Absolute worst customer service. Booked a room for two nights TWO MONTHS in advance, called many times before arriving to confirm the room was still reserved, and the woman on the phone always confirmed our reservation. We call again two hours before we were set to arrive, and the man on the phone, Timothy, told us that we did not...

I made reservations for my son and his friend to stay here for 4 nights during VooDoo Fest over Halloween weekend. The reservations were made a month in advance. They got to the hotel prior to check-in time and was told a room was not ready. Not a problem. Hotel staff told them they could still park their car in...

This review is hard to write as there was no real big problem, just an unhappy unsafe feeling that we both felt as soon as we arrived for our one night stay. The welcome was nice enough, we were given some tips of where to go and to get an uber. The room was poor, the window was filthy, there...

I made a mistake in choosing this motel. You would think that calling it Family Inns, that it would have implied that it caters for families. It doesn't. It is a low class dwelling, with no class, no quality, and no attempt to improve the motel to a higher level. Had it not been for the fact that my payment...

This place is by far the worst place I've ever lived in,and I have lived in some places that'll give you the chills.. If it wasn't for work, I wouldn't be here. When you enter it at night it looks haunted. My friend joked and said it look like where bank robbers go. My room had no bathroom lights and...

Never one to shy away from adversity, I checked in here despite the poor reviews. I stay at many budget hotels due to constant travel. I loved the location right on the bus route. Saved me a bunch in parking. The rooms are older but mine was clean. Lots of stains, chipped paint and burns, but people are destructive. The...

What kind of place is this??? A dump!!! They have a couple living there who works there. Our first night he punches her in the face and has the whole hotel in a disturbance. Wake up the next morning and she is the housekeeper. Boy is that great hospitality. The list goes on and on. Security is a joke!!! I...

First of all the check-in process took more than 30 minutes because the clerk could not locate my reservation which had been made through hotwire. As it turns out the reservation came through Expedia even though I made it on the hotwire website. When I eventually got to my room, which was very dated, I discovered an empty vodka bottle...

Don't stay here if you can't find the humor in the things around you. First, our first room we were given was great until we saw the ceiling was dripping water and they moved us to our second room. At first, we wanted to tell them we changed our minds and wanted the leaky room instead. Upon walking in, the...
