Dirty! It was one of the worst rooms I've ever seen! The weekend had a golf tournament, Indy race and spring break so nowhere else to stay! But I would consider sleeping in my car over that room! Wore my socks because I didn't want to walk on the carpet. I wanted to clean the bathtub before I even took...

My wife and I stayed here nearly 40 years ago and found it acceptable. We spent the night this month and it was the most horrifying motel stay I have ever experienced. A foot from one's nightmares. I have stayed in many low end hotels in the third world and this was worse than anything I had experienced in the...

I reserved a King size non-smoking room and they gave me a double full bed on a smoking room for starters. I told them that because of my job I might've not stayed the time I reserved and they said that it was ok. I had to leave a couple days earlier than originally scheduled and they refused to give...

Check in was at three, at 5 o'clock the bed was still not made. The room was very dirty, we did not want to walk on the floor without shoes. In all the location is great, the guy at the desk was nice, if you are looking for clean and well furnished you need to pay the price. If this...

from the moment I met the staff till my departure it has been a wonderful stay. The area is perfect,. I am a senior female alone and was treated with the complete respect and care.. My online deal was awesome and honored without a word.

For less then 85$ a night you cannot go wrong. Room had Micro-fridge and coffee pot. We stayed two nights. They cleaned and serviced our room to our satisfaction. We were asked everytime when we passed by front office "If you need anything. It is right across from heavenly bayou and a park. Walking our dog was lot of fun....

Terrible ! Was going to stay two nights and paid for two nights but one night was enough! Terrible and almost scaring . Was staying with my sister in law and we can laugh about it now but not then. Like the kids say it was the Pitts. Maybe a fellow might like it but no place for ladies alone.

Was quoted price for Sweet Sixteen B-day party for my daughter. Awaited callback from chef and staff to organize details regarding food and decor. Never heard back. Called back several times over 3 weeks and finally told we had to rent ENTIRE hotel to have party! 3 wasted weeks and now have to find new venue. Website states absolutely nothing...

Room was sketchy and dirty. They charged us 150.00 plus another 30.00 for my dog to stay in a room with one bed, late at night. (11 PM) Every place else was booked up. Never again!!! They made me leave my cat out in my truck all night because she would have been another 30.00 and she was in a...

First, they won't honor your reservation price. They charge rack rate. Second, this hotel has fleas. The a/c is a small window unit that doesn't cool adequately. There is a gap around the door an inch wide, the ice machine is broken and vending machines are all empty and no longer serviced. I could go on but you should have...
