I was in the car for 12 hours. Wanted a place for a good night sleep. Well I checked it. The lobby looked a mess. Especially since this is where the breakfast is served. I got checked in. Went to the room and found crumbs in both beds. I returned the key to the front desk and ask them to... More

We had been traveling for fifteen hours looking for a comfortable place to stay on the road to New Orleans. BOY WAS THIS NOT IT. The front desk agent looked absolutely flabbergasted that two twenty somethings would want to stay there. Our exhaustion allowed us to look over all the warning signs. Once regrettably handing over my credit card, my... More

I really don't get all of the negative reviews. If you want the Hilton, go down the street and spent $150 instead of $39. My wife and i stayed here last night. Yes, the room furnishings were old, but the room was clean and everything worked. Although the hotel was crowded, it was very quiet. We both slept all night... More

Never stay at this hotel. The way they make their money is by checking people in and then not returning their money when they absolutely refuse to stay in such a filthy room and unsafe place. I can't believe this place is in business. Urine and hair all over the toilet. Carpet was discussing. Crack under the door big enough... More

It was late and my diabetic husband didn't feel well so we stopped here. The clerk was yelling and gesturing to a man in pajama bottoms but I tried to ignore that and checked in.

We made a reservation blind with hotels.com... I'll never do that again. Should have looked at trip advisor first. Walked in... Walked out even the lady at front desk did not blame us. Very dirty and there was no AC in lobby. Got our money back and got out of there

The staff was courteous and approachable. The sheets and towels were clean and the air conditioner worked great. The room smelled a little like stale cigarette smoke (non-smoking room). Other than that, it was a good hotel for the price.

I got a bad feeling when I saw the sloppy handwritten message about having to reject the room within 10 minutes or forfeit the price. Then I noticed the broken cupboard in the office. Being too tired to drive on, I took the room. It stinks of smoke. Shabby, wornout, spill paint on the carpet. The stink is the worst.
