Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Mouse in room, remote did not work, dirty, hole in bed cover. Staff did nothing to help the situation. Twice they said they would come to fix remote. Did not show up.

They don’t know how to clean the rooms( small poop stains on the wall) and the shower was broken. No one was ever at the front desk and my key card kept getting rejected and I had to keep getting a new one. I paid for a queen bed and I got a room with two queen beds which took up way to much space and when I asked they gave me the wrong room they said that it’s no extra rooms. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to stay there.

I EXPECT A REFUND! I asked for a room on the first floor - the gentleman behind the desk said that he reserves them for senior citizens - I AM A SENIOR CITIZEN! I told him politely that I was a senior citizen and he ignored me. He then gave me a room on the 2nd floor - I asked if he had an elevator and he said yes, they had one. I had to walk up a flight of stairs - having found no elevator. When I went back to the front desk to ask where the elevator was - he said, "oh, no, we have stairs" it was at that point that I retrieved what I had put in the room and put the key on the from desk and promptly left to find a hotel down the street. I would not recommend this place to anyone!!!!

was not clean at all. they took my credit card info in case of any damages and the room was so gross and already "damaged" in many ways. i took photos just in case they try to say i damaged anything but it was very dirty. i had to go to the dollar store and buy cleaning supplies to clean the tub just to make myself feel better. also my toilet repeatedly overflowed. not a clean room at all. staff was friendly but the continental breakfast was limited and not good.

Not worth the low price...
I arrived around 5pm at end of August. The clerk said she had gotten up late and forgotten her glasses. Check was drawn out and clerk actually asked me to sit while she fumbled through check in. The pool was tarped over (ignore the ad). My room key didn't work until the fourth try and third staffer which meant four trips up and down the stairs and across the parking lot. The staff seemed a mix of pleasantly amused to belligerent to nonchalant on the last try. Ice machine didn't work (86 degree day). Lots of other signs of laziness, sloppiness and disdain for customers.

Spend an extra 20 and go anywhere else.
After booking a non smoking room, we got a room that smelled like smoke, and had cigarette burns on the top cover of one bed. The toilet had piss on the seat when we arrived and the shower was disgusting. The refrigerator didn't work, even after unplugging it and plugging it back in. The beds were mediocre and there was some kind of stains on the wall as well as bugs we had to squish.
