Do not stay at this hotel. Rooms are filthy and smell. The toilet was leaking all over the floor and we saw bedbugs. Left after about 30 minutes. We got there at 11 PM after driving for nine hours. Chose to drive another 2 hours rather than stay here. They did agree to refund our payment, which I appreciated. Staff was friendly and helpful with that.

The hotel was horrible, not maintained well. peeling paint, shower looked like someone rebuilt a car engine in it, smelled....

Older hotel with part of a face lift but not much attention to detail.

First impression very bad as clerk coped attitude after telling me she had no rooms. I took it to mean that they lost my reservationen, som I asked if I should go to a different hotel. She answered "I don't care, but we are keeping your deposit." Once we realized she was trying to say the rooms were not ready, we left and returned later. After we checked in I looged into my credit card account and saw they charged me for the stay even though I had paid cash. Another visit to the lobby to explain the entire situation to an employee only in her third week. I asked to speak to speakto the manager and she said he was not there and she would track him down. We finally got the double payment resolved, but took the better part of 2 hours back and forth.

The pictures on the internet make this place look semi-respectable, however it is not. My first room had chipped drywall, broken door frame going into the bathroom and a TV from the early to mid 1990's. The sign out front said "new rooms, HD TV, etc." I packed my bags the next morning and told them I'd like one of those rooms. The staff was friendly and that evening I got a different room. This one was still a hole although the TV was newer and the cosmetic appearance not as bad. I guess the price range attracts some less than stellar clientele because I was awakened at 3:00 in the morning one night by a loud altercation outside of my room. Police were called. Overall this place is one step above a crack house and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I like Days Inn but this stay wasn't as clean as my first stay. I will keep staying there unless I get another bad experience.

We stayed 2 nights. The bed was comfortable. However the room itself is old, different things needed to be fix, carpets need to be clean. When we come back to at the end of day our housekeeper only made our bed, bathroom wasn't clean.

I stayed two nights and I had worse experience. First night we noticed lot at bedbugs with poor cleaning in the room and bed smell. I also changed three rooms with no change. I called Orbitz to cancel my reservation but hotel manager gave me another room for next night but results were same

room what suppose to be non smoking it was not., even thought the glued on wood sign says it was non smoking. I have pictures that I took the night I arrived at 7 pm. The staff laughed at me the manager was nowhere to be found he was doing something more important. I slept in my rental car in the parking lot and then showered in the room that morning. no one even answered the phone. The service kid on the golf car ignored my request for help 3 times. I did not know what to do no hotels close by that night I could go to. I had a business meeting the next morning that was very important. I went in the next morning to ask for a rate reduction due to the room being dirty, floor, countertop, shower etc. they laughed and said that I could check out and that was it. they said the manager would call me, no surprise they did not. When I done with my meeting I called to see if they had come to a decision . surprise the manger still wasn't in I would have to wait well its Monday today and not call. Not surprised. I never got the refund for the room I did not sleep in, offered to pay for the shower thinking that was very fare on my part. I was still stiff from the car seat I slept in that night before. I would no use this hotel

Hotel was nice. Pool was clean. We did have one problem with someone pounding on either our door or the one next door at 9 and at 10 p.m. Called the front desk and the worker stated she would watch the hallway by way of the hotel cameras. Nothing happened after that

My stay was ok. The room was clean. The bathroom needs a bit of upgrading with the popcorn peeling off. The amenities such as the refrigerator, microwave and pressing iron were good. The reception of cellphone is poor and the Internet is really slow. The price was more than I would have wanted to pay.

Staff was helpful. Nice pool. Clean room. Easy to find. Looks like they may be doing some remodeling.

The trip somewhat met our expectations. The motel is in the process of being remodeled. The shower needed to be fixed.

The room was clean, but motel is older. Pillow smelled like smoke (was a smoke free room). Breakfast was almost none existent.

The hotel is being renovated. It will be nive when completrd. My room was in the wing that was being worked on. As is usual in that situation, there are bugs. There was also a musty odor in the hallway I saw a bug in the bathroom & a couple of hairs in the sink & shower. Staff very nice & changed room to the one next door...in same condition. Due to time constraints, I couldn't change hotel's. The bed was comfortable & clean though.

All I can say is Hotel Rescue needs to visit this place. Bathroom was clean but the bubbling walls and shower head height was for midgets! The place needs a complete renovation and updates. The hotel clerk was rude and housekeeping forgot something everyday.

The reception staff were good. The room was okay for the money. The location made visiting places accessible. Breakfast is made late. People eat previous days supply. The dining chairs were pulled over the tables maybe in a bid to discourage people from coming in for breakfast.

I checked in, went to the room and left after seeing live roaches, a leaky faucet, stained rusty tub with broken tiles,an uneven hard bed with thin threadbare covers and to top it off it reeked of smoke when I specifically asked for non smoking due to my allergies. I left, the girl up front said she couldnt return money because I bought it from internet. I shall never stay at these hotels.

Interesting. Helpful and friendly staff..A lot of good renovations in the hotel. A lot of good site seeing to go from the hotel.

A lot of renovations taking place. Detached, safe and quiet for good rest. Pleasant staff.
