    Nice staff. Thought we were booking a room with a view but alas there was no view. But overall the place was fine. We only had one night here as we were on our way down South.

    Misleading listing, poor service

    Let's start with the room. It was advertised as a 1 bedroom suite with king bed + sofabed. The bedroom had a queen bed, and the hotel staff informed me there are no king beds in any of the 1 bedroom suites. The bed was uncomfortable, the shower head was held in place with a rubber band, the wall-mounted TV was aimed at the ceiling (and not adjustable) and had wires dangling from it. Twice, I stepped on broken glass that was left on the floor. And the Wi-Fi was misconfigured, making it useless for my needs. All around, terrible, especially given the high price. This site also lists wi-fi and parking as free, but they are part of the $15 per night mandatory "resort fee". Let's be clear, this is a roadside inn, not a resort. These fees are shady at best and in a place like this, more of an outright lie. Don't be fooled by the listed rates. Both the bed and the "resort fee" complaints were dismissed by the staff, who had no interest in providing good customer service. Avoid this place. The only nice thing
