Rate was pretty high and that's cause we also got a military discount. Back entrance door did not work, had to park in the back and walk over to the side door and of course it was raining.

I only gave this review a 1 simply because you have to to be able to leave a review. When we arrived there was 6 people waiting to check in and no employees in sight. We had to go find someone. It took almost an hour to finally get checked in. Our room was filthy. The bathroom floor had not...

Needs work. Discussed with Manager. This property Is in a good location but needs renovation. Room price was not compatible with other hotels. Occupancy seemed low. Most employees were nice but seemed to be assigned several jobs. Water in pool looked murky.

They fixed...

This hotel must have gone through a change in ownership as it wasn't this bad when we stayed there 2 years ago. There is only one person managing the hotel at nights and a housekeeper and receptionist in the mornings. The breakfast is terrible, very limited selection of bread, milk, cereal and waffles. Breakfast is supposed to start at 6:30am...

The motel was the worst place we have ever stayed at. Upon arrival we noticed our room had mold in tub/shower with no shower curtain. The toilet was nasty as was the rest of our room. We ended up staying the weekend due to no vacancies elsewhere. Never did we see a cleaning person or did someone clean our room...

This place is poorly managed, poorly maintained, and although staff was very friendly and nice, they are clearly over extended and/or lack training. The breakfast was put out 3 hours late, and what was served would have failed a food safety inspection. Dirty showers, stinky shower curtains, dirty carpet, I don't have enough room to list all the issues, but...
