Went to check in with my Expedia confirmation, was told there was “nothing in their system”. Glad we didn’t stay there, sketchy vibe.

4/5 Good

  • Disliked: Amenities

Typical hotel in a tiny town. Our room was recently renovated, which was nice. However, overall building is aged. Restaurant attached to it is far from great too. We ordered steak salad and meat tasted old...server's explanation to the weird taste was the special seasoning...Although it would not be required had it been fresh. Also, staff generally was not very friendly..
