Okay trip

I seen the pictures online and it seemed buy nicer than it was, no way this place is a 3 star hotel, I was scared I didn't even get a room we booked, and I felt very unsafe and dirty, I didn't even wanna take a shower in that nasty bathroom...it was just gross I waited til I got all the home to shower

Last minute

We were doing some passing through & I was able to get a room on such a short notice. The room was decent & I'd stay there again.

I left the minute I walked in the door.

The front desk was disorganized/rude and keys did not work. I thought I was at a really bad apartment complex? Once I went back and forth and got keys that worked, I walked in to a dingy, smelly apartment like setting with dirty carpet. I walked to the thermostat and it fell off the wall, I drove to the front desk and turned in keys and RAN!

You get what you pay for.....

The first room I was given was dirty. The room smelled of smoke, the toilet had not been cleaned, and the carpet had major dirt stains. The bed sheets also seemed old and dingy. The room had no phone and was extremely hot although i had a reservation. They had no clerk to check me in, instead i was checked in by one of the cleaning ladies. The location was fine and price was great. But i guess i got what i paid for. Never again.

It was okay for a one night stay.

The lobby was very nice and the breakfast was excellent but the rooms needs renovation.

Falling apart motel

The place is virtually falling apart. Furniture had missing parts, the cover in the bed had a hole in it. There was no cover, just a sheet and the bed spread, no blanket. The refrigerator was dirty and there were no dishes or glasses in the kitchen area making the use of coffee maker obsolete. The bathroom was dirty. The "suite" smelled of mold. The breakfast room had leaks from the ceiling and peeling off wallpaper. The experience was as from a bad dream. We stayed only for one night, but if I arrived earlier I'd have looked for another place! You must be desperate to stay there. This place should not even be advertised here!
