Recent guest reviews

This hotel is extremely old and run down. I won't stay here again.

The hotel was in a good location. There was a fridge and a t.v., although the remote batteries were dead. The air conditioning made the place an ice box. The beds and pillows were not comfortable, we woke up sore in the morning. The place had the potential to be really nice if they got new beds, put a fresh coat of paint on, and updated the furniture. All in all, it was not our cup of tea, but for 65 dollars, we got what we paid for.

The desk clerk tried to charge us for the hotel again, and didn't really believe that we payed for it online. Also, the heater in the room didn't work very well at all. We went on one of the coldest days of the year for a snowboarding trip and all we wanted was a warm place to relax. Walking into the room, it was not much above 50 degrees and even after turning the thermostat to 80 soon after, the room never got warmer than 65. The temperature at our feet was freezing as opposed to the ceiling where it was a lot warmer. We didn't pay for an expensive hotel ($60) so I guess we got what we payed for, but it still was not a very enjoyable experience.

Well, I immediately was disappointed when I pulled into the parking area for the hotel. It looked like the Norman Bates Hotel, older run down building. I was expecting an econo lodge chain, not a private hotel. There was a problem right off the bat because I had reserved a king size bed, but got two full size beds. I am 6 foot tall and my feet hang off the end of a full if I lay on my back. There was no alarm clock in the room, but a wake up call was offered and they came and banged on the door to wake me up. The shower was done in green tile from the 50's or 60's and there was plastic paneling on the walls without the benefit of a ceiling fan in the bathroom. As such the condensation on the walls built up and streamed down the walls then soaking the floor. Power was out in the building for most the night and as such I couldn't use my cpap machine I use for sleep apnea. Also when I woke up in the morning the room was quite chilly, 62 degrees, but the heat didn't work. When I hurriedly took a shower, the water kept changing from scalding hot to ice cold during the whole time I was in the shower. When I went to complain there was no one in the office and as such I had to just drop the key in a box and was unable to ask for a refund for my room.

I unfortunately was very disapponinted with the hotel. Not only did we loose power the night we stayed i hvae yet to recieve any kind of compensation. The shower was not working right, it was either very hot or very cold. The cleanliness of the room was alittle to be desired.

I only needed this room for 1 overnight stay. When I pulled into the parking lot I almost turned back around and left. The room itself just felt "dank." Not very inviting, not very comfortable. Only one not very powerful lock on the door. A man decided to have a conversation on his cell phone at 1am right outside my door. To give you an idea - my room number was written on a piece of masking tape and stuck to the door. Good location for the hotel but next time I'm spending the extra money to feel safer inside a more comfortable hotel.
