4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
new management needed
Room was small but clean and nice. My only concern is that the contract with Hotels.com plainly states that check out is at 11AM. The clerk at check in told me the check out is at 10AM, I was going to stay to 11AM just to make the point but didn't want to stick around that long. Might seem like a little thing but I don't like A**holes making up rules any time they like.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Old and inconvenient. Not very friendly owner.
It's a bit run down. Hardly anyone staying there. Did not like the smell or the door that locked up automatically at the top of the stairs before you get into the hallway. Makes it difficult to carry things up to your room because someone needs to hold the door or else you have to use your room key every time. Room was very small and bed not very comfortable.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The owner was rude and Obnoxious
The owner was rude and I wasn’t allowed to have anybody in the room because of that I went to my friends house that I was visiting and ended up staying the night because I didn’t have a ride and they couldn’t come in and when I got back in the morning it was around 1030 and they had already threw my stuff out into the hallway
