Stay far, far away from this place... So I arrived and went to my room. NO MICROWAVE. Go to use the phone to ask them why?, Big big hair ball on the phone. Then pick up phone, not working, never worked. I look around in my room and place is filthy. Looked like some one walked on the walls, there was mold in the bathroom, floors were dirty. I went to the front ask about microwave and she said "it's the luck of the draw, some have them others don't." I ask for some cleaning product's . I clean the whole room. The 2 towels and wash cloth were black. I was unable to get the mold out of the tub,so I requested some bleach. She gave me a large cup. That night I pulled back the top very thin, thin as a sheet, only to find no sheet no blanket. The heater was at 85.. but felt like 70. Now I'm sleeping in a cold room, no sheet no blanket. I was so tired I just layed down . I'm giving this place a 1 because the staff was nice. The lady gave me cleaning supplies and the guy the next morning gave me a blanket. I Even had to clean the fridge. I told the lady she needed to fire the housekeeping and maintainace. Wow this place was so terrible.. They do not deserve a 2.7. I think that the people who gave them 5 stars are paid to do so. No way they deserve it.

We were enroute to a family reunion and arrived at 3AM. Just needed a place to lay down and catch a couple hours of sleep. Surprisingly, the clerk was awake and very attentive to us. We got a decent rate but when we opened the door to the room, I was getting an uneasy feeling about it. The sheetrock looked like it had a big hole punched into it and someone with NO experience had fixed it. The wall had "waves" where the sheetrock had either gotten wet or had not been nailed to the studs. The refrigerator's door appeared as no one had cleaned it for about a month or two. The bathroom door had a screw sticking out of it near the bottom. (yes, a screw) and the mirror on the bathroom door had the holders, but no mirror, and you could see where the mirror used to be. Upon stepping into the shower, you could tell there was NO support on the bottom as the fiberglass bathtub felt like it was fixing to spit and drop you do the floor. There were only sheets on the bed (no blanket/compforter), the A/C was blowing cold bug also was leaking on the carpet next to it (which I found out by stepping into the wet spot on the rub with my sock feet (YUCK) and last but not least, just inside the entry door was a trash can with a roach lying on it's back with one leg just a twitching. Now for the good - We walked into the room and there was no blanket/comforter on the bed so a quick trip back to the office and the clerk went out of his way to get us blankets. The TV acted like it wasn't going to work and the clerk offered to change it out so I wiggled some wires and it began to work (worked the rest of our time there) When we checked out the next morning (another good point is checkout is @ 11AM) we noticed the carrier for the room cards had been used and we got a "reused" one..guess you have to give a lil credit for being "frugal" and "recycling"! :) overall, I give this hotel a 1.5 and the 1 point is for the helpful clerk. whomever they have cleaning this place needs to be sent on down the road!!

We started in room 206 and the air conditioning was terrible. So we moved to room 219. Such a major difference in air conditioning. The beds were clean, but pillows are seriously flat. Age is definitely shown on this hotel. It’s not the best and cleanest, but it is affordable for a short stay. (No bugs!) Breakfast was great; sausage patties, eggs & gravy.

This is a property where there are smoking rooms and it is pet friendly. Those are the "pros". The staff was excellent, however the amenities were so poor, I had to rate it as low as I did. All of the ice machines were down the entire 2 week stay. The pool was dirty and not cleaned on a daily basis. The business center was not in working order and you could not use it. There is one washing machine and one dryer for all the occupants. The maintenance man was absolutely wonderful as well as the cleaning staff and front desk. On just staff at this location, I would give it a 10! The rooms were excellent! It was the amenities that were so poor that made this property less than desirable. And the internet was so poor, that you have to use your own.

I had a guaranteed reservation confirmation number R21500. upon check in, they could not find reservation. They had one room let they took from someone else that hadn't shown. My reservation was for May 6-8. The room they gave me was a smoking room, coughed during entire stay. Phone did not work in room, front desk made aware, never fixed. Front desk had to come fix tv. We arrived at 12:30 am May 7, finally got in room at 1:30am after a seven hour drive. front desk kept having to call her manager. Rooms needs painting pool was dirty. Passed my concerns to front desk, they said would let manager know, never heard anything from general manager.

I stayed there one night. The king size bed was surprisingly comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was better than most with biscuits and gravy, grits, eggs, bacon along with the usual fare. The shower was fine and Karen who works at the desk was very helpful getting us checked in early. Would stay there again. The room could use a little sprucing up and could stand a good deep cleaning. As an added bonus they even had beer on tap for the thirsty travelers.

Hotel has outside opening doors, the outdoor areas needed maintenance. The beds were the best part as they were very comfortable. Rooms were fairly clean not spotless, decor is dated. Breakfast was average but had signs limiting to one serving no seconds. Staff was friendly.

Overall I really enjoyed my stay here. One of the better breakfast I've had in my many years of working on the road. The beds are really comfortable, housekeeping has worked with me around my schedule and my 2 month olds sleep schedule. The staff is friendly and quick to resolve any issues I had during my stay. There was some remodeling going on during my several weeks stay.The work areas were well kept and clean unlike most remodel projects.

I stayed in mid November for four nights and again in mid December for three nights. The first visit there was a new manager (I have stayed there previously) and he was making upgrades to the location. I had no problems in the previous stays and the manager took time to make sure I had no problems. There was a leak in the sink but when told about it the clerk moved me to another room immediately and I saw a repairman working in that room the next day. On my last visit the breakfast area had been reworked and while upgrade signs like paint were about, there was no interference at all with my stay.everyone from the cleaning people to the front desk staff made me feel like I was one of their friends. For the money, I would stay again in a heartbeat.
