Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property needs a lot of cleaning and updating. The carpet in the hallways has massive stains all over that look like someone was murdered and dragged down the hallway. The smell of the hotel was also gross. My husband and I didn't even want to breathe in the elevator because of the smell. Our bathroom sink didn't drain the water very well and it leaked from the pipe all over the bathroom floor. Our bed linens looked like someone had laid on them, so we were unsure if they were even clean. I chose this hotel because it was the closest one to the airport and I booked without reading reviews, my mistake that I won't make again.

It is old & run-down. This entire property needs alot of updating & fixing everything. The room was so gross that if we hadn't been driving all day, we would have left & found another. To stay we brought blankets in from the car & did not sleep in the beds. it is disgusting!

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The bar/restaurant was shut down, despite being used in the ad as an available amenity. Several doors to access my wing of the hotel from the parking lot were broken, forcing me to carry my luggage twice the distance. The landscaping and exterior made the place look like an old abandoned building from a movie set. The room itself and the pool area had no major issues and was the only reason we stuck around.
