Bad location. NOTHING within eye shot. Crumbling pavement with fresh sticky asphalt slurry patches. Abandoned building across the street with a semi parked in front. No greeting from the surly desk clerk who had a scowl on his face. Although the sign by front counter offered a Beal Street shuttle and other tour transportation, for a fee, he made no mention of that, nor the complimentary breakfast shown on the internet page. He slapped down the room card key, but not in front of me, so it seemed as though he was reluctant to hand it over. Only 2 coat hangers on the clothing rack and a giant 32-inch analog color TV. Pleasant breakfast room with live flowers on the tables but a scanty spread that didn't even include the DIY waffle maker I've become used to seeing in hotels of this caliber.

Stayed April 2013, traveled solo

We attended the Music Fest in the park by the Mississippi River, and the hotel was situated quite near the park. This was very convenient for us, as the taxi bills were not very expensive. The staff were very nice, and they had a shuttle service at a reasonable price. (The husband demanded more money when he drove us downtown, but we knew the price from an earlier trip, so he had to accept the right price when we protested..)
The laundry service was also ok, as we had been travelling for a while and needed to wash some clothes.

The room was filthy. The refrigerator and microwave didn't work. My husband went to plug in his c-pap machine, the lamp cord was spliced and wrapped in black tape creating a fire hazard!! We were moved to another room, not much improvement. Would have went to another hotel but we had already paid for a seven night stay. Also pool was non functioning in May!!!

Nice stay overall-this is an older motel, and isn't in the best area, but we have had nice stays both times we've stayed here

When unable to get a room at the Baymont they suggested this partner hotel. What an absolute mistake. The neighborhood looked rough, the hotel grounds were disgusting and dilapidated, the rooms were what I would expect of a super 8, but the best was running in to the front desk rep urinating in the parking lot--wasn't even trying to hide behind a car or wall, was just letting it go in the parking lot. Needless to say, I saved 50-100 by staying here, but had to see a stranger's manhood. Nice, new-ish mattress!
