1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Spent a few nights there, I was by myself so I stayed in my room a lot. It was very comfortable and quiet but the room was too cold all the time. And the volume on the the tv was too low. But other than that a very convenient location of the restaurant and amazing staff.

People were nice good place to eat next door excellent place to lodge at will definitely stay there again

When we got there hotel staff was argumentative about my reservation, my girlfriend ( who is in a wheelchair) and the staff wouldn't even look at her. They finally gave use our key and then wouldn't even tell us how to get to our room. We had to search and go back and ask and got attitude cause we had to ask. The hotel was DIRTY AND SMELLED MOLDY AND MUSTY. Got to the room and when I stuck the key in the door and opened it someone was asleep on the bed and trash every where. We immediately went back to desk and clerk was like sorry nothing I can do we are sold out. I can't believe he would give us a key to a room with someone asleep in it. Where is the safety and security in that. Another employee a girl that we saw in hallway on way back to desk called him and warned him we were on our way back. Canceled my reservation IMMEDIATELY and took my business elsewhere. I mean the staff couldn't even take responsibility for the mess up and try to fix it.

only problem is key card needed to be redone couple of times.

The hotel needs to be deep cleaned. The hall smelled musty and the room itself was not better.

At check in the man at the front office was very pleasant and helpful. However, the parking lot had not been plowed and I couldn't get my car around to the back to the entry he had directed me to when I checked in. I had to walk quite a distance to get to my room. The door looked like it had been attempted to break in- huge chips out of the door. It didn't smell great either. The room was freezing cold when I came in. The floor was dirty- had not been vacuumed and there was mold on the walls near the floor in several places. The sliding door which was thin glass was not even locked- so anyone could have been inside. There was a rickety aluminum bar to "lock" it and it was difficult to get it to lock at all. When I turned on the heater blew flakes of stuff out at me and smelled burnt and dirty. The bed was comfortable, although I was reluctant to sleep in it, but didn't have much of a choice. The sheets seemed clean-except there was a lot of lint on them-or at least I convinced myself it was lint. The pillows were too big and hard to sleep on. The shower was alright except the floor of the shower was coming up when I stood on it. The bathroom wasn't too dirty- in fact I almost considered sleeping in the tub but I had a small child that that wouldn't work. It was super inexpensive, but it made me wonder if there are any standards at all for hotels. It was a disgusting experience in all. I felt dirty and unsafe.

The couch had blood on it and no bath spa in my room like i ordered.

Customer service was ok but the room was awful it smelt like mold it was dusty.... Trash all down the hallway area NO WATER IN THE POOL for swimming I was uncomfortable an I wasted my money I will never recommend anybody there!!!

While i slept the headboard fell on my face! I informed staff and no concern! Shower flooded and was dirty!

The wallpaper was ripping off the wall and the whole place was outdated and run down.

Great Staff Service. No Complaints Everything Was Fine.

The hotel was a dump, but then again we paid $50 a night... so honestly what can you expect from $50 a night. They don't have fridges in all the rooms and if you want one (if you're lucky to get one) its at an extra charge. I mean you truly get what you pay for with paying $50 a night. We weren't spending a lot of time at the hotel because we were going to a 2 day concert at Alpine Valley. We really just needed a cheap place to crash. I would for sure splurge and get a nicer place though- felt very dirty staying in that hotel.

it is a good hotel quite , clean very good staff close to some very good restaurents

It was busy and stressful but the hotel was nice and comfortable and clean I would go back for business but not for pleasure

It was a nice peaceful relaxing stay the man at the front desk was very polite and personable. No complaints overall

The front desk staff were very pleasant. They upgraded my room but the upgrade seemed average to me. There is no elevator, so I hope your luggage has wheels. I didn't like that I had to pull it up steps to get to the room. There is a lingering and awful smell to the hallway carpet. It was surprisingly quiet for the entire stay. The adjoined restaurant was very good. The best thing was the free airport shuttle and rate.

Kind of a dump, few hookers. Patio doors not secure. Shady ppl hanginger in lot.

Very nice now that it is motel 6. When it was days inn it was drama all the time.

I felt like I was walking into an episode of Breaking Bad. The clientele were awful, loud and sketchy. Besides the overwhelming stench of the lobby the rooms were horribly kept. Honestly, spend the extra $20.00 and stay somewhere else.

I did not have high expectations to start with, since the price was very low. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the AC works. Two problems with my room were that the two night-stand lights did not work, and there seemed to be a plumbing leak causing the carpet around the bathroom to become wet from underneath. Other than that it was a satisfactory experience. I would probably return, but business travelers may not find this acceptable.
