3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Beds were comfortable, no hot water in the shower - had to call the office for help. Breakfast was very good. Much loud door slamming starting at 4:30 AM, trucker outside idling for 45 minutes. Cut our sleep short.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with group
Liked: Property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Cleanliness
I find it UNBELEIVABLE that you use the excuse “due to Covid” they only clean rooms every five days. Not only does that mean no clean towels, coffee, but you only get 2 coffee cups per room. You literally have to go to the front desk for coffee cups and towels after NIGHT 1. If Covid is the excuse, you should clean more, not less. The mattresses were the only good thing about the stay.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
Disliked: Cleanliness
Our room was a little dusty (not sure how long before we checked in it had been cleaned), the chair in the room was dirty and our tv stopped working at a point. The cleanliness was disappointing for the price we paid for 1 night.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I liked that the property was easy to find via navigation, and was just right off a major road. I also liked that my friends who I was meeting up with stayed at a nearby hotel that was in walking distance. I did not like that my first room upon arriving was on the 1st floor and also to an adjoining room. I felt that the experience would have been better if I was initially asked if that would've been ok, vs. me finding out upon arrival. My second room that I was moved to was a one with twin beds, which was fine, but the sheets looked as if they may have just been made up/ re-used, as the sheets were still wrinkled as if someone slept in/ on the bed and just simply made it back up neatly. The room also had an unusual, but somewhat strong off scent. I couldn't determine if it was food or maybe something else. My third room, which was also a twin, was acceptable, but at a price of no refrigerator. The elevator was also a little buggy at times, although it still worked fine.
