We’ve stayed here often over the eight years that our daughter lived in Kent. Very happy until this first time after the pandemic. Mistakes at check-in, peeling paint in our bathroom, broken switches on two lamps, and the draperies were fixed in place so we could not close them over the sheets: no privacy and light coming through the window all night. Glad we got our daughter moved so we won’t stay here again.

The pillows on the bed are absolutely worthless - bring your own unless you like sleeping basically without them!

We have stayed there before. Nice enough place but could use some upgrades. They have a nice pool area for kids but quests couldnt use it the night we stayed because they had rented it out for a party. To me that doesn't seem right to me because you pay to have a pool in your motel fee.

I would just go across the st to the Hampton
Furniture in the room had scratches on the surfaces, the coffee table had different color nail polish marks all over it.The moment my husband and I laid down in the bed, it squeaked extremely loud, and any time we would roll over or move in it, almost as if kids had jumped in it so much, they had broke it and no one had bothered to fix it. We had a large group in town for a marine corp reunion, so we asked about renting the conference room so we could have a place to gather instead of crowding into a hotel room and we were told the rent times were only 4 hour increments either in the morning or at night, only for 4 hours and only until 10pm for $100, which did not work for us. We also asked for our rooms to be next to each other, which we were told that could definitely be done, and all they did was put us on the same floor. Also, to use the pool, you have to call and book over the phone, which doesn’t say anywhere on this app. I will say, the room was at least clean.
