Rooms were clean and comfortable but backing onto busy road. Pool area was poorly maintained. No towels, toilet paper, dirty floor looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in a week. Breakfast staff were unhelpful with allergies. When asked if there was an option or if they knew if the eggs had dairy, answer was I don’t know with no inclination to help.

It was highly disappointing that when we arrived at the motel, the slide that the kids had asked for when we were booking was not there and neither was the hot tub. We were intentional on booking a hotel with slide, and paid just as much as a spot that would have had this. I guess next time we will have to call and make sure the pictures on Expedia are current. The man that served us at the counter said that they’ve asked Expedia at least 50 times to make a note on the site that their slide had to be taken out. He apologized, but that doesn’t change the fact that the kids were highly disappointed.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel room was dirty. There was hair in the bathroom, stains on the walls, hair in our towels. The pool area looked very run down; the water slide is gone, a piece of plywood over top the hot tub, and the pool itself just felt dirty. We asked for our room to be vacuumed and they said they were sold out the night before so more than likely couldn't. They left our fresh towels sitting in the hallway.

When we got here the pool slide wasn’t open and the hot tub was also closed. There was no towels on the room and no towels available when getting out of the pool. Guy at the front desk was doing too many jobs. He needed help.
