Breakfast is not free

The hotel is just okay. They are remodeling, so maybe things will get better. Website told me there was a free breakfast but upon arrival I was told that there was a charge. For the price you are better off at the holiday inn that is in the same general area.

It coulda been so much better. The room smelled horribly and there were cigarette stains in the shower.

Sub Par Experience

Pulling up to the hotel, I noticed that the area wasn't ideal. Walking into my room, there was a horrible stench that tended to linger so we kept the window open. The coffee machine had a short in it. The bath tub leaked and had cigarette burns on it. The bed was comfortable though.

Bed Bugs or Fleas

I think I got bed bug bites or flea bites from the room I stayed in last night. My husband said he was itchy all night and I had bites on my legs this morning. This Hotel is in a shady neighborhood. The rooms are old and the you just get the impression that it is not safe. I was just happy my car was not broken into or stolen. I will never stay here again and I don't recommend anyone to stay at this hotel.

A BAD NIGHT!

Hotel was on back-up electricity for 4 hours. Hotel told us no a/c, no TV for unknown amount of time. We were gonna kill time by swimming. But pool light was in chair by pool with cord still attached to light running into the water, did not look safe. We just wanted to leave the hotel. So, we did but Hotel would not give refund or discount on a one night stay.

Worst hotel i stayed in the last 10 years

disappointed. I was being picked up early the next am so I stayed at the hotel. The place was run down and dirty. Lights didn't work in the room. Electrical outlet hanging from wall. Flat out gross. I should have walked to the Holiday Inn close by but it was late.

DO NOT STAY HERE!! CAR BROKEN INTO AND HOTEL NOT HELPING!!

DO NOT STAY HERE!! CAR BROKEN INTO AND HOTEL NOT HELPING!!While the room was decent, Our car was broken into over night and yes, they do have signs in the parking lot stating they are not liable....that should have been a red flag!! With major damage to my vehicle and items stolen, I cannot get the hotel owner to call me back. Apparently he does not care about the safety of their customers. I was told by one employee that there are NO CAMERAS IN THE PARKING LOT and another told me YES THERE ARE CAMERAS IN THE PARKING LOT....come to find out....there are cameras but they are not hooked up or working. I would NOT stay at this hotel again even if they paid me. Not worth my safety or anymore damage to my vehicle!!!!
