Only if you are desperate

Booked this hotel out of desperation as it was the only room we could find in the area for the night. That's always your first clue to keep expectations low. This hotel is disgusting. The outdoor pool had no water. There was no air conditioning in the hallways. The door to go out to the parking area by our room was broken and could not be used. There were dead bugs (moths, spiders) laying all over the worn, ripping carpets in the hallways. I would guess it had not been swept in months. The room itself was "clean" compared to the surroundings. Was very dark and I think they keep it that way for a reason. The indoor pool area was the nicest part of the entire hotel, but the bar was pretty low. I will say, the front desk girl was very friendly, kind and helpful. There just wasn't really anything she could do with what was wrong! I will never stay there again. Another hotel would be blessed to pick her up on their staff.

Bad hotel

We reserved a room that was supposed to sleep 5. We were supposed to have a king bed and a sofa bed. The room didn’t have a sofa bed so they made us pay an extra 11 dollars for a roll away bed.

Housekeeping did not do their job, all they did was make up the beds and empty the trash.
