Zero stars - literally left and drove 1.5 hrs to another hotel after dark just to feel clean and safe. Dirty room, couldn't get clean sheets, no food, no breakfast, rude employees, dead old coffee in pot in room, fridge was open and full of water like defrosting when we arrived. Remote didn't work. When room filled with smoke from neighbors stove being dirty, our room filled with smoke and nothing was done for either of us.

The shower was decent size. Everything else was worn out One renter came home that night only to find their stuff in the hallway. Seems owner wanted to paint even though it was rented. We had someone pounding on the office door late at night. A little scary. Website said breakfast was available. There was none. I guess the place was green in that they never came in to clean the room during our stay. Short answer is do not stay at this place

the property was not well kept on the outside or the inside. the fire alarms had been taken out of the room; the carpet was filthy. I would not put this property on your list on places to stay. they over booked the room next to ours and the was a quit the flight between guests for about two hours outside our room. They police had to be called at 1:00 AM to help the guests that were in their car, waiting for manager but the manager never showed up.
