  • Liked: Staff & service
  • 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.

Would not recommend ☹️

Uncomfortable mattress, stains on my blanket also one bed was not done all the way after they cleaned the room. I had to wait for the manager to get my keys. here was a lot of noise from people coming and going until late night -> early morning. Somebody starting pounding on the managers door screaming than crying. You could hear people snore through the walls. The place looks OK from the outside and doesn't have a dingy appearance.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This property is hardly staying together... the room that we stayed in had wholes in the wall, no heater or ac unit, the shower was clogged so standing water was part of our showers... the faucet for the shower was being pushed off the wall by chunks of concrete or some kind of other material! I was very very disappointed with our stay I would just say spend the extra $30 per night and get a better hotel
