Well nothing really bad to say about the hotel itself. It was nice, clean, smelled great, bed was comfy. Unfortunately someone drove into a pole in the middle of the night and we lost electricity.

The guy when we checked in was very nice very helpful. The rooms were ok nothing special. The woman when we checked out was super stingy.... wouldn't allow us to have any coffee or orange juice when checked out because... "ohhh sorry.... that's only for the morning..." even though the coffee was right there.... no extra work required.

Room was dirty. Bathroom had black mold. Exhaust fan hasn't been cleaned since forever, crud caked on it. My wife wore white socks in the room and they were black when we left.

We booked for 2 nites and after walking into the room we went straight to the office and asked for our money back. We had booked online so she would not refund us our money. We reluctantly stayed one nite. Not sure what kind of activities were going on there but there were some pretty sketchy characters hanging out in...

It's so noise outside. Looks like a lot of things that's aren't right goes on at your hotel! Whatever you guys use to clean it out is too strong! And the chair inside the room needs to be in the trash.
