I wouldn't even give this place a 1. It was disgusting! Toe nail clippings on the bed, cigarette butts all over the floor, and the door had clearly been broken into. Chose to go somewhere else. Then 3 months later they decide to charge my card.

This hotel was clean and had everything I needed. The staff was pleasant. I knew, that at this rate, I wasn't getting a 5 star hotel and didn't expect one. They have a nice pool area. A couple of things occurred that were beyond their control. A vehicle hit a power pole that knocked out power to part of the hotel. Since I have a C-{Pap, I was thankful that the plug in my room had power. The next morning the AC went out. They called a repairman as soon as it happened. Considering the circumstances, they did the best that they could. I asked for a ground floor room and it was accommodated.

Reached here around 9:30 pm after a 700 mile drive and we were really tired. The reception was barred and that should have tipped me off but I was so tired I could not think. After paying we pulled around and it was a hotbed of night time activity. The room was so shabby we did not want to undress to go to bed. I was worried the car would be gone in the morning. We skipped dinner and downed sleeping aids and jumped into bed. Slept reasonably well - it was quiet and woke in the morning and brushed our teeth and pretty much ran away. We stayed at a Rodeway Inn in Slowflake, AZ and it was quite nice. This one was the worst. Avoid!

If you can avoid thus place you should.The only nice person I met there was the african american housekeeper.Management are very rude.The bathroom sink was stopped up the whole time I was there.Alot of prositutes hang out in the parking lot.My first room there the tv looked like it was from the 80's.The refrigorator stunk.Just aweful.

Have to say this is one of the worse hotels I have stayed in the USA . Internal lock broken, a fridge that was not only shabby and old but sounded like a plane turning on and off all night, terrible mattress falling off the bed base, no bath plug, broken toilet seat should I keep going . Breakfast you can have cereal but no milk " sorry the guests all drank it the day before" Also I like " sorry we are not allow to clean your room if guest have luggage in there rooms!!!!! ". seriously absolute joke of a hotel could not wait to get the hell out of there not worthy of 1 star. For the record photo of the room nothing like we had I think that from a different Hotel

Booked this hotel for a weekend stay in Memphis never again...will I stay here room was kinda smelly carpet was very dirty had to keep my flip flops on my whole stay meaning whenever I got outta of bed to use the rest room ceiling looks as it was about to fall in from a/c unit water that was dripping into a trash can all night it was hair everywhere we looked.. shower walls Exedra pillows was flat only had two on a king size bed no iron or ironing broad in the room people at the front desk was nice thou rooms in need of major overhaul from top to bottom it was people walking around all night looks as if they were selling drugs no I don't think ill ever return to this hotel fan is bathroom very loud as well

My wife and I stayed at this location the staff here are very good people and make you feel just like family. They have recently updated the rooms to a more modern look. The manager Kendra and assistant manager Mr Patel go above and beyond their job titles. I can say this will be where I stay when I visit.

Ceiling falling in the bathroom, burns in the comforter, dirty hairy looking pillow cases, missing trim, lots of loitering and drug activity in the parking lot with taxis pulling in and out for them. NO breakfast but says there is. Lamp shade broke and hanging sideways. Just a run down dangerous unsafe place. Also a loud generator from a hotel or business next door comes on shaking windows every 15 minutes even during the night so you don't sleep while here. NEVER again I don't care if they paid me to stay! Not joking.

Book 2 rooms a week in advance got there and they had to give us another room do to they gave it to someone else. My room had no microwave plate a hole in mattress so the foam was coming out most outlets don't work stuff on walls wasn't for sure what it was I was to have king bed it was a full and for 2 nights people playing load music and yelling all hours of the night my boyfriend had to work in morning They did put us in another room not much better They other room a lot of problems my family also got another room but not better They had 4 people in their room 2 are kids they wanted to only give them 2 big towels for 4 people this hotel is awful I won't stay here again and recommend others don't either till they upgrade a lot some staff nice other not professional

Appearance of lobby was horrible! Not clean at all, I asked the desk person if the area was safe when we pulled up there was a young lady standing outside the hotel and it looked like she was either on drugs or drunk. We arrived before 3:00 and was told the room was not ready because they were cleaning it. When we came back after 3:00 there was trash on the floor like the floor had not been vacuumed. We tried to turn on the TV and the remote would not work. Also the TV was an old box model TV. We turned the TV on by pushing the button on the TV and the TV did not work. I called down to the lobby and the desk person said he would change our room. I asked him if they had flat screen TV's and he said in some of the rooms. When we changed room it was a little bit cleaner and the TV worked and was flat screen. If we were staying longer than one night I would have changed hotels. I was very disappointed. This is not a CHOICE HOTEL!!!!!
