The hotel is clearly a party hotel. I only needed somewhere to crash for a few hours waiting for a plane. I walked into the room, none of the lights worked, there was hair all over the mattress and people partying all around me. I got in my car and left! Save yourself the trouble and possible bed bug infestation and go elsewhere

Needs to be remodeled! My room was very old looking and out dated. Walls were very thins. I heard everything in the next room. Tub drained very slow. Toilet runs all day. Random people knocking on the door all times of the night. I would NOT recommend.

Rooms smell like cigarette smoke and plenty there was a drug deal happening just outside my room. This place is bad news

03/15/20 we were getting ready for bed and a knock on the door got us up, only to find an employee telling us we had to change rooms @ 10:45 pm to a pet friendly room we were dumfounded, because when I made the reservation online, pet friendly was one of the important factors. But as I was told " this this is a pet friendly hotel, just not a pet friendly room. After 3 days. So lets just say we are quite upset over this situation. My husband and I are both disabled and was very much put out by being treated this way.

Place is a hell hole with sketchy characters all over the place. More like a short stay motel if you ask me. My room was gross and the AC blew warm air. The place is a dump stay far away

This place is disgusting! Dirty everything! Glad this was just an overnight stay. Its smells of mildew. I slept fully clothed. My friend couldnt stay in her room bc its was full of roaches. Staff said they had no clue and had never been in the rooms. They place should be closed!

Very good clean room and amenties good security and maids

Clean, updated rooms - except for the abundance of cockroaches. German variety, not palmetto. Otherwise great room for the rate.

You get what you paid for and that's a room. The microwave and a/c didnt work. Towels were dirty and sparsely given, but the bed was comfy. If you just need a crash pad with free breakfast, this is the place

The outside is nicely renovated. However, there were roaches in the room. The bathroom needed a serious retailing and the room smelt musky

Staff friendly ....charge deposit ...... ithing else

This hotel shouldn’t be open. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to this place.

I stay there often. That alone says that I like the place. The staff has gotten to know me, and is aware that I prefer a ground floor room. They assign me one. That impressed me. Being a regular guests, I am still required to put down a $100.00 security deposit each time. I feel as if that shoul waived.

Not upp front anout deposits Dirty inlit stsr Rude staff

I didnt like that the housekeeper just opened my door room without knocking as I was still sleeping

Toilet ran a long time before fillinh up. Heater never blew warm air Sink was extremely slow draining.

Loved it Newly constructed Quiet Clase to everything Now the place will get populat and roon rates will go up.
