Car swow

Hotel is old and could use a remodel. Ice maker was very old and ran out of ice quickly. Place on ceiling for smoke detector but none there (did not see another one on ceiling unless there was one on a wall I did not see). Hotel was value priced so I guess I got what I paid for. Staff was friendly.

Run down, dirty, unmaintained and not a value.

The hotel is run down, and in disrepair. In our room; the shower would not work without the tub running as well, the drain in the shower was partially clogged and backed up, the toilet hardly flushaed and was dirty, the bathroom door was falling apart and water damaged, the comforters were disgusting, the room was only cleaned 2 of the 4 days we were here, the carpet is from the 70's and badly worn/stained, the wall paper is (literally# falling off the wall, the pool is closed, empty and filled with sludge, and the parking lot is basically on the highway. Everyone passed on the continental breakfast. It consisted of cheerios and milk that was not refrigerated, some miniature muffins sitting out on the counter, tang #not Orange Juice), and some bagels also just sitting open on the counter. The area is nice, but this hotel is probably 20 years older than everything else in the same location. Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else.

Hotel Review

The staff is friendly enough and accomodating. The structure/rooms are in need of updating and are in disrepair. The room entry doors have seen their better days, with large gaps at the bottom and visible interior damage, Apppears like door locks have been relocated or replaced more than once. The walls between rooms are not sound proof, could hear noise when other people came in, slaming of doors, talking loud and chatter at different times during the night. I felt like I should be sleeping with one eye open all night. For the price we paid, I would have expected better accommodations.

A little out of the way on a dead end street, but despite being an older hotel, it was perfectly clean. Good tv, and a nice pool. I thought it was a very good value for an overnight stay.

Never Again

This location was not worth the price...likely used on an "hourly" basis? I was afraid to sleep in the bed for fear of "catching" something! Too close to the highway - trucks kept me up all night. Breakfast not served when I left at 6:45am.
