2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
No refund when weather prevented us from going.

4/5 Good

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
The room was fine for a weekend trip to visit family. It was relatively clean, the staff was very helpful, the bed didn't kill my back. Would have been nice to avoid the overwhelming smell of marijuana in the hallways (on the non-smoking side of the hotel) for my 8 year old with asthma. There were a few sketchy folks lurking around the area, but I guess that isn't the fault of the hotel. Overall, not bad for the price.

Dogs barking all night. Beds from the 70's. Smells pretty bad. Paper thin walls. Our doors didn't work properly. Closer to a Motel 6 basically.

Dusty and a bit raggedy. It was cheapest in the area but I guess you get what you pay for. People also live there and walk the halls like it’s their house. Not for me.
