2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Huey is a great manager and has developed a strong staff. Huey's people skills and attention to customers is excellent.

Hotel Computer not working. ☹️ Breakfast could use more fruit besides red apples and some bagels. Cream cheese was available, but no bagels. ( just small ones would be great)

The hotel was clean but a little tired. The breakfast was good.

Previous reviews made it seem like this was a good choice for a one night stay. And it was okay, but no better than okay. * The one and only luggage cart was barely functional and held together with zip ties. * If you sit on the foot of the bed, the head comes flying up. (And not because of extreme weight, I’m 150lbs.) * Uncomfortable mattresses with only two pillows per bed. * The air conditioning unit was placed directly under the window, so the wind from it would flap the curtain around not very loudly, but still annoyingly. * The chairs at the table were so wobbly I was afraid they’d break. Just needs to be tightened, but shows a lack of maintenance effort. * WIFI WAS SO SLOW I COULDNT EVEN GET IT TO CONNECT AT ALL. It is password protected and would redirect you to their site to enter their code, but the connection was so slow, it would time out before it could finish its redirect! * TV channels were fuzzy - annnoying but we made do. So, not terrible, but certainly far from great. It was clean. And staff was not unfriendly. That’s what you get.

When we arrived, the sheets on the bed were dirty with cigarette ashes. The fold out couch for the kids was broken - wouldnt' even fold out properly. Dead roaches in the bathroom floor. Ice machine broken. Elevator out of order. Would not recommend this hotel.

Clean, convenient to the University and very friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again.

every things is ok, strong bleach smell from the blanket sheet.

Pay for hotel online upon arrival was charged an additional $23.00 pet charge. This not disclosed online.

Stayed up there for a softball tournament. Stayed 2 days. Very quiet, nice, clean rooms. Breakfast was nice, literally next to the cracker barrel if you prefer a full breakfast. Staff was super nice and friendly. Will definitely stay again for the next tournament.

We were mid ways of our eight and a half hour destination, and this hotel was not off the beaten path, very easy to find. Check in was quick and easy. Staff was very friendly.

Hotel was renovated but still clearly aged. The first room we were checked into smelled of old cigarette smoke and the bed was way off being level. Immediately complained: staff was very apologetic and accomodating, and we were put into a different room. Bed was ok, pillows were 5 inches thick and super hard... difficult to really get comfortable. And the bedding and pillows smelled of old cigarette smoke. Next day we independently reported feeling like there were little "creepy crawlies" on our faces during the night. No bites that we've found... Breakfast was very basic and we opted out to go to a fast food restaurant instead. We won't be staying there again!!!!!!!!!

This hotel is old and had a smell to it when you walk into the lobby it smells old. No pool, the pool had beed filled in with concrete.

I’m sorry you didn’t have a great experience. I would have hoped that our quick response to all of you issues would have turned your experience around. We are completly non-smoking property so when you reported the marks on your sheets we quickly replaced them. Upon further inspection it was not ashes but a permanent marker stain. Also, when I personally inspected the fold out that one of the screws had been knocked out and once I replaced it the bed fit for use. I can not attest to the bugs because it was unreported. I’m sorry that you were affected by elevator and ice machine but those items have been repaired.
