Recent guest reviews

Ac was not working right. We asked for help. Ask for different room. Nothing they could do for us. Basically told us we can stay or leave. Never again.

Run down, feels unsafe, unsavory characters hanging about

Hotel was dirty in side and outside. The front desk clerk was dressed terribly and the hotel smelled of smoke. Would not recommend this place at all

Nice conformable stay . Just wish they had some type of breakfast. They had coffee

The most important thing about a hotel stay: 1. the bed. The bed was good enough. 1. the folks that meet you at the desk. They had a good disposition and I felt like they cared.

No hot water to shower with, room key problems, wore out bed, room stunk,

If you want a high-end, expensive place, you'll be paying a lot. If you need a place to rest and shower, this place will do the job.

The pictures online are not what we got. The hotel was run-down. The main lobby was dirty, with a rude clerk, and the place oozed of cigarette and pot smoke. The suite had broken clothes hangers, the carpet around the air conditioning unit in the room was wet, the plugs between the two beds where the nightstand was did not have a face plate, can you say fire hazard, and there where flies in the room. It was the worst hotel experience ever. The room was cheap, the customer service was terrible, and our over-all experience would have been better if we stayed in a hostel. They are at least clean, friendly, and don't smell.

I would stay there again as it was the cheapest I could find that close to the city center

The motel had a very strange policy, that was not included on the information sheets given to guests at check-in, of the maids not allowing guests extra lines (2 washrags in our case) without advance arrangements made with management. And since the maids spoke no english that led to a difficult and stressful situation. I hope that problem has been addressed by the Motel management.

We had assumed from previous experience with Howard johnsons we would have a decent place to rest. First impression was lil run down, we went in and noticed a musty smell. No problems with check in. Went to room and signs were posted saying remodel in progress. I have to be honest, I think demolishing the would be best. Lots of signs of water damage, suspect from years of neglect maybe. Our room was ok, bed was good but took a bit to get used to the smell. I would no recommend.

There were bugs in the bathroom and near the beds. The carpet had ironing burns and dirt on it. The towels had stains on them as well. The front desk was not helpful and seemed disinterested when asking questions. I would not stay here again. It was close to the airport and that was the only redeeming quality.

In no way can this hotel be described as nice. I've stayed in HoJo's across the country and I've never experienced one in this bad of shape. I thought I would be OK because of the name. Not so much. It's rough. Inside and out. Not much else to say.

Need to tell people when you're under construction wasn't worth the money and 3o'clock wait glad I was with some good people enjoyed the town but wish I would have known about the hotel

This place was horrific from entrance to check out. Spend the extra 30 bucks a night and go somewhere decent. Too many negatives to list. Only positive is a good location.

The room was not clean,however the bed served its purpose. Locat

The hallway had a strong smoke smell. But it was cheap the price

It was ok.the guest were kinda rough but overall it was average. It was centrally located. The front desk clerk was very helpful with directions. There was a gasoline station beside it w/c was helpful.

It was roomy and quite. .close to downtown. And a great bbq.place..It Needs Up grading..

Decent area, good value, but little rough around the edges - no stopper in the tub, even after asking, loud clientele, broken vending machines......but clean room, polite service, and overall a good value
