Awful room. Sink leaked so bad, the entire floor got soaked. The bathtub was frightening. The bed was so cheap to begin with, being in terrible shape made it worse. I didn't want to take my clothes off the place was so gross.

From the moment I walked in the curtains were dirty and smelled of smoke. I don't know when they were last washed. The furniture was also old and dirty. I went to Wal-Mart to buy Lysol and spray the room. Thereafter I left and decided not to stay in this horrible environment.

This is the place to stay for a beautiful view and a good price. There is an elevator for those of us that can't easily climb stairs with luggage. First night, had 2 towels, 2 wash clothes, 2 coffee cups and no extra pillows as previously requested. Second night, 2 towels, no wash clothes, no coffee cups, and no extra pillows. Asked at front desk for pillows but was told there were none. Next morning I requested these aforementioned items from the maid (I also left a tip on the bed). When returning for the night all was well. The maid had provided everything.

Very convienantly located next to restaurants and shopping.

room and facilities is old, request full clean up but the "same old bed sheets", air conditioner is noisy...

This place just needs to be updated. Room was old inside. Chairs stained and falling apart. Bed clean but old

The room reaked of cigarettes and urine. The pillows and sheets smelled as if no one had washed them in a while. Everything in the room was horribly out dated and internet connection was horrendous. Worst of all I felt very unsafe and uncomfortable just being there as a female. I will never return and I would not in a million years recommend it to anyone.

The room was shabby! The front desk clerk was great. Would not stay there again. In fact I only stayed one night. I put the address in my phone (from out of town) and it took me out into the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night - not good!

The room was great. It was neat and clean. Just enough room. And comfortable. Nicw comfy bed.

We went to check in and even though i had made my reservations a month before they had given our room away. They finally gave us a room but was too small for our needs. Asked for a roll a way and was given a small mattress to throw on the floor. The bathroom was dirty and property in just ok shape. The staff was rude and was never around. Please don't bother

Seems to be the home of indigent people and substance abusers. There was night long partying right outside our door. Bathroom door had a whole and the entire property seemed worn out. The free breakfast was poor. Yes, there were waffles. but little else besides that.

It was very good. I would stay there again. It was a nice and quite place. It was a good experience.

The Hotel is run down and the halls smell which wouldn't keep me from recommending it because the price was low but when we got to the room it wasn't cleaned. It had dirty towels on the floor and someone else's half use toothpaste and soap on the counter and the toilet wasn't cleaned. The bathroom floor had pee stains on it. The bed was made and cleaned but the bathroom grossed me out.

This hotel is in desperate need of renovation. That is all.

My husband checked into this hotel yesterday as he just needed a clean place to sleep. Boy was he in for a rude awakening. The condition of the room was disgusting with holes in the bedding, dead bugs in the bed, holes in the walls, the bathroom was filthy as well as no towels. He asked them to bring him towels and they made him go to the next building to get them himself as well. It is a horrible experience and place to "lay your head." I felt so bad that he had to try and sleep there. Also the type of guests there were shady so I worried about his safety as well. We totally regretted picking this hotel. I would advise you choose a different hotel. I've never had an experience at a hotel that is this disgusting.

Staff very nice. Room size was good carpet was dirty! Bottom of feet would be dirty from walking on it. Price was good. Pictures online do not reflect actual rooms.

If I had not already paid in advance for this hotel, I would have never stayed there. The lobby area was decent- no problem there. We had to take the elevator to the 4th floor as the stairway was out of order - never mind walking. Out of order ? what if there was a fire? would we need to jump? The problem with me taking the elevator is that is was hidden away behind a filthy, paint chipped,smelly, holes in the flooring, no knob on the door-just a filthy black hole in which we had to place our fingers to open- vestibule. When we arrived on our floor we were treated with the nauseatingly pungent smell of marijuana. The room was musty, the bed mattress was well used, the bathroom had mold growing in the corners and soap scum on the tile walls the carpeting had hills and valleys. The towels and wash cloths were stained and paper thin. The room was not cleaned during our stay-ie wrapper from soap was left on the counter exactly where we had left it for 3 days. My daughter had just returned from an extended trip visiting 3rd world countries and she said this was the worse room she had stayed in. The WiFi was so bad we could never get anything to up load. The breakfast was minimal - self made waffles, wrinkled oranges, dry oatmeal in a pitcher you made yourself-coffee seemed to be empty every time I went for some. Stay away from this place !!!!

Our bathroom had period blood all over the toilet and floor. There was also pubic/body hair spread around the shower and tub. There was also something plastic or rubber stuck in the drain. Obviously our bathroom was unusable. I spoke to the manager downstairs and she acted like it was no big deal. Did not compensate us for anything. Run, run far far.

There was only 2 of the staff that were nice and friendly, all of the others seemed to be very rude and short with me. The people that had been staying there for a while were loud and annoying. It was pleasant experience overall although they do need to work on cleaning the bathrooms and walls a little bit better
