At check in I was told I couldn't have the room by the office I requested when I called to verify my reservation made online. As I drove up to room 150 there was a man bumming smokes who was drunk or high on something. In an hour walking around the room with sock feet I realized the bottom of my socks were filthy. It looked like the floor hadn't been mopped in many weeks. There was what appeared to be splattered blood droplets on the wall and the desk lamp shade. The mirror decor in the room was broken and hadn't been repaired, replaced or just removed. One of the bedside lamp shades had a black mold growing on it. There was no vent fan in the bathroom and no way to open the window due to the height of the window above to tub. There was a huge stain on the coverlet/ bedspread on the bed. The door had a security chain but it had been broken into before by the way it was bent. The chair at the desk was literally in shreds across the front of the seat. The lavatory sink where we were to brush our teeth and wash our hands would not drain properly. After being in the room about two hours three police cars came pulling up and took the man away who had been walking around high or drunk talking to people and trying to bum cigarettes. I called the front office and was told there was nothing they could do about moving me to a different room closer to the office due to my having my dog with me. To top it all off the breakfast included was a prepackaged muffin.

Very clean

the price was afforable but the room floor was so so dirty the noise was horrible and the area had too much traffic fussing from upstairs, dog barking we couldnt rest the back area was bad i asked for a lower floor room because my husband is a disable vet,.they put me on the back we were not happy,i made it earlier enough to get a better choice of a room.i will not stay here again.i feel as if we should get a refund back or something for this horrible two night stay,

Nothing just a quick stop for rest on way to destination didn’t even sleep at all so basically paid for a room and sat would not recommend

It had bed bugs i got bit up by them i couldnt sleep had to be up at 530 no sleep and had ro work

They are awesome and very very clean I am soooo happy with my stay each and every time

This is my husband's second stay at this hotel for business purposes and they are VERY happy! The rooms are clean and the staff has been very friendly!

It was a cool place. Nothing their fault. They can't help who stays there.

Its a nice hotel but the restroom arr bad and the staff also and the beds also .

I went in the room there was hair on pillows and sheets the floor was dirty. I couldn’t sleep all night next door was a party people doing drugs right outside my door the worst experience I’ve ever had the place was trashy and what was bad enough I had booked it for 3 days and was told couldn’t get refund

For the price I puked was well worth it. Not a stay

Very clean room. Property is clean and we'll lit at night. Pool is clean . If you need anything they respond quickly. Food is excellent.

Location, kind of country setting and loved hearing the birds chirping outside the window in the morning.

Staff was very friendly. The room was very nice, could have been a little cleaner.

New and clean. Good breakfast. Professional staff. Great location

Dear Lisa, I want to first thank you for taking your time to review us this let's us know how we are doing and where we can improve. I looked back into notes from the days of your stay and yes unfortunately we did had a little issue with a guest that was immediately removed from property and no further issues occurred that night. That day we were sold out and it was impossible to move you into another pet friendly room. We dont have any notes of any other issues. Due to COVID we have a limed breakfast of Danish, muffins, coffee and juice. I do however apologize for everything and thank you for your time.
