We wish we had not booked a room there and almost left but it was late. The staff at the front desk were not very friendly and almost rude. The room was not very clean and we could not use the shower or tub because they were dirty. At least the sheets were clean. The morning breakfast area was also...

The place is filthy. They have bugs. The staff lies. They tell you they honor choice rewards. They don't. I didn't feel safe. Your money will spend anywhere. There are other hotels near by. I wouldn't stay there again for free.

The property looked fine from the outside. However, on the inside there were problems. The light over the vanity had a bad case of the palsy. The heater by the window had a loud fan. Every two minutes it would fun for one minute. Try to get a good nights' sleep with this kind of music. The real clincher was...

We decided at the last minute to reserve a room here instead of driving back from Outer Banks all in one night. I would guess by the looks of things that this used to be nice 20 years ago, but it is not now. There were two young women sitting on a bench near the entrance to our room who...

We were heading from FL to CT and stopped here to sleep. I was a little weary after reading the reviews but we tried it anyways. The price was average. The staff was polite. The room smelled fine. There were some stains on the pillow cases so we didn't use the pillows. The bathroom looked kind of gross like it...

Last minute check in, asked the rate for a double bed room for one night and was quoted $70.00 by room clerk. The room was dingy, a little smelly, and the bathroom was cleaned, but old and stained. I checked on line with Chain website and the price if I booked online in their lobby or driveway for the night...

I was not going to do a review on this Inn as I guess I got what I paid for. However, the reviews on their web site were decent, so I took a chance as it was where I wanted to be. It turned out to be one of the worst experiences ever at an Inn. We were checked into...

You get what you pay for. Bad smell in the room, nasty bathroom but cheep. I would pay extra to stay in a better hotel next to this one. Loud ac/heat unit and the breakfast was just not at all breakfast. Had cereal in large boxes and a gallon of milk. I expected to have single serving of cereal and...

This hotel is just terrible! Never ever will stay again. Shower curtain rod was broke, the bathroom door had no lock. They only gave us TWO towels for 4 people. The hallway ceiling looked like it was about to fall in. And the breakfast was terrible. The pool water was dingy and green and I refused to let my son...
