The bathrooms were dirty and unsanitary! It took over an hour to check in because of a booking error. Room aeemed to be under construction. Light falling off of the headboard and let's not forget the beautiful screw that was holding the blinds shut and such a pain to get back on once it fell. Never again!

Dear 777betsyv, We are almost in our final stages of renovation and would like to invite all our guests to come and enjoy not only the service but the product they deserve in the very near future. I believe that you called central reservation to book the room after midnight and hence they booked you for next day. It is...

You can tell that they try, but it is so old and worn out that it just isn't able to be cleaned. The staff were very nice. It wasn't gross, but most people would not be satisfied especially for the price.

I really hate giving a review like this but this place was completely disgusting. The bed sheets and comforter were out of the 1950's. The carpet was old, worn, and torn in several places. The paint was coming off of the walls everywhere to include the bathtub so I didn't even feel comfortable taking a shower in it. There was...

So the lobby nice. So was the woman at the door. And the pool. Then i got to the room via the rusty broken stairs and wish i had a black light to avoid any DNA from hookers, crack heads and any other vile creatures that may have stayed there. Room 221 to be exact. There were stains on every...

The hotel was easy to get to. I couldn't get the door open on the original room. The second room opened easily. No ice in the outside ice machine.

Very outdated and dirty, our shoes stuck to the floor in the bathroom, the toilet ran constantly, I had to take the tank lid off to make it flush. During the check out the front desk gal was chomping on an apple.. I told her about the toilet. But, I'm sure it has been like that for quite sometime.. I...
