No because I stay in hotels all over the United States and none of them ever care enough to fix the problem so the next time in that area I will try someone else.
Room/ sheets did not smell to good but has a great location for truckers next to Love’s truck stop
There wasn't a door knob on the bathroom door, just the hole for one. I had trouble getting clean towels because they didn't have housekeeping.
Easy access to Interstate 10. Parking area had own access, I felt my vehicle was secure. Room was quite.
The positive. Clean, quiet room with comfortable bed. The negative. Never any internet and I was there for 18 days. The hot water went out two times. The lamp shorted out and blew a fuse. I asked for a roll of toilet paper and I had to wait seven hours to get it after I asked again. They told me they were low on toilet paper.
There were rat dropping in the dresser draws I killed a black spider on the wall the shower curtain has black mold on it and the carpet in the hallway need to be vacuum
On my way from Georgia to Texas I stopped at this hotel for a night's rest and am so glad I did. I had a comfortable room and nice bed with all the modern furnishings and excellent management. Nice quiet room, and a free breakfast to get me refreshed and going on the road again.
My room was so nasty and lobby too. Smelled of cigarettes and weed. Lobby and breakfast area was disarray.Receptionist was always asleep or smoking. Breakfast was lacking selections. I would not recommend this hotel location.
I should have made a hasty retreat the moment I walked through the front door. The odor in the lobby was uninviting at best. There were numerous incense pots throughout the lobby, Either the incense didn't help mask the odor, the incense was the odor or a combination of the two.
First I'll start with....YUCK! I walked and immediately felt the nastiness of the place. It reeked! Trash everywhere, ac busted so it was hot in the lobby. The breakfast bar area looked dirty. Walked upstairs to our room and opened it to get hit with an even more disgusting smell than the lobby and boy was it strong, so strong I got a migraine from it. There was old food left in microwave, trash under the dusty bed, the coffee maker looked like it hadn't been washed in decades, toilet was stained, carpet was so dirty I didn't take my shoes off, the bed was hard as wood, there was only like 5 channels, broken ice machine, I mean come on bro! After 30 minutes I couldn't hack it any longer, I took the kiddos and headed out! Told the receptionist the room was filthy and I wanted to check out- she replied with "oh I'll have someone clean it real quick",,,,, um no it should've been cleaned prior to my arrival. The owner needs to upgrade and renovate. Spend the extra cash and go elsewhere. You've been warned!
