Clean room good beds. Unfortunately the heat was hard to control and the fridge was not working

Very clean and friendly staff! Easy to find and eating places close by!

You're probably reading the reviews for this hotel because you're looking for something cheap. After doing the same thing myself and staying here, I wish I would have just dropped another $20/night and ended up in a much nicer place. The hot tub was broken. The pool was tiny and way over-chlorinated. The breakfast was donuts, dry cereal, yogurt, and waffles. As for the sketchy part, everyone in my group independently came to the conclusion that there's a brothel being run through this place. Questionable people arriving late, leaving early, key cards left poking out from under doors to rooms, back entry doors left ajar. It gave all of us a weird vibe. We were attending a wedding in town, and while at that hotel for the reception, we definitely regretted out choice. If you need to save ~$20, go for the Econo Lodge. However, if you can spare a few extra bucks, your experience will be greatly upgraded.

It was move-in day at the university, lots of guests. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Room was clean, smelled clean, tv worked and was great, lots of space. Hot tub/spa was not very hot, pool room was chilly, breakfast was lacking, no waffle mix, no scrambled eggs, no milk, most things ran out, muffins were COLD. We have stayed here before and had good breakfast, may need more staff for a busy weekend.
