The property looked nice at first glance and the person at the front desk was super friendly. We had booked a King Suite with Jacuzzi, non-smoking. As soon as we walked in the door we were hit with the stench of stale cigarette smoke. As for the "suite," the only thing even remotely resembling suite-like status was the derelict sofa, which was so run-down one would dare not sit on it. Tiles were falling off the wall separating the room from the bath, and the sliding window (on the same wall) was scratched and had a broken handle. The jacuzzi leaked water, the toilet was askew, and that was it for us. We cancelled our reservation and went to a much nicer hotel down the road -- for the same price.
I should note that my wife and I have criss-crossed the US four times in the last three years, and this is absolutely the worst hotel we have ever encountered. It is the only time we have ever found a hotel so bad that we were unwilling to stay in it.
