What you see isn't what you get. Don't believe everything on the internet

I was disappointed with the hotel. I was expecting to see something similar to the pictures on their website. Instead I saw a hotel in need of a major renovation (starting with the hotel lobby). The fitness center was inadequate and the rooms were dark and dinghy. The only saving grace was the breakfast which was good.

Couples Trip

We were only staying one night. We asked for non-smoking ahead of time and got a smoking room....they said there was no other rooms available. We are not super picky but this place is a dump. Black mold everywhere and had the open the window for our entire stay. Could have stayed at motel 6 and spent less money with better quality.

Great location to downtown. Room was big and clean enough, little dated but served its purpose and perfect for the cost.

stay

I stayed an extra day because family funeral. They would not give me the same rate. It went up to 89.00 instead of the 61.00 I initially had. Not good, service staff was not great, but okay.
