This property is run down and not clean. The check in was unfriendly and unprofessional. An added touch was the poor man who ran in barefoot and panting begging the hotel staff to call the police as he had just been mugged at inside the hotel. The woman at front desk barely flinched or showed any concern as it seemed to be a regular occurrence. Quite an experience for our children that were traveling with us.

We showed up at the property and were not told that they would be tearing the roof off above our heads at dawn. A tarp was down right outside our door and shingles and nails poured down all day. It was dangerous to walk out the door and to the car. Many guests were upset and staff was surly. No one offered to move us, to comp our night, or (better yet) to let us know the roofing plans before we moved in.
