Stay away
We booked online, but once we checked out our room we asked and received a refund. It is a very rundown establishment and the room smelled heavily of smoke, even though all the rooms are smoke-free. The room had stains on the carpet and furniture. The employee was very nice and worked with us, but we just could not stay here and be comfortable.

Both beds in our room was covered in dog hair. There was also a large, loud dog kept inside that barked everytime we made any type of noise. Someone got robbed the same night we were there. Would not recommend, stay in your car before you stay at this place
