The rating of the hotel was deceiving. It is NOT a 3.8 star Hotel. It is not even a nice Motel. The room was not cleaned dust all over the room Problem keeping key card working. No lock on the sliding glass door, They used a dowel to keep the door locked. Property unpainted and lack of up keep. Rooms out dated. Unsafe place to stay.

We checked out early only stayed one night. The front desk lady was rude I asked if our room was ready she looked down upon Expedia customers. “Oh you booked with Expedia” The room is disgusting. The telephone number to the front desk is a joke no live person your on your own after check in. Your afraid to ask for anything at the front desk she is not nice. Looks down upon people who book with Expedia but it’s the only website I trust they let you post real honest reviews.
