Never stay here
No room was available when I got there even though I paid in advance on Hotels.com. Front desk was locked and had to use lobby phone. She was so rude.

We were never able to check in. At 6:30 p.m. approximately 30 minutes before we were to arrive (after a 5 hour car trip), the hotel called to tell us that there were no rooms and our reservation was cancelled.

It worked, but not well
This is a very basic hotel, but they will allow an 18 year old to check in. My son and his buddy planned a trip to visit his future college and they needed a place to stay overnight. They needed 2 beds, one bed was completely wrapped in plastic and then they had no sheets for the bed.

The initial room toilet wouldn't flush. Move to the next door roomand the shower head popped off and almost st4uck me in the head. The front desk mishandled my entire payment. Just a nightmare!

Never Again!
Wow! Don't go in with high expectations. This location is extremely short staffed. The check in process was hectic and took too long due to not enough staff and she literally said that they were double booked. It has no breakfast facilities available, no shower curtain, no coffee pot in rooms, not even samples of shampoo or conditioner. They claim to be a non- smoking hotel, but there was lots of smoking and not just cigarettes, you could tell there was weed and meth there too. The tv remote did not work, even after I changed the batteries. This place gave me the creeps! I will not return I seriously regret wasting my reward nights here, but am also glad I did not pay full price, because it definitely was not worth full price.
