Do not stay here! This was the most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed at! Where do I begin... the property was filthy inside and out, trash strewn all over the parking lot and on the walkways. The check in area looked like a bomb had hit, air conditioners on the walkways in front of the rooms, the pool area...

Management response:

Hello Iclabus, I am really sorry for your negative experience at our hotel. Due to the extensive remodeling, the hotel has been a little inconvenient for some of our guest understandably. The lobby is also going through remodeling and we plan to move our breakfast area in the lobby. I hope you give us another chance next time when our...

Lobby was a mess. Small Example: The same two pizza boxes sitting out on lobby table for all three days we were here. A ladder was laying across the couch too. The indoor buildings stunk so bad (son said it smelled like someone threw up apple juice). Shower curtain was moldy. Ice machine didn't work. Pool water was murky and...

I took my client to this hotel for a 4 day/3 night stay. When reservation was made (a mouth in advance) I requested a refrigerator and microwave and was told they would be provided. Upon check in I again asked about this request and was told not possible. I explained that I was told we would have one due to...

Management response:

Hello Debra, Sorry for the inconvenience. We take our customer feedback very seriously. The hotel has undergone a recent ownership change and that is the cause of the remodeling going on to the entire hotel. Since only half of the rooms have the refrigerators, we are putting them in the rest of the rooms by end of the year. I...

Sorry for this and we will improve on our communication between the two departments. The hotel has underwent a ownership change and that is why the remodeling is taking place...

Booked online - had awesome pics. The only good thing I can really say was that when we got there I needed to use the computer- the customer computer was down- so they let me use theirs for a few moments. The front lobby was a total disaster- they were remodeling they said. They inside pool area was nothing like...

We stayed here for two weeks. The hotel is under new management and they are under massive renovation, and I loved the quaintness of this hotel. It's in the perfect spot. The rooms are huge, they have two pools, one indoor and one out. Great bed in my room, not sure about the pillows cuz I always bring my own...

Our room was good, service was okay and price was super cheap. Had outdoor and indoor pool. Breakfast was ok: biscuits and gravy, cereal, cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs and sausage. Missed the waffles I usually get at other motels. They are remodeling so pieces of old carpet were stacked outside. But for the price, it was a good pick.

The A/C did not cool the room off till about 3: am. Beds were not very comfortable, lots of pillows was a plus. The hotel manager was parked in the middle of the driveway all weekend long and had to drive around the car. The breakfast was awesome and the indoor pool was okay.

The only thing I can say is I hope that the work they are doing on this old motel is finished properly. It is a dump in need of major work. If I had known that the work was in progress I wouldn't have chosen this place if it were free

They are in the midst of remodeling the lobby, dining room, & many of the rooms, so it will be even better soon. Great king-sized bed! Really enjoyed our...
