Stressful

Had to switch rooms due to hair and trash upon arrival, even in ice tray. Staff was nice but everything else was horrible. If there were openings near by I would have left.

Keep driving past this hotel!

Had to request another room due to the fact that our non-smoking room had been smoked in, still had cigarette butts in the toilet and sink. The room looked and smelled like it had been used just minutes before we walked in. Also, even though it was posted that locals weren't allowed to stay in this hotel, it was pretty obvious that more than half of the guests that night were locals. We did not feel safe one bit. Because we were not allowed money back, reserving 3rd party, we were stuck in the room w/o a remote, tv didn't work, bad electrical issues, door didn't shut completely & we pushed a chair against the door. The staff was friendly, food gone before we could have a chance to get any breakfast, the towels were fresh. No pool like advertised. But, we got what we paid for and only needed it for a few hours. Quiet.

Not Very Relaxing

everything was ok until we noticed the vanity light was out reported it at 6pm still wasn't fixed at 8pm and then realized the phone didn't work when we tried to call the front desk. walked up to the desk 3 times before telling them at 10:15 pm to forget it we were tired and going to bed. Apparantly they had already forgotten about it. This was a big inconvienence and no one including the manager seemed to care. Did I mention no tissues in the room, discovered that in the middle of the night.

Excellent trip!

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was very nice and the room was comfortable. The only thing that did not work was the telephone in the room. Overall, the stay was great and I would stay here again.

1 Night stay

the comforter was gross. Bedding had "personal" hair left on it from the people before us. We asked for more pillows and they said that they couldn't bring us any. our friends were staying in the room next to us, and neither the latch lock or dead bolt worked. When they asked to me transferred to another room, the staff argued with them and wouldn't give them another room until our friends argued with them for 30 min. I guess that's what's to be suspected when "econo" is in the name of the hotel

Not impressed

When I got to my room, I turned on the light switch and nothing happened. So I entered a dark room by myself and tried to turn on the table lamp and it didnt work, so I went to the wall lamp and that didnt work either because it didnt have a light bulb. I had to go in the bathroom to turn on the light. I had to call main desk for some light bulbs. Really! and the hotel was not in a good part of town.
