Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

What few electrical outlets there were ranged from overloaded by the property to useless by virtue of being dead or just unable to hold in a plug. The advertised free WiFi had very poor range. What they called a bed was more like a rock sheet on a pedestal and messed up our backs. The sign staff came through was that one out of two trash cans had been emptied. Why that one, I couldn't tell you. I'm glad I went with a standard room despite it being my birthday weekend because if I paid premium prices for a space this lackluster, I'd probably be angry. As is, I just wasn't impressed by anything. Even the book with local information had issues.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The room smelled musty, there were a couple of guys loitering outside. One by the road and one near the parking lot. I prepaid Expedia the $400 when I booked it. Checked into the hotel and checked out 15 minutes later. I felt unsafe and uncomfortable but learned a HUGE lesson. Dont prepay for a place I’ve never been to before Wont ever book a prepaid place through Expedia again.
