Poorly staffed. Family that owns the place converted the first room behind the front desk into a living room off of their own living quarters. So when you look behind the front desk you can see discreet into the theater living quarters dream. Super unprofessional

1/5 Terrible

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Gentleman at front was kind but the whole place was a disaster. Rooms were unclean (dead roaches, no toilet paper, no towels). It was an unsanitary place. The sofa bed was unusable because it was so dirty. The man at the front gladly gave us our money back. Also, the room that we had reserved was out of order because of a clogged or leaky shower. They never called to let us know and they accommodated us with a poor replacement. The bathrooms also had electrical wires exposed with only see-through yellow tape covering them. My overall experience was terrible. We left to a Super 8 motel around the corner.
