Family stayed here 2 weeks. WORST MISTAKE EVER! The hotel had us on the top floor, WHICH WAS CONTAMINATED WITH BLACK MOLD. The beds were very comfortable, but be warned that the whole hotel is contaminated with bugs of all types. The mini fridges were the best item in the whole room, until we used it and found maggots the... More

Very run down facility, but we figured that out when booking. Part that ticked me off was that I booked room and had a credit card to hold it and were to pay on arrival. We checked in plenty early enough and I was going to actually charge on a different card from what I used to hold the room.... More

The hotel is under renovation, so some rooms are more finished than the others. We were in adjoining rooms. One room had horrible old mattresses but the bathroom had no issues. The other had the better mattresses, but the toilet wouldn't flush and the sink dripped. Both rooms had old (not flat screen) tvs and views of the still under... More

The room was dirty. There was no place to hang your cloths. The furniture was broken. The front desk had a dog that they forgot in the bathroom and when I went in to use the bathroom in the lobby it barked at me and scared me.

This is a scary place! Grass uncut, musty/moldy smell upon entering the place. The guy at the front desk had a stained, hole ridden shirt on. We had made reservations on line and when I didn't get my confirmation# email, I called to confirm reservation, which they couldn't see so I made another one over the phone. When we got... More

Needed a room to sleep in after a long day on the road. Got to the hotel, the person at the desk was very friendly. The room is a good size, clean and the breakfast was very nice. For $50 it was a wonderful value. The rooms need some updating, but a very comfortable stay for the price.

Children staying here, with no hot water. NOTHING advertised about this hotel is true. No breakfast, horrible customer service, and everything is falling apart. Full of mood and very dangerous. Stayed for one night and got out fast. Please, do not stay here!!
