I liked the price. It was nice that coffee and tea was available 24hrs. All the rooms sliding glass doors were dirty. Old, stained, and thin linens on the bed. Could see shoe prints on the floors. Fridge was not cleaned. The soap on the tub was already opened. The door didn't have upper lock catch, just the pin. Phone in room was not plugged in. No ice bucket. Unable to connect to the Wifi and when we plugged the phone in to call the front desk, we were told to go out to the hallway and try to connect that way and go back in our room. Didn't work either....LOL. Staff were very nice.

The property was not clean and there were parts of the building that were in really bad shape. The room had dog hair everywhere. We were too tired to move to another hotel -but we will not stay here again

The room was not clean. There was dog poop in the hallway. I had to call on a cordless phone to contact someone to come to the front desk and she was not very friendly. After we seen the room we immediately checked out.

If we wasnt so far from home and there was another place to stay we wouldnt have stayed here. The pics online where great till you got there. This place is discussing. The outside was spooky and our room was half ass clean. Bedding stained, floors sticky. Only had towels for 1 adult. Towels where stained. Breakfast area was dirty. Whoever cleans only cleans what you can see. Dust and dirt peaking around the furniture. I k ow it was cheap and you get what you pay for but damn do better. It was nasty and everyone who stayed there that we talked to where in a hurry to leave also.
