Unfortunately, this was the only place where we could actually park and spend the night. As soon as we walked into room 101 the stench of something like wet rug or smelly feet hit me. The door handle was broken and it tore my husband's favorite shirt! I had to bring in my own towels, thick covers to put over the dirty looking ones on the bed and our own pillows...HORRIBLE..HORRIBLE night and the restroom u can just imagine!! Uuggghhh...to top it off housekeeping was knocking at our door by 10:30 totally disregarding the "do not disturb sign"..only good thing was the gentleman at front desk..sadly :-( Never going back!!! Ever!

The room was fairly clean, except for mysterious carpet stains. I am not sure how thoroughly they clean the room though, since I found a previous occupant's shot records on the sink counter! We reserved online, non smoking, 2 queen beds. The beds in the room were full size, not queen. Could not switch because front desk said they were full up, but it wasn't. Beds were saggy and uncomfortable, but clean. Not the hotel's fault, (except for the fact that they rented to them) but while staying there two different VERY drunk parties came roaring into the parking lot and hit parked cars. It seems like it may be a college party place....we had a hard time sleeping worrying that our vehicle was next to be smashed!

Our room was cleaner and better maintained than the room we had the night before that cost twice as much. The bathroom was very fresh... The counter and sink looked new. We stayed on a Sun. night and it was very quiet. Everything worked. The breakfast was just sweet rolls and cereal, but for the price of the room that was okay. I do like waffles that most places have now.

Awful. Dirty shower, crickets in the room, barely adequate desk service, had to change rooms because door would not lock. I'm not a particularly picky traveller, but take it from me--don't stay here.

I booked this hotel for 1 night through hotwire. I have pretty good experience with Hotwire 2-2.5 stars. This definitely was not up to its rating. The reception area is filthy. The staff who checked us in appears unprofessional with dirty "hotel logo" shirt. I had no choice for that night since all nearby hotels are booked. After seeing the inside of the room with cockroaches on the sink, dirty bathroom, "used" bed linens. I just had to leave and forfeit the amount I paid for this Hotwire hotel. It was about 12 midnight and our family decided to drive 45 minutes to look for a better hotel.

we booked this hotel because everything else was full, it was not bad, it looked like it needed a good amount of repair, but the rooms were clean, the pool was nice, was a fair price, the beds were pretty hard and uncofortable.
