10/10 Exceptional

Local resident finds respite
We stayed because we had our carpets cleaned and needed to let everything dry overnight. The room we were in (316) had no closet, which wasn't a big deal for us, but definitely would have been an issue if we had been staying longer. The breakfast, and the hostess, was fantastic. We have traveled a GREAT deal this year for pleasure and probably 50% of our stays either did not offer a hot breakfast or offered no breakfast at all - and pools were closed - all under the guise of "covid" issues. It was very nice to have a full breakfast before we headed back home.

Ok room but NO WiFi or place to hang clothes
Friendly staff but very unhelpful. Will never stay here again because i couldn't access the internet which was a huge disappointment. The front desk had zero interest in helping figure it out. Also.. no racks, rods or hooks to hang clothes which is strange for a hotel.

Convenient and affordable
The best shower of any hotel I have ever stayed at! Beds are decent, place as clean as could be due to remodeling. Staff was friendly even when lying about closing breakfast an hour earlier than scheduled.

2/10 Poor

This hotel is so run down especially for the price. There was no air condition in the hallways. Have our light fixtures and outlets didn’t work in our room. The floor was very dirty. There was no soap and shampoo. It smelt like mildew. I complained and they said someone would reach out to me within 24 hours and I’ve yet to hear from them. I will be calling Monday morning.

Beautiful stay
It was a very nice stay. The room wasn't completely finished. But it was very nice and big. The staff was so friendly and nice. The lady that worked the morning shift was running herself to death doing everything breakfast, running the front desk, cleaning etc. She done an amazing job the breakfast was very good. She deserves a promotion or more money. She was amazing . Highly recommended

Outside looks great and they are remodeling so my hope is that it is nicer after remodel. Our room had a weird smell. The couch in the room was nasty looking and should be burned! The carpet was stained in many places and just felt unclean. Not enough parking. Internet was slow. Tv picture was fuzzy. No closet so no place to hang clothes. Again, maybe it will be better after remodel.
