Newest first
2.8 Poor
Cons:The staff member that greeted me spent the whole conversation spitting dip into a bottle. The room was outdated and dingy. The coverlets had cigarette burns and stains. The carpet was crunchy in spots. The bed was extremely hard. It wasn't a pleasant stay.
2.0 Poor
Pros:Nothing at all.
Cons:Hotel was booked on accident. Employees were extremely rude and would not let me talk to them and wouldn't give my money back and I never checked in. She cursed at my girlfriend and I. The guy was friendlier but the lady locked the door and locked him out so that we wouldn't talk to him and she said that she won't let him make any decisions on giving my money back. I never checked in after they wouldn't give me my money as the room was extremely dirty and when we walked by there was the housekeeping daughter's laying on the bed. The lady at the front desk would not let me talk to her and turned on the tv full blast so that she wouldn't have to hear me ask for a refund. Would never recommend to anyone. Especially at the 130 price that my card was charged-which was booked on accident. Filed a claim with my bank.
3.7 Poor
Pros:Good location, right off the interstate, staff was polite and friendly
Cons:Room shabby, shower was either burning hot or ice cold, blanket was torn, and there were roaches. Overall, the place sucked, would never stay there again.
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:Hard to get to had to go about 2miles further north on hiway to turnaround, beds were ok. But showers could be better
8.0 Very good
Pros:The facility was clean and beds were comfortable.
Cons:It had a musty smell probably due to it being an older establishment.
