Our room was not cleaned when we arrived, there were used towels and an open bar of soap. One of our beds was also broken and slanted noticeably. We went back to ask for a new room and they had none. So I asked if it could be cleaned and they said the best they could do was give us...

The hotel and room was nice. All was well until I woke up the next with bug bites everywhere. Of course they said they didn't find any. Claim it might have been spider bites. I went to the doctor who said they were consistent with bed bug bites, i had to get a shot and two RX's. They refunded half...

I stay at this property yearly for several years and the comments about this place are accurate. This stay was slightly better as for the first time I didn't have issues with my room. The property is a little cleaner than in the past. Room is dated with the furniture scratched and worn, at least clean. Common areas such as...

Never recommend, rooms unclean, beds tiny, food bad, smells awful, bad service, bathrooms unsanitary and unclean, hair on walls used towels on the racks. 2 nights here was a stretch for the quality of this hotel. If u don't want to be disgusted while you sleep and have to wear shoes around the room, I would find somewhere else! I...

Run, Run Screaming, don't stay at this property. Multiple Code violations at this site. Moldy, dirty, trash everywhere. Items stored in stairwells in clear violation of fire code. Charging for nights not stayed. Shameful and Embarrassing. Ant and bug infestations during our stay. And management that won't let you out of your reservations once you have seen and experienced the...

Do not stay here! This hotel is beyond dirty. There were bugs in the sheets, ants in the room, trash everywhere around the complex, mold and mildew in rooms, ceilings falling apart. We had 12 rooms and not one was decent. We finally left 2 nights into our 5 night stay. Had to wear shoes in the shower due to...

This hotel is severely mismanaged. The staff tries with little support, direction or accountability. We witnessed group after group demand new rooms, complain and leave. The garage over follows, dinning area table remain filthy day after day, rooms are marginally cleaned. Slap shot maintenance in rooms and can't moon areas. No smoking rooms reek. When will management do their jobs?
