Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nothing at all to like. The hotel and room were filthy. Broken lamps, holes in the walls. Dirty linins. Bed spreads covered with cigarette burns. We left after 2 hours, mostly because of the unsavory people hanging around our room outside. Never again. Nasty

Inexpensive and clean.
Room was so cheap that we were worried it would be gross. It was very clean, bed was like new, good tv. Shower was a little difficult to use- it was older- and someone had written all over the bathroom wall in sharpie, but it was perfect for a quick overnight after a concert in town.

hotel would not honor reservation, they said travelocity would not be able to help me and would keep me on the phone a long time with no results, they laughed after each call from travelocity agents. the clerk offered to honor the price if i would pay him directly so he would not have to pay travelocity's fee and suggested i deal with them to get my monies back later.
