My boyfriend came into town to visit me and he usually stays at Howard Johnson Express Inn right across the street from this dump, but they were booked so he decided to go to this one since it was still in the area and not too pricey. We spent the day together and didn't check him into the place till...

We stayed here for one night. The bed was stone hard. The room was not big enough for two double beds. Would have been better off putting one of those double beds in the closet that was big enough to be another room. Bathroom was large but no counter space. A table or shelf of some sort would be nice...

This was bad enough that my wife and I would not stay even though the room was paid through American Airlines vacations. The prorpietor refused to give us a statement saying we were checking out.

My husband and I stayed here because my company Christmas party was down the street 12/15/11. The carpet was dirty, the sheets on the bed didn't look clean. The pillows were flat and only had two. The throw pillows on the bed had makeup on them. The heater blew out COLD air for about twenty minutes before the heat came...

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! First, the owner and operator of the hotel charged me $120 for a room, then i found out later that the going rate is $60. The rooms were absolutely horrible. The heat cuts off like every 3 minutes, and stays off for 5 minutes, leaving you freezing on the cold nights. Sheets worn, torn. Carpet was...
