6.0 Good
Pros: The ease of having the first floor and being able to just walk into my room from the car. The bed was firm and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Cons: I had to pay a $25 pet deposit just for my dog to come home with fleas. And no where for my dog to use the bathroom, unless we walked to the abandoned field across the way. So that really ticked me off since I had to pay more to get the fleas removed on top of a NON disclosed pet fee. Had a very thin blanket for the bed. Might as well have been a sheet. I booked a NON smoking room and was given a SMOKING room. I walked into the room to turn around and walk back out to take even longer to have to go get a new room that was NOT smoking.
3.0 Mediocre
Cons: 30 degrees outside with the family in the room. The heater would come on a set the fire alarm off and then shut down. No heat. The hotel is way over priced. Should of stayed at holiday inn for that amount.
4.0 Okay
Pros: person at the desk was very friendly, beds were good, room was clean
Cons: wires hanging from TV, in room phone had buttons missing,loose carpet, paint missing on bathroom ceiling and it also looked like it had black mold on the bathroom ceiling and walls.
7.0 Good
Pros: The room was quiet and clean. The office people were very helpful with every request including an extra pillow and directions. The location was excellent. Close to town, shopping and fishing at Purtis Creek State Park.
Cons: The room was obviously quite old and in dire need of updating. The fit and finish was almost laughable. The staff was working on cleaning the room air conditioners during the second day but because of that the one in our room ran smoother the second night we stayed. We had a smoking room so that may have been part of the problem.
