Recent guest reviews

The room had mold covering 1/4 of the ceiling, feces on the inside door jam into the bathroom, and stank of stale cigarettes, body odor, and wet wood rot. The outdoor parking area was unkempt and unsafe. Avoid this hotel at all costs. The entire next day my lungs ached from the mold.

Quiet night, inside hall to get to oyr room, so it kept the fireworks noise out. Breakfast buffet was scrumptious. More than we expected. Everything from cold cereal, fresh fruit, muffins, waffle machines for DIY, yogurts, juice and milk, bread and bagel varieties and s toaster. Exactly what we needed after 10 Days of travel and hiking. Making note of this place to stop again as our daughter is in Denver, so will be making this trip more often.

First, there was no remote to the TV and it took staff almost an hour to bring us one. Then the kids discovered a pile of vomit on the side of the bed that hadn't been cleaned up. When we reported it they said that they would go get the shampooer. He then returned almost an hour later stating that he couldn't find the shampooer. Finally, at 1:30 in the morning my husband went down to the front desk and asked if they intended on cleaning the vomit and the staff giggled before they said there was no shampooer. He then said that they better move us rooms. Staff then showed up at 2:00 am with new room keys and we had to wake up kids and move. The next room wasn't any better. Light bulbs burnt out and everything was damp. The washer and dryer were broken and there were alot of shady characters roaming the parking lot at night. I wouldn't recommend that anyone stay in this hotel. It was terrible!!!

it was so run down and smelled of mold. We had to cancell our second night and find a new hotel. Bar is closed and hot tub didn't work. Air conditioner didnt work.

We 8 rooms for a family reunion. Price was cheap and we knew the hotel was older. The check in staff was very friendly. The beds slept good. We did have issues with the phones not working on the third floor which was frustrating since you couldn't call the front desk. One room had a problem with the heat/air so they had to change rooms. One room had a non-working TV but the maintenance man quickly brought in a replacement. Couple rooms had fire alarms that kept chirping so maintenance man replaced batteries. The free continental breakfast was nice. The hotel is in need up updating i.e. flat screen TVs and telephone system. However, Based on the price we paid and how little time we were in our rooms, I think we received value for the price.

Mold on bathroom ceiling above tub. Tub floor was indented. Shower knob and faucet were loose and separated from wall. Beds had huge intentions in middle of bed. So uncomfortable. Website said queens they were full beds. You could hear every noise from other guest. I will not stay here again !

My ratings are considering the cost of the room. Its no JW Marriott, but it is a perfectly fine hotel at a low price. Room was clean and comfortable. Bed was good.

Cleaning staff did not return in a ring my wife left....really sad place. Even $45 a night was too much. Room was really nasty and smelled terrible......yikes!

The hotel itself looks abandoned from the road. Pot holes in the parking lot so big they could fit whole cars. Check in was easy and fast, we had a suite and it ended up just being a room with a king bed and refrigerator/microwave. Tv was an old tube from the 90s, stains on sticky carpet, furniture and inside lamp shades and on walls. Light bulbs out, toilet water ran nonstop. When walking around the actual hotel it was eerily quiet, and seemed we were the only occupants. The restaurant was closed, drinking fountains out of order, lights weren't even turned on in the main areas of the hotel adding to the overall weird factor. Wifi was not working, hot tub jets weren't working, the list goes on. Will never stay here again, the bed was extremely comfortable and that's the only good thing about the hotel.

Upon arrival you are greeted with 20+ years of mildew stinch in your face. After turning down our first room given to us as it was a single bed-when we booked a double room and have a family of 5...we were given keys to a 2nd room, which upon our arrival our daughter immediately got sick b/c of the smell alone. Then we were given a master room key to basically walk around and pick b/wn 3 rooms of our choice. We picked the least smelly room-and only remained in the hotel as we were part of a wedding party that was all there. Thru the night my children, husband and myself coughed and were challenged with breathing in the damp, mildewy air...so much so that immediately upon waking up the next morning, we packed and got the heck out of there. It was disgusting and I would recommend NOONE stay there, unless they happen to be w/out a nose and/or don't need to breathe. GROSS.

Will stay again. Has a pool, excercise room, courtyard, resturaunt, and more.

Well the room was very outdated. Still had the old fashion boobtube tvs. The bedding still felt a little wet. The AC was on high all night and even after moving to a new room the air still wasn't very cold. The staff was very friendly and helpful but overall the hotel just needed a lot of updates.

The hotel has a pool with a slide, hot tub, exercise room, resturaunt, and courtyard. Grwat place for family or individual to stay. Really dont have to leave building if you do want to.

The hotel stay was wonderful. The front desk personnel was great. I really enjoyed my stay there and I will be coming back that was my second stay at this hotel and I will be returning.

I really enjoy my stay the beds was so soft, frontend worker was nice. I will return again

Front desk was extremely nice when we asked to move rooms because the first one was not what we were expecting. The second room had some mold growing in the bathroom and yet again, the front desk was very understanding in moving us again. The third room we tried was just right :) The breakfast was pretty good and the pool was nice during the day until around 5:00 when tons of kids over ran it and no parents around to enforce the rules! Overall it was a decent stay.

The bed was not comfortable. We rolled towards the center of the bed because the mattress was hard on the perimeter & sank down in the center. The breakfast was limited. The TV had no movies to purchase. The bathroom sink was very small. Only one person could use it at a time. One of the upfront personnel hopped over the front counter with a cigarette in her mouth for a smoke break. The hotel needs updating. Would definitely stay somewhere newer & more updated next time.

Satisfied with everything except the breakfast was below satisfactory.

I've stayed here twice now and it is a pretty good bang for your buck. Staff is pretty friendly and there is a nice bar/grill in the hotel. Pool isn't great. Definitely book online though rooms are twice as expensive in person
