2.0 Bad
DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL. VERY INCOMPETENT MANAGER AND OWNER. THEY WERE EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL AND RUDE!!!!!!! We booked this hotel with confirmation of 2 queen beds, and we even had an email to prove the reservation. Upon getting there close to midnight, the manager came out, in what looked like his pajamas, rubbing his belly. I showed him our reservation, and he gave us our keys, thinking all was good. We get to our room, and it only had one bed. I walked back to the front desk, and he proceeded to refute our reservation, even though it said in black and white in our confirmation that we booked for 2 queen beds. I remained calm, while he questioned my intelligence by sarcastically asking, “So is my computer wrong?” as he claimed it only showed 1 bedroom on his computer. This was past midnight, and we had 2 tired kids waiting to rest. The manager and I walked to our room, so he could see there was only 1 bed, and when he got to the room, where my husband was sitting on the bed, this rude manager had the NERVE to tell my husband to not “disturb the bed!!!” Who says that to their customers!?! The owner was notified, and even he was saying that they couldn’t modify the booking!!! What kind of business does shady things like that! Do not advertise you have 2 beds, customer then books, and turn them away bc your computer says otherwise. We have traveled the world, & stayed at different places. This WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE. Room smelled bad anyway!! Do NOT waste $$ here!
8.5 Great
Pros:The room was clean, large, and comfortable. Check in was easy, and the staff was friendly.
Cons:No complaints for the budget price ...
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Clean, affordable, walkable to restaurants. I LOVED staying here.
6.8 Okay
Pros:I was originally put in a room with a king bed, which I'd reserved, but the tv was finicky and kept cutting out. The front desk clerk tried to fix it, and eventually gave me a different room with 2 queens. The second room was fine, pretty clean and comfortable, across the street from a casino if that's your thing. Small pool which is open 10a-10p.
Cons:The first room had been a bit dirty (the walls of the bathroom weren't clean and the pillows on the bed smelled distinctly like men's cologne as if they hadn't been washed). Also, I know this is petty, but they didn't provide mini shampoo & conditioner bottles and I really wanted to wash my hair.
8.8 Great
Pros:Friendly staff! Great location downtown that was quiet at night. Breakfast in the morning was a cool thing to get. Didn't get there in time to swim but pool area looked good, it even had a grill.
Cons:Shower head could have worked better. Ice machine was out of order :(
