I was only using my Choice points for a free night or I would not have stayed here. Who wants a Mexican Bar and Grill in the hotel? I want breakfast. I saw a Cracker Barrel nearby on the map but turns out there are no sidewalks to get there and farther away than it appears. Stay at one of...

I stayed at this Hotel with my family and my wife's job during hurricane Matthew I really enjoyed the entire stay, even though my wife had to work taking care of different things pertaining to her job and what else was needed to be done. The staff was great, one of the maintenance guys was there, and he went above...

I am sad to say this hotel is in such poor condition. It is almost like it has been forgotten about while newer hotels were built around it. EVERYTHING needs updating. Though our room was HUGE and the view from the 11th floor was amazing, the rest of the Stay was awful.

Balcony overlooks the highway on the backside. Room was clean. Parking lot had a few shady people in it at night, this may have to do with the attached bar. The management did not take my issue seriously when i had an issue with one of the male maint men who pushed his cart into me on the elevator and...

I have stayed here 3 times now. I typically always come in very late, like after 11:00 pm. The front desk is always friendly, and check in is quick. Room is clean. It serves my purposes very well...it is cheap cost, clean room, comfortable bed. Never had any problems here.

Stayed there for 2 nights, as it was close to the venue my volleyball team was staying at. Got it at a good price, but as dusk feel, you could hear explosions from the theme park next door. Was kinda hard to find as well with GPS, as the road was hidden and hard to access. Room was older looking...

I am staying here with my parents and my brother. Very inexpensive and we thought "it can't be that bad." 1) there was dried poop on the toilet when we got here. On the toilet where you sit... not somewhere weird and hidden where it could have been missed. 2) there was a half way dried up chicken wing on...

The Lobby is big and roomy. We stayed on the ground floor. I think there 10 floors. Used side door to park right there. The Mexican Restaurant attached has wonderful food. I had the California Burrito. Room was Ok, large enough, refrigerator, Flat screen. Two sinks which was nice. Bed and pillows were ok, slept well. Stayed two nights.
