The room was filthy. There was food on the blankets and sheets. You could tell the housekeeper didnt change them. Thete ead dog hair everywhere. The table and counters where sticky with food and coffee so i could tell nothing had been wiped down either and there was old food still in refrigerator.. When i complained the front desk lady came up to look and was disgusted as well. She have me new bedding and we temade the bed together and she swept and wiped counters herself. She called managment to try and get a discount bit her manager told her since we booked thru orbitz there was nothing they could do and they had no other rooms available. The front drsk girl tried her best to fix our room and was very apologetic but she was the only one there and nothing much else her managment would let her do when she called them

Staff was nice. Very clean room and comfortable bed. Don't even have to leave the room to get ice.

Lobby and rooms were freezing, Roos could be adjusted but then everything in roo became damp feeling

Loved having an actual fridge and freezer in the room. The 4.99 breaks fast is nothing special and is just food that you can purchase in the little store there. A Perkins is close by and has excellent food! Would stay here again!

Room was clean. No tv and no response to fix it over two night stay. No cleaning of room after first night. Fire truck called to the hotel twice in twelve hours. Had to evacuate the building at 6:30 a.m. due to fire alarm. Breakfast was ludicrous. Front desk knew nothing about where to eat.

It was clean and I liked having the full sized refrigerator. Very comfortable bed.

Nice clean and convenient hotel! Would recommend to all.

Thank you for staying with us. We apologize for the inconvenience you encountered during your stay. We will address this immediately with our staff. It is very inconvenient for you to have needed to evacuate the building however the safety of our guests is our top priority. We have a 4 day housekeeping policy due to being an extended stay hotel. Room attendants will clean your room and replenish supplies on the 4th day of a guest's stay. Any time between then, our staff is more than happy to provide fresh towels upon request. We hope you will give us another chance in the future for a much more comfortable stay.
