My family booked this hotel room the night before my mothers breast cancer surgery. In an already stressful time we come to a hotel room that was absolutely horrible. There were people hanging out the window out front smoking literately half way out the window. We Got the vibe most of these people were living here. We requested a cot...

I would not recommend this place for my worst enemy. My one night stay was very unpleasant & could not end fast enough. the room just looked old, the bathroom was dirty & roaches on the wall. the ceiling looked moldy I could not sleep through the night. I was sick after that night. Never again.

“NON-SMOKING Rooms 2nd floor I recommend Rooms 206 or 204 because I have stayed in each very clean room I especially liked room 206 even though there was a small stain on the rug (probably soda or coffee) no bugs room 206 bathroom renovated very clean could upgrade tub and shower fixture but overall both good rooms.BOTH ROOMS ARE FACING THE HIGHWAY ,GREAT VIEW especially at night with traffic!”
