It was raining when we arrived and the first room had a leak from the ceiling. The whole place needs to be updated, dirty carpet, old furniture and not that clean.

The staff were fantastic. The room had some questionable areas of cleaning, the bed was uncomfortable, the AC unit was extremely loud, and the breakfast was meh. For the price it wasn't bad and I would stay here on a budget again.

When we first arrived we had to go back to the front desk because our keys didn’t work. Once we got in, our first room had a string mildew odor and very dirty ac filters. We went back to the front desk and they moved us to a different room which was better but the carpet is old and dirty. The bed linens were clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a fire alarm during our stay and we all evacuated to the parking lot but no one from the hotel came to explain what was going on. We were out of our rooms for about 20 minutes or so, with no information. It was an interesting stay to say the least.

Hotel appears to be poorly managed in regards to upkeep within the property and outside the property. The pool was filled with floating debris, hair, odor from the pool water with a cloudy green tint to where you could not see through the pool water to the second step into the pool. We ended paying another hotel to use the pool. Will not be returning to this hotel.
