“great for the price”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

The room was clean and comfortable. The people were friendly and helpful. It was also quiet so you could rest. If I am in the area again this is where I will stay.
Having read other reviews I had none of these problems. The wifi was a little hard to connrct to but once i got there it work well.

This place wasnt bad. The rooms could have been cleaner, but it was ok. I enjoyed the wifi. Was a little creeped out by the woman standing near my door all night. On the plus side the front desk was friendly!

We recently stayed at this property. We were in an end room and the Wi-Fi would not connect for my wife. The room was not very clean. The bed was not comfortable. Of all the rooms that were open they put us in the one next to the huge dumpster full of building materials and other garbage which made for a lovely odor. The breakfast consisted of stale dry cereal, boxed danish, and terrible tasting orange juice. I guess I shouldn't have expected much for the price, but I thought it would be as nice as all the photos they had on their site.

Although the hotel was in OK shape, it was hard to sleep because there was prostitution going on all night, the guy in the room next to us kept his door open ALL NIGHT and people were coming and going from his room. It seemed like maybe drug activity. When I spoke to the manager the next day - she was great and listened to our concerns. The other DAY staff was good too, but the night manager did not know how to work the internet system and said it was our computer that was the problem - we couldn't use the computer all night. The day manager fixed the problem with their system in the morning. The breakfast was OK, but AGAIN there was a guy who was in such dirty close it made me uncomfortable. Service during the day was good and the manager tried to please guests.

Room Tip: Not recommended unless they claen up the rift-raft problem.

If you are planning on staying make sure its a guys only trip. A lot of the rooms are filled with hookers and I am not joking. Stayed for 3 nights for the bowl game and was asked each night if I needed company. Found razor and used womens clothing that was very sexual in nature under our beds. Our last night here we had a car full of women offering their services with their pimp driving them. No security on site for your protection. Seems to be a lot of dead beat locals using the rooms for various reasons. Please reconsider staying at this brothel. Also swimming pool was shut down by the department of health for sanitary reasons.
