staff was nice. the a/c in my room took a day to get there. tv remote only worked going up channels. the forty dollar amenities fee was hugely unnecessary seeing room was kinda beat up to begin with and there was nothing in it to steal that forty dollars would have covered. it was fine for me. others. maybe not.

Location

Run down building. Dirty and smelly. Nothing like pictures. Some of the housekeeping staff clearly on drugs. People milling about the parking lot. Did not feel safe. I wasn’t expecting a 5 star hotel being as it was an Econolodge but this was bad. Checked in and immediately checked out. Had to pay for another hotel.

The front desk clerk was very polite. The room was disappointing very old and NO hot water for the shower!

The owner hotel refused to check me in once provided with the booking reservation from an orbitz representative. Stood there for 35 min and he refused to take any onfomation.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, only one glitch. We happened to get the room with slow draining sink & shower. Other than that, it was great. Room was clean, equipped with hairdryer, fridge, microwave. Free wifi. Free breakfast.

It was better than expected. The inside is much nicer than the outside looks.

Hotel room was dirty, and unkept. The pool was very dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned in quite some time. Breakfast was limited and no staff to oversee refills and such.

This hotel needs some work! The rooms were extremely out dated! Location was good, but some attention to the comfortability of the rooms seems WAY overdue?!

When we arrived the clerk was pleasant enough. However, when we checked into our room everything was dingy and old. Which is okay as long as it is clean. Sadly, it was not clean. There were crumbs and bits dirt in the threshold from the bathroom to the bedroom area. The sheets were inside out which showed lack of care. In putting the sheets on there were dirty straw wrappers behind the nightstand and there was enough dirt and fuzz behind there to have accumulated for a few months. As well as fuzz and dirt on the baseboards. The bath tub floor was gross. And the ceiling above was discolored and not painted. I would expect more of that from a 40 dollar hotel but 69 dollars I found it unacceptable. Within being at hotel 10 minutes since we booked through third party they would not give me my Money back. I tried again later and again in the morning. I have asked for the General Manager to contact me and sent her emails as I took photos of the room. They have done nothing. DO NOT STAY HERE.

They were friendly and was a very comfortable stay.

Wish pool hours were longer instead of 10 to 10 Breakfast was bread or coffee cake they said they ran out of waffle mix and no cereal Friendly staff and clean rooms it worked for price.

i've stayed there for one night. nothing special but what you can expect for this price. cleanliness of the rooms could be improved

i only stay the weekend for business and it was ok, but i ask for a nonsmoking room and the first thing i smell wen i get in, was strong smell of cigar.

They have refridge, microwave, that's good. But there's no coffee maker.

Asked for a king non smoking online. When I got there all they had was smoking. The whole floor stank of smoke, room was disgusting. I told front desk I couldn't stay there, all they had was 2 singles. Shower curtain rod was put on upside down, so floor was soaked after every shower. Next trip to Kent will be staying elsewhere.

It was a very good experience!! I always enjoy the front desk worker sheela!

Very well rounded stay. I enjoyed the very welcoming staff and the clean rooms.

close enough to goodyear tournament at a great prices room was clean breakfast was basic washroom was very small
