1/5 Terrible

Traveled with partner, Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Arrived a little early and waited for rooms. Upon opening the door to our room we were GAGGING and coughing at the overwhelming odor of mold. Turn on the ONLY working lamp in the room to find the wall connected to the bathroom was BLACK with mold. The bathroom itself was horrendous, black, damp, and humid. We declined the room and requested another to which they responded "we will give you fabreeze" we declined again as fabreeze will only mask the scent of the dangeous amount of mold and we werent risking our health over a disgusting room. Eventually they moved us to another room with only SLIGHTLY less mold.. with no wherw to go, we unfortunately had to stay here being 6 hours from home. If you care about your lungs, or cleanliness, do NOT stay here.

It is an older Inn which was limited. Flooring was new, TV and refrigerator were good but the rest of the room was a bit older and tired needs a refresh.

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The room, family suite, had a bunch of fruit flies in it. When I let management know they offered to move us to another room located directly above. Looked and it has flies too. Floors were filthy, our socks were dirty just waking to the extremely small bathroom. Bathroom door and room separating door didn't close properly. Paint and drywall was peeling in bathroom above shower. Windows and mirrors looked like they were wiped with a dirty rag. For what we paid to stay here it was very disappointing.
