I left immediately. They billed me anyway. WAs disgusting

Everything had that old smoke smell. I only stayed 1 night and even my clothes that were packed picked it up. Likes of shady characters

I booked with Orbitz because I trusted you to screen your hotels. I did not need anything fancy. Just a good clean room. This hotel was terrible. My wife held her nose going to and from our room it smelled so bad. The bath towel rack was pulled off the wall on one end without repair. The beds were uncomfortable. The hotel was not clean. Called ahead for directions. The front desk was unable to give me directions to their hotel within the city. Drove a long time following incorrect directions. This hotel should not be on your listings. I would have walked out but the room was already paid so I was stuck.

Dryer broken, ice machine out of service A waffle or sugar cereal w\ toast, no bagel, roll, yogurt or non sugar cereal. Carpet sticky to walk on, hair in bed from dogs Room smelled no air did get new room Staff was friendly & tried to help but a lot needs to change here

It was nice !!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. Reserved a suite and given a regular room upon arrival at same price. 2. No power to frig and tv. Had to run some one down to fix. 3. 2 police cars with lights on the first evening to break up a fight outside. 4. Could not gain access to my room by nearest door. Had to use front door only. 5. Outside area dirty in front of hotel. Cigarette butts and trash all over. 6. My room key won't work half the time. Had to get it teletext at the front desk 3 times. The worst stay in my life at any hotel. Besides. I checked out early with no refund. Stay some where else, not here.

Found dog food in my room. The hotel smelled. I would not stay here again.

Hoped the room would be nicer. Missing lightbulbs, dirty bedspread.

The hotel staff was rude, the door was broken, the room was dirty. There was a hairball the size of a golf ball in the bathroom floor, so who knows when they cleaned it last. You could hear through the walls. There was dirt in the drawers and it stunk terribly. I've stayed in places that were old, but they didn't stink and were at least clean. They had a no refund policy so we couldn't get our money back, but it was so bad we left and went to a different hotel. I would never suggest this place to anyone! Absolutely disgusting.

At 3 AM or so a group of women came in, very loud. Stayed in the hall ways for about an hour and left. Talked about their evening, their drug use, etc... Obviously not guest of the hotel. Hotel room was nice, but had lighting issues in the bathrooms, you could see the electrical outlets and the dirt in the ceiling. Very unstable location for my wife and I to stay at.

The whole hotel smells like cigarettes. The staff is not friendly. We didn't have any towels in our room, and the sheets had stains on them. The people that stay in the hotel all look like they are on drugs. I forgot a garment bag so I went back to get it the afternoon we had checked out. They said it was locked in the storage room and only the cleaning staff had access. I called the following day to see if they would sent it back; I even offered to pay for it and they said no and that I would have to drive all the way back to get it. WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED AT. DO NOT BOOK A ROOM THERE.

Bed smelled funny. Nothing too extravagant, need more blankets and pillows for the beds that they offer you.

This was the worst terrible experience I've ever had at a hotel !!!! I slept in my car it was so bad and it was 10 below that night . The pool didn't even work it was out of order the ceilings falling down there was sticky stuff on the table it was so disgusting !!!!!!!

This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. We got into the room and it was cold. Then when the door closed there was a towel laying on the floor behind the door. We turned the heat up and got nothing. We asked about that and the guy at the front desk told us that the heat did not come on until 8pm. Mind you this is 7pm and it is 59 degrees outside. We ended up with no heat all nite. The room did not get above about 60 maybe 63. We thought the pool area would be a good place to hang out for awhile. My granddaughter who will swim in almost any temp water went in for about 5 minutes and was done. Mind you she is a fish around water. The pool was cold and the supposed hot tub was even colder. The pool was also dirty.we went back to the room turned on the bathroom warming light, which at least warmed the bathroom, and took a warm shower. Then wrapped in blankets and watched tv. The beds were another story. The mattresses were so hard and uncomfortable. I found out why when I pulled the sheet off and literally the mattress was falling apart. I really don't think you should be promoting this hotel on your website. One of your people should go there unannounced and check it out. It is really scraping the bottom of the barrel with this hotel.

The motel was not as advertised. There was no in-room fridge, microwave or even a coffee maker. There was coffee for a coffee maker but no coffee maker. The linens were old and worn. The place was cold. there was no ability to control the room temperature inside the room. i asked for heat but was told that they couldn't switch over to heat yet. The AC ran the entire time I was there. I'm from AZ so MN was cold to me especially at night. They did give me extra blankets but I would have liked heat in the room.

It took a half an hour to try and make the key, the shower head was on the hardest setting and couldn't change it, the faucet could be pulled out from the wall, the faucet for the sink leaked water all over the floor,the air conditioners knob was missing and couldn't turn it off, the freezer had four inches of ice. The hotel is under construction and they should have closed that room.

The hotel was not cleaned like it should be it had a lot of stained carpets and sticky carpets at that. The continental breakfast was not what they said it would be. Some people were rude too.

Needed a cheap hotel for one night. This one was perfect. Wasn't looking for a 5 star hotel

The hotel was really dirty. My bed sheets were covered in black hairs.. Not only in one spot but the entire bed... When I told to the manager about it he claimed that pets are not allowed in that room so he didn't understand why there would be hairs all over the sheets. The sheets weren't changed from the previous guest or who knows why. I would never refer anyone to this hotel or stay there again.

Nothing special carpet needs shampooed and working pop and washing machines. Staff are jerks and very inconsiderate. We will not be back
