Not great
Advertised as dog friendly hotel but very very small fenced grass area full of so much dog poop my smart dog would not even step inside… gross. Wall A/c unit was very noisy…could not sleep at all due to the noise from the A/c unit.

Good room with fair price
Basic room. I just really look for clean as we never stay in the room except to sleep. Staff was friendly. There was breakfast with tables for eating. There was also a coffee maker in the room. Bedspreads looked new. Laminate floor just feels more sanitary.

2/10 Poor

Even after a shower you still felt dirty
The rooms were filthy! I looked at multiple rooms so I can tell you it wasn’t just mine. The carpet between the beds left so much grim in your feet, your shower water would turn black. All the surfaces had sticky substances on them or water spots where they weren’t wiped down. At night, the walls are thin enough to hear what’s being said in rooms on both sides. And finally, the last straw was the cushioned toilet seat….. never knew that was something is despised until this trip and realized how dirty you feel when you use one.

4/10 Fair

The stairway up to the second floor and the parking lot had lots of trash and cigarette butts. Very filthy! Our room was better, but still not as clean as it should be, and the fake hardwood floor was like mushy. I don’t know how else to describe it. We slept okay, but couldn’t wait to get out of there. Would NOT recommend!
