linens very comfortable. There is some noise from the highway and nearby airport, but not nearly as much as I expected. I was at no time disturbed by any noise outside, or inside the hotel.

After a rocky start, it turned into a really great stay! Thanks to the willingness of Charles, the site manager, and an extremely helpful Jonna(sp?) from housekeeping, I left feeling like I'd made new friends. Any ruffled feathers from the first night were expertly smoothed and things were made as pleasant and comfortable as possible for us. These two people did everything in their power to make us happy!

Overall, this location needs some TLC and updating, but it is on it's way up, and in the mean time, it is being kept clean and comfortable with the help of a committed staff.

The manager, Chuckie went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay was comfortable. The hotel rooms were nice & clean, quiet, and attractive. Kudos to Chuckie for making our stay pleasurable.

Don't do it. Pay more elsewhere or go farther away, but run screaming from this place. I pulled up to the hotel and knew it was time to cancel the reservation I'd made. The building doesn't even have a sign on it, let alone look welcoming. It's next to a crumbling facade of another hotel, and it's set far enough away from the road that no one would notice it (including the folks from Choice Hotels, apparently). I got the feeling that it just wasn't a safe place to stay. Don't waste your money!
