    No....No...No

    This hotel has a bar on site. The music was loud until around 2:30am. No one could sleep. Parking lot was full from bar patrons so hotel customers had to park across the road. Manager said nothing he could do. Also heard sirens and highway traffic all night.

    DON’T Stay here. You will be disappointed

    Arrived to check in and I was told our room would not be ready until a hour after checkin time because they were being cleaned. We had to be somewhere by then so had to wait until we were finished to check in. Arrived very late evening to check in and there was no where to park because of a event going on at the hotel. Had to wait 30 minutes for a spot to open up to park. The staff was not helpful at all. Finally entering the room it was dirty and filthy. The one bed was dirty the second one had cigarette burns on the comforter. The floor was dirty, the microwave, refrigerator, toilet and hairdryer were dirty. The curtains were stained and there was a long picture on one wall that looked like someone had thrown soda or coffee at it. Thank god I travel with Lysol wipes. So not only did I have to wait to check in late but I had to clean my own room enough to touch things. This is a room that was suppose to be cleaned already. They said free breakfast and the only thing they had was dishwater coffee. I went to turn my key in the next morning and I all got was thanks. Not good morning or how was your stay. Also not to mention that all you smelled walking to the room was skunk weed. I have to say out of my 54 years of life this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Thankfully I was only there one night. I got up and left hours before checkout. I wish I took pictures but I was so upset about this place I didn’t even think of it. Think twice.

    Nasty overrated hotel

    This hotel is a dump. Traffic noise was loud guests brawling in the rooms and out. Nasty bedding, sticky floors. No breakfast, not even grab and goes! The rudest front desk staff I have ever encountered. I retired from the hotel business and I recommend removing this hotel from you site. The very highest rating I would give it is a zero! I have put my trust in Hotels.com, now I wonder if that trust has been misplaced?

    Noisy and inexpensive.

    Rooms were up to date, buildings exteriors are in need of revamping. Clientele is long term housing. Friday night had a private party in the lounge that was loud and stayed til late morning.
