My husband and I were on our way home from our honeymoon. His mother and I both work for Choice Hotels. When we contacted this hotel they assured us they had just remodeled and were up to code for the new Choice regulations. Upon check-in, a large roach crossed the lobby floor. Since it was late, I was willing to look past that. When we pulled around to the building where our room was, we were greeted with loud music, marijuana smoke, and drunks. On top of that, they were yelling and making us feel very unsafe. We walked up into the room, but when we tried to shut and lock the door, there was an inch gap between the door and the frame. You could see straight outside!! The room was covered in dust. The toilet had someone's fecal matter still in it. There was mold all over the ceiling and what appeared to be blood on the bed clothes. Oh, and some nice hairs on the towels that were laid out. Needless to say, we did not stay the night! Seriously, it is worth the extra money to stay away from this place!
