The room we had, while supposedly non-smoking, wreaked of stale cigarette smoke. The pillows also smelled of smoke. We tried spraying febreeze, but it didn't help much. There were little black hairs all over the bathroom and soap slime in the tub. The ac didn't work when we got there and we had to ask three times before they sent...

Our room had a terrible smell when we checked in. Like someone had just sprayed roach killer. The ventilation in the bathroom was covered in dust and rusted over. There was mold all over the bathroom ceiling. The chairs had holes in the material or were torn in some way. The a/c barely worked. Maintenance came once but the a/c...

I have stayed at this property multiple times and have never came close to experiencing the problems described in these recent reviews. My most recent visit over the holidays was no different. We traveled with several other families and none had the problems described in these posts. The Away Inn is a great place to stay, especially if traveling with...

My husband and I stayed here in December. We were eaten up by bedbugs the first night. At first, they blamed it on the hotel across the street. Then they suggested we brought them in with our luggage, which was ridiculous. The place was filthy. There were crumbs on the counter and in the cabinets and ants all inside the...

We stayed here for three days and wish we had booked another hotel. Our room smelled terrible when we checked in. It was supposedly a non smoking room but there was a strong smell of cigarette smoke. There was hair in the shower and mold growing in the corners of the bathroom. The refrigerator was filthy. The sheets were stained...

This place was by far our worst stay ever. When we entered our room, there was a terrible musty smell and odor of cigarette smoke. The sheets on the bed were stained. The manager was nasty to us when we asked for new sheets. There were crumbs and ants on the counter. The dishes had dried caked on food on...

When we checked into our room, there was a terrible stench of cigarette smoke. My husband killed three cockroaches the first half hour we were there. The tub was dirty with hairs everywhere, and had mold and mildew growing in the corners. There were still feces in the toilet. There were bed bugs. The police were called to break up...

When we checked in, our room had a musty smell and was filthy. The bedding and pillow cases were stained. There was a used bar of soap left in the tub and some type of slime on the bottom of the tub. The mattress cover and blankets had burn holes. When I pulled the covers from the bed down, the...

This hotel is in no way a three star hotel. Our room reeks of roach killer and the bedsheets are stained. Staff unable to say if any rooms don't reek of roach killer. Literally disgusting. No Star hotel. Avoid at all costs.

Our room was dirty and smelled like roach killer spray and tobacco. We had to wash all of our clothes to get the smell out. There were dead bugs all over the bathroom and black hair all over the shower. We found dead ants in the cabinets. The bed sheets were stained. The trash cans were overflowing. There was loud...
