I stayed here for one night while helping a friend relocate after the beds in her house were packed up by the movers. I was going to get the free continental breakfast, then drive her extra car and dogs to their new home several states away. My expectations were minimal, but this hotel did not meet even them. The woman on duty at the desk at check-in was almost a comic character, so unfriendly and stone-faced was she. When I protested being put in a smoking room, she insisted that is what I had reserved, which is patently absurd. She glared at me accusingly and with great disgust changed the room assignment. The lobby was hot and smelled of tobacco. A/C repair trucks were on the premises for hours, but the temperature stayed the same. In my room, a used wash cloth was hanging from the shower curtain rod, the toilet seat was at right angles to the fixture, attached by only one fastener. The shrubbery was so overgrown probably a third of my first floor window was obscured.
The continental breakfast was horrible. The deserted room was dark (half the fixtures were burned out apparently) and hot, no one was in attendance at 8 am, the one juice pitcher was emply, coffee was weak and tepid, the bagels were OK, but the only thing to put on them was some kind of artificial butter spread. There was one toaster and only half the slots worked. There were two cereal choices, but I was afraid to use the milk in the carafe. The place was so depressing and seedy I thought the milk might be adulterated by some disgruntled employee, although on second thought, I got the impression there probably weren't any: Mom and Pop on the desk and daughter cleaning rooms. When I tried to check-out at 8:30, no one came in response to the bell. After more than 5 minutes, a man appeared with shaving cream on his face. He accepted the key but did not give a receipt or even an apology for tardiness. He waved to where others had left room keys, and his attitude was of annoyance. Guess my friend will have to check her credit card statement to verify the charges.
My belief is that this hotel was probably good at one time, but that since the people I saw have been running it, nothing beyond the bare minimum has been done. They should lose the franchise. AAA should scrape their sticker off the door. Not recommended.
