Traveled with family and small children, Traveled with partner, Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Honestly this was a nightmare. Don’t know where to even start the pictures are very different from the actual reality. This hotel looks like a rundown motel, it smells like mold,no toilet paper,no hot water,tv didn’t work. They still charged me a $100 deposit that hasn’t been refunded into my account. Never ever again would I stay here

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Owner is very rude. First room was a smoke saturated. They made me sign a statement I would not smoke in the room ( a little insulting). 2nd room was had also been smoked in, smell was not as bad. Door chain was missing and no hair dryer. They show in the amenities that hair dryers were included in the web site. They also advertise the free breakfast. There is no breakfast. False advertising on owners part. I have been in this property many times in the past 34 years. The place is run down. When I asked about the hair dryer and Breakfast, he told me to ask Expedia. His web site needs to be corrected if he does not provide the services/amenities. As long as he is the owner I will not be staying in his property.

This property should be taken off Expedia's list. Nothing worked in the room, TV controller (only one channel), phone in the room, A/C was insufficient to cool the room, etc. This wasn't the worst property I have ever stayed in, but it is in the top 10.
