3/5 Okay

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
No sheets for pull out - bathroom toilet was dirty

2/5 Poor

Upon entering our room, we noticed that the toliet ran constantly, but we just decided to keep bathroom door closed. Later on we noticed it was really hot. Turns out the A/C was not working. Thermostat was set as low as it would go and the fan was set to run all the time, but no air movement at all. Their remedy was to reset filter, which did not need to be reset, and turn the thermostat up to 69. Meedless to say, they had to move us to another room at 11pm. I used to work in the HVAC business.

The first room bathroom door handle came off in my husbands hand. We moved to a new room and the main door lock wouldn’t work so we moved again. That room was too warm and it had a musty smell. The carpet and floors were sticky. The staff member was as helpful as he could be under the circumstances.

This hotel is so outdated. I think it's more of a long term hotel for traveling workers.

Disliked: Staff & service
They didn’t return my license after asking for it during checking and I didn’t think of it. They could have left a message as we were there all night or during checkout in the morning. They notified me after I was driving home and had to mail it to me and I got it 7 days later. Think that could have been handled better
