Reviewed February 17, 2013

This hotel is horrible. I'm so lucky I literally only stayed here for four hours. I do have to say the manager was accommodating and allowed us to do late check out(which we ended up not doing). The bathroom was filthy,the bathtub had black grime in it, the room was freezing and took almost an hour to warm up. The continental breakfast!!!! HORRIBLE...sliced bread,mini muffins and SPOILED ORANGE JUICE!!! Yes, I drank a sip of the orange juice and it was sour frothy and obviously spoiled. When I showed it to them at the front desk they said they must have left it out from yesterday. When they brought more out, the container they used was probably 1/15 full. When I checked out,no receipt nothing!!! I was honestly going by the choice hotel brand but this was just horrible. Choice hotels should be very careful of what franchises they allow to use their name.

Stayed there last summer from out of town. Got reservations online and I assumed since it is a chain it had to be at least decent. First thing when we got there the other guests kept peaking out at us unloading our vehicle. They looked like crackheads and I later found out that this place rents rooms to locals that I was told can't afford the 70 bucks a night. So they rent out the crappier rooms for 25-35 to locals a night. Our room leaked water onto the bed from the ceiling. I talked to management and they said they would give us half off our stay. Turned out he meant just that night... Totally worth listening to water drop into the garbage can all night... Right. It's located in an isolated (No decent restaurants nearby or stores) and crappy area also. It's a dump and totally not worth 80 bucks a night after taxes.

There are a few things about this hotel that I disliked...
The staff was OK but in no way friendly.
The rooms are VERY darkly lit.
There is NO coffee pot or microwave in the room.
The "Continental Breakfast" is a huge joke...it was watery coffee, box mix OJ, and packaged muffins, white bread with jam packages.

For the rate I guess you get what you pay for...would not stay here again.
