I've stayed there twice, most recently this past weekend and I must say that it's only good for maybe a night or two if you're just passing through or are in Carlisle for an event. The hotel is in total need of renovation. Peeling wallpaper, old carpet and lack of upgrades really aren't a selling point.
I never had a problem with them before this weekend. First off, I booked a single double bed for the night and when I got there, the manager said he was upgrading my room free of charge to two doubles. For whatever reason, I had no idea. They weren't even booked solid - not even close. I checked into the room and almost immediately requested a room change. Everything was nice except for the bathroom. The tub had been dripping from the shower head for who knows how long since it didn't look like anyone stayed in my room for quite some time, and from that, the side of the tub was all soaked from the water hitting the spigot and running all over the floor. The result of that was mold growth in between the tiles on the floor and the floor was soaked as well. The towel that they usually hang on the side of the tub was also soaked and smelled of mildew. I cleaned the water up and packed up my things and went to the desk to request for another room. My girlfriend and I weren't going to be breathing that all night. The manager (I don't know his name) gave me another room and didn't really apologize. I was frustrated at that since we drove quite a bit just to get there.
It's ok for a night or so, but not much more than that. Rooms are large, I'll give it that. Beds aren't so bad either. The place definitely needs some work, and maybe it would get more customers other than the truckers and occasional travelers passing through. I would consider looking elsewhere, but since I'm a Wyndham Rewards member, it was an easy way to get points for not a lot of money. I will probably stay again, but next time, look at my room very carefully.
