Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Over priced, dirty, and unsafe! Both gentleman who work the front desk at night are rude. One of them made me feel like I was bothering him by asking for a pillow that I left in my previous room. I checked in around midnight and my room was dirty. After wiping the room down with lysol I finally get ready for bed and realize the toilet doesn't flush. I had to flush 7 times to make pee go down. At that point I was n so exhausted I went to sleep. Next morning I requested a new room at 9:15am. No one said anything to me until after 1:30 pm when I asked again. Hotel has a bar that attracts unfavorable people. Someone or something peed down the length of my hallway Friday night and it stayed there all weekend. The hallway has mold on the ceiling . Their "breakfast " set up included a few granola bars, piss water coffee, and a waffle maker with no batter. When I requested bath towels for my room I was given pool towels that felt like sand paper. Place had several cop cars there 1 night and I didn't even feel safe sleeping there with my child. Even after making several complaints a manager never reached out to me. When I asked for a business card I was told they didn't have any. Don't waste your time or money!

Couldn’t get towels, coffee pot broken turned it in to front desk they gave us the exact same one back. The place smelled like cigarette smoke and mildew. The bed was so close to the wall you had to get out on the end of the bed. The bed was lumpy, got a back ache. Had to ask for our room to be serviced and got an attitude from the person. Never got service the next day. The breakfast bar was a joke. No milk for cereal, pastries were awful. It seemed like it was not serviced once the food was originally set out. I will never stay here again.

The property shows wear and tear. The breakfast area was sad and items were not within sight. I had to search cabinets for a tea bag. There was no orange juice only water from the machine. supplies low. The room was generally fine (but worn), there is limited lighting so sitting at the desk was not useful without a light. The bathroom sink was cracked, had no drain cover and there was an issue with draining water.
