Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Are renovating but only in the lobby. Bring a roll of paper towels because they don't have hand towels. Continental breakfast was next door at the Motel 6. It was good. Would stay again!

Thank bles60
Management response:

Bles60, thanks for the feedback. The renovation is throughout the entire building, including rooms, breakfast area, lobby, and meeting space. We hope you will join us once the renovation is complete and let us know your thoughts. We always enjoy hearing from our valued guests.

Our stay saw renovations in progress,which meant paint fumes and no Continental breakfast. The elevators are VERY small,but the room was clean,roomy and excellent. WiFi fast and easy to connect to I'd return and hope the renovations improve it even more.

There is nasty, and there is NASTY. This hotel was NASTY....looked like someone had defecated on the chair in the room, wallpaper was falling off everywhere, mold on the ceilings and in the bathroom. If you have to stay here....get inoculated first.

Staying here while volunteering with the American Red Cross in support of the recent flooding. It appears that most of the hotel is undergoing renovations, with bare walls and painters plastic and tape everywhere. The front desk clerk said it has been that way for a month and the renovation is supposed to take a year. In the meantime, there...

Stayed here a year ago and it was "passable" with breakfast served next door due to construction. Now you literally WEAR the dust while you are here and there is NO breakfast any more. The wall paper is falling down around us in our 6th floor room (am hoping it doesn't cover us during our sleep; if we can). Pretty...

Doing renovations so no breakfast. Had coffee in the morning and it was terrible. The room was clean but the tv remote didn't work very well. The elevator I took upstairs had an inspection certificate dated 2013, I'm assuming they are inspected but didn't replace the certificate. Staff was very friendly so they had that going for them. Hopefully after...

Rather laughably short on towels...beds are very worn out...lock on door defective... To turn this into a wyndem Will take tons of cash...ask for $40/night rate...you might get it. Staff seems anxious to please, apologetic about bare essentials hotel. I laughed out loud and long when I called down for hand towels and the response was "we don't have any"

My husband and I stayed here because it offered breakfast and had decent reviews. The hotel is going through renovations so the breakfast was next door at the motel 6, which was awful. We got to the breakfast 40 minutes to breakfast being over and there was nothing, the drink machine was down so you had coffee or cold water....

As I entered the lobby it was pleasant enough though the luggage carts looked like they were 20 years old. No one attending the front desk. The clerk came and was pulling ear plugs out and asked if I was checking in. The coffee was supposed to be just made but was only lukewarm. Lights in corridors were very low...

This hotel was recently purchased and is being remoded. When finished it will be a Wyndham Hotel. Currently is in need of updating. Elevator floor has cracked covering as well as an unusual odor. Room was much nicer that I expected but could use some updating. For the price it was acceptable.
