Shocking how bad the room was. We walked into the room took one look around and walked back out. Huge stains on the carpet, Cigarette burn holes on the bed spread (smoking in the room is prohibited btw) bathroom ceiling caving in, bathtub heavily stained and not appealing. I handed the keys back quietly at reception as there were other guests in the lobby and I didn’t want to make a scene. I said the room did not meet our expectations for a 3 star on Priceline. I was asked if I’d like to see another room but while we were checking in initially I was told they were completely sold out and they would not be able to accommodate our request for a king bed for that reason and because we had pre booked on Priceline. I really did not appreciate being treated differently because we pre booked on Priceline. I felt no need to see another room. We had paid for 3 nights and stayed five minutes. I am aware because I booked on Priceline I’d have to ask them about a refund. When I contacted Priceline, they contacted the hotel and the accounting department refused to refund. I understand how it works with Priceline that you don’t get a refund and that is understandable but at least offer something, a portion of the amount paid or even an apology.

I “attempted” to stay at this hotel last night. What peaked my interest in the first place was that it had a lot for kids to do(arcade, bowling, bumper cars) as I had my 3 year old niece with me. This all sounds nice, but don’t fall for it. Upon arrival, the lobby was clean, the hallways were clean. When I got in the elevator the first time, I feared it may stop working bc it was so old, rickety and tiny, but it didn’t and I can deal with this. Got to the room there were a couple “questionable” hairs in the shower, again, gross but whatever, I’m not much of a complainer, we just won’t use it, we are only here for one night. Around 7 she said she wanted ice cream, so we were going to go to Dairy Queen, so off we go. Waiting for the elevator, it opens with a alarming amount of fresh blood in it. Upon seeing it, it scared me. She’s staring at it, she’s not stupid, she’s been hurt and knows what blood is. I quickly rip her away from anywhere near it and take a picture (for proof). Then panicking waiting for the other elevator bc her mother had went down 5 minutes ahead of us and I mean, I wasn’t sure if something maybe happened to her. When the door opens on the lobby floor a HUGE pool of blood was outside of the door trailing all the way outside onto the walkway. My sister watched what the girl get out of the elevator with blood gushing out of her arm, yet they continued to claim it “wasn’t blood”. Needless to say, I carried the baby to the car(just trying to avoid her stepping in it) and we went home! Never again!!!

Booked via Priceline, was told the place was fully booked and because we booked on Priceline that this was to be our room. After seeing our room we decided NOT to stay. Ugh!! Stains on the carpet, tub enamel gone and the ceiling in the bathroom plus the room.

This is a fair hotel to stay at. The location was great. The room could use an update. The wifi was not very strong. Breakfast was eggs, sausage and hash browns everyday. No upgrades on the weekend. But still good. The restaurant at the hotel was pretty good. The pool and hot tub were clean. The hot tub didn’t really have any working jets. The bed was comfortable and the room spacious. It was quiet in our room although the hotel was quite full. I would stay here again.

Good location; not too expensive but older hotel. Clean. Breakfast OK (included) Too many people standing near entrance smoking. Probably a reasonable hotel for people who come to the area for work. Interesting place attached to hotel called Las Vegas. A family fun site. Only went there for ice cream but would think a family with small children would enjoy
