Hotel is under construction from the Hurricane, some of the rooms have been updated with tile floors no carpet. As the other reviewers had stated there are train tracks right behind the hotel so if your a light sleeper ask for a front room or the trains will wake you up during the night all night long. Wonder staff especially...

We should've known this hotel (more like a MOTEL) was bad, when the clerk locked the lobby and had us check in via a window (like a gas station). The room was clean, but the room was dated. The shower had no curtain. The bed were rock hard. The a/c took forever to cool. The other dogs were noisy and...

Arrived Dec. 8 in the evening. The staff was quick with check-in and gave us directions to our room and suggestions for nearby restaurants. Room was a good size and clean throughout. Nice tile floors, a coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, tv and desk area. The hotel was still under renovation but the ongoing work did not interfere with our stay....

Upon arrival asked if room they had us in was a renovated room. Turned out was not but had no problems changing to one that was. Young lady working front desk did let...

I have stayed at this hotel, the room was super moldy, musty, the AC barely worked, the hotel was undergoing alot of renovations which usually means something good, but at the same time it was very bad and noisy. The location is good, the FDCs are super nice and professional, the hotel style is nice, the price is fine but...

This motel remains under renovation. We had an old room but it was clean and comfortable for the two nights we needed it. Cable was cut so no TV the first night. They gave us a DVD to watch. The free breakfast was good. The facility was able to handle our group of over 150 people. I understand that the...

Stayed here for the weekend. From the outside didn't look like much but you can Tell they are in the process of remodeling to make it better. They did go above and beyond to make our stay here good. In the future I'm sure this will turn to be a good hotel.

The city is great, and there is a lot of places to see. I stayed at this hotel for 1 night, the room was very clean which is very important to me. The hotel is also right next to a stop for the shuttle to take you to where you can get The Old Trolley Tour of the city. Also...

I stayed here for two nights, and it was disgusting. I was given a room that had just been renovated, but renovations were not complete. I tried to be understanding, as I thought maybe they were recovering from recent hurricane damage, but the entire place (inside and out) was covered in dust from them cutting tiles. The crew of workmen...

We had a fantastic time. We stayed for my birthday weekend. Very impressed with the owner who was on-site each morning during breakfast. He was AWESOME!!!! They went above and beyond with making sure we were happy with our stay. They are remodeling, so I look forward to staying again to see the improvements. I would not hesitate to recommend...
