1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had the AC running on the highest setting and lowest temperature but the room never got below 73. The pool/bar supposed to be open until 11 but both had lights off and seemed closed at 9 pm. The free breakfast was Burger King coupons. Gross. The hotel was not the cleanest either. Overall, would not stay again at all.

4/5 Good

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
When we got to the hotel, we went to check out the hot tub and it was actually colder than the water temperature in the pool. We let someone know about it before we left to do our activities for the day. By the time we returned to the hotel, they had the problem fixed and it was just a matter of waiting for the hot tub to reach the proper temperature.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness
Did not have a comfortable bed and there was no blow dryer. Did not like the shampoo conditioner brand. Liked the cleanliness and appearance of room and lobby. Time to reinstate the continental breakfast.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
There was no elevator to the second floor. The second floor I was told had all the King beds so my handicap wife and to climb the stairs to the room. They advertised a breakfast but did not have one. They said they give out burger king coupons but were always locked in the office and no one seemed to have a key to access them. Room was ok. Parking was ok. Stairs were long.

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Liked nothing about the place. Strong moldy smell. Fire alarm went off Friday and Saturday nights prompting us to leave at 12:30 a.m. on Sunday morning and they would not give us our money back. It was the most horrible experience we have ever had at a hotel. Never, never again with AmericInn Grimes or Expedia.
