1/5 Terrible

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Check in lobby was dirty and depressing. Carpet on stairs and hallway was gross. A hallway door was open containing bags of garbage. The only reason we did not leave immediately was the clean white crisp sheets on the beds.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
When checking-in the gentleman checking Us in was not very personable. Then when we pulled down the bedspread and sheets on the bed there was a blood stain and hair on the sheets as well as a stain. I went to the front desk to let them know and he said he would send someone over. The guy that came and checked out our situation was very friendly however was not very professional looking. He took the old sheet and got a new one. I was very hesitant on staying but they had already ran our card and at that time of the night I didn't feel like moving on. The room was very old and had a musty odor to it. The gentleman that brought us our sheet said this happens all the time and I told him possibly they should have housekeeping look into it and his comment was oh it's not their fault. If I would not have been so tired and had a ways to go I certainly would have picked up and left and demanded my money back. Will not recommend this place to anyone!
