Recent guest reviews
From the in-operable toilet in our room to the daisy chain of power connections in the small breakfast room next to the pool, this place is pretty sub standard. The A/C in the breakfast room was not working well (it was a window unit) and in the middle of someone making a waffle all of the power along the wall of appliances went out. I know "stuff happens" sometimes but I get the sense that "stuff happens" here a lot. The room itself was not bad about what I would expect for the $50 I spent on Priceline. Given the experience I had I wouldn't spend my money here again.
DISGUSTING! Worst and dirtiest hotel we have ever stayed at! Rather have had my family sleep in our mini-van. That place needs to be condemned! Entire hotel smelled like smoke. I thought our bathtub would fall thru to the level below us.... dirty dirty dirty. Literally came home and vacuumed out ALL of our bags, luggage, etc.
I took a gamble reserving rooms here. It was a midway point to stop on our route and I wish I would have slept in the car instead. We arrived at midnight and the hotel staff person to check us in was very friendly. We got to our rooms and they were hot and stuffy. The carpet was warped, the TV didn't work in one room and the bathroom was disgusting. Where the carpet was warping the floor was separated underneath. I do not know if the stains in the tub are just so bad they can't be removed or if the cleaning crew just doesn't care. If we all were not so tired after our long drive we would have asked for a refund and moved on. The owners need to put money into this hotel. I highly recommend that you spend a few more dollars and go some place else. I ended up getting the flu 4 days after my stay here. I'm not saying I picked something up from the hotel but as I sit here typing and recalling the conditions, it makes me wonder.
We booked this hotel for Morton Pumpkin Fest. First room air did not work. Second room TV did not work but since air was working and we were exhausted we stayed. Next morning found shower was disgusting, toilet did not flush properly, coffee machine and dryer did not work. Went to take morning swim. No way slime covered the bottom of the pool. Side door to hotel opens without card key so anyone could get in.
Be wary of the positive reviews of this hotel. Our group reserved 6 rooms total, and each one was filthier than the last. No matter what class hotel it is or how old it is, it should be clean. There was mold under the toilet rim, crud in the tub, toothpaste globs on the counter, stains on the sheets, moldy refrigerators, sticky, greasy surfaces everywhere, dust and cobwebs so thick it is clear they have not cleaned in ages. I doubt they have a cleaning staff. The owner is probably trying to manage it on her own. Insufficient for a booked hotel! 2 members of our party slept in the car both nights because there were flea eggs in their sheets and the hotel had no replacement sheets! I will be calling the health department. Don't even get me started on the "continental breakfast."
This is a low end 2 star hotel. Do not expect much. Plus: large room; friendly concerned staff; large fridge and microwave; plenty parking. Minus: Scary Squeaky Tub; No hot water in shower; poor quality breakfast; Old tube TV and DVR that barely worked; tiny thin towels; yellow water in toilet and shower; No Elevator.
We stayed here for a couple of weeks while my husband worked at the caterpillar plant. The hall ways were hot, vending machines did not work, and the breakfast sucked. We didn't try the pool out but saw some people swimming, it didn't seem too bad. The beds weren't too bad either and it was the first hotel I've ever stayed in that the pillows wouldn't go flat on you. The staff was friendly and the parking lot was spacious.
Room was very warm. AC had not been on for a while. It took most of the night to cool the room down. AC was very loud. Door clicked every time someone opened the main door to the hotel at bottom of stairs causing me to wake multiple times during the night. People smoking outside back of pool until late into the night. Bathroom needed some work on tub area curtain almost falling off wall. Soap had been in basket for a long time. TV worked well. Room was clean.
Spend the extra cash and stay somewhere else!!!!! The tap water is brown, the mattresses are terrible, our alarm clock is wired up with duck tape, there are loose tiles in the bathroom floor, the shower sounds like it's going to fall through the floor, the waffle maker doesn't cook waffles through leaving runny batter in the middle, pillows are stained yellow from sweaty heads and to top it off the pool ladder fell off into the pool because someone tried to glue it down when the bolts rusted off. How is this place not condemned??????
Price was reasonable, room very clean. Management was behind the desk he took very good care of my family with are needs. The pool I would give 2 stars could be more cleaner. All around its very pleasant. Food joints around along with walmart.
