This was by far the worse hotel that I have ever stayed in. The room smelled and there was garbage under the bed including a old water bottle and a broken phone. The light in the bathroom was impossible to turn on without getting up on the sink. The blinds were broken so we had to put a towel up to keep the light out.
To get to our room, we had to walk by overflowing garbage cans. We had to kick more garbage out of the way (on the sidewalk) to get our roller bags in.
Several times, we tried to call the inn before we got there and in every case we got a different answering message. None of them identified who the call was being forwarded to. Requests for call backs were not honored.
Had we not gotten in late, we would not have stayed at the inn. We were so concerned about bugs in the room that we slept in our clothes. We got out of the room as early as possible the following day and never looked back.
The inn appears to be run by people who just do not care. I would rather stay in my car then spend a night here again. I would avoid at all costs!
