NASTY place!! We arrived to the hotel about 7pm for a overnight stay on our road trip home. I was lured by the indoor pool feature. Everything about this place is horrible. It smells, it is dirty, stains, the bathtub coating was peeling and so dirty and the front desk clerk was asleep. My kids couldn't even get in the...

Bathroom: towel rack hanging from wall, but towels precariously perched on it, nonetheless. Rusting door from a reason that is easy to fix. Paint chipping from the back of the door, having been repainted incorrectly. Shower curtain bar broken and hanging. Fire/smoke detector hanging by wires. Asked for repair of items: screws left in the sink, metal shavings left in...

We heard the water in the shower from the room next door or so. Also all sounds from the hallway we heard in our room. The best thing was the chicken restaurant across the...

When I checked out, the front desk clerk didn't even ask me how my stay was. Probably, because he didn't want...

My stay was ok, but I was disappointed with the dirty tub. The hotel also had a funny odor. It needs a good airing and cleaning out.

I booked online, I clicked none smoking, for some reason it stood at a smoking room, I asked to have a none smoking room but was told there wasn't one available, so I had to deal with the unpleasant smell of sigs all night, other than that it was worth the money. I think there was a room available been...

All was fine but your sign at the pool does not note that you can not have a beer sitting around in the pool area. After a long day of work its nice to relax by the pool with a beer. As you are not allowed to do this and we were removed from the pool area I will not...
