    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Paid almost 500 for our room. We understand it was very last minute but damn, 500 dollars for three old queen beds, dirty floors, stained walls, and smelly bed sheets was just too upsetting! I mean even motel 6 upkeep with their rooms a lot more better. Within 2 minutes of walking barefoot in our room, my feet was covered with dust and dirt. The feeling was just so disgusting. While we laid in bed, we can see dust floating in the air through the light from the lamp. The outlets weren’t even covered and was upside down. Daughter found a roach crawling around. The bedsheets smelled like old dusty thrift store clothing. There was a stained in the other room below the tv, as if the housekeeper didn’t even bother trying to remove it. The mattresses made noise with every movement. Sigh. I was so disappointed... I thought it would be a lot nicer. It’s like at this point, just tear down the building and build a whole new inn.

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    The room was dirty and smelled of bleach, we had to open the windows which had no screens to air the room out. The bedding was not properly placed on the bed. The pillows were basically flat from over use. The vanity mirror was severely cracked. No refrigerator or coffee pot. We will not be back.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    The room smelled like bleach but nothing seemed clean. There was hair everywhere on the sink, the toilet, tub, and even on the bedsheets. Not sure if the sheets were changed out. The towels were stained and hard. I bought a towel from the store and lucky took some blankets just to feel comfortable in the bed. Bought air freshener to take the bleach smell away. No refrigerator in room. The only positive was the staff was nice and the price was decent but would never stay here again. Way to uncomfortable for a weekend stay.
