You get what you pay for. Stayed one night with my sister In law and husband and we had bed bug bites. So beware! Also there was no remote in the room and when I told them they said good thing you said something otherwise you would've been charged. Decent staff but only issue is they have an issue with bed bugs!

I got 3 rooms for the week for my crew are work got delayed so we had nothing to do tell the following week asked to check out and they wouldn't refund me for the rest of my stay never ran into that before the bathroom is nasty dated beds are hard as a rock half the lights in the hallway don't even work very dark back door is taped open first room they gave us was still dirty shower and sink drains were both very very slow the air conditioner was very loud overall I've stayed in many hotels I travel every week for work and this one is probably the worst I've ever stayed in so your self a favor and go across the street

The hotel has the lowest rate in town. Repainted all rooms with new mattresses carpet and bedding. Anyone who complains about a FREE breakfast not being up to there expectations needs to remember that before discounts are rooms are $65/night. If you want to specify the room type u want "away from smoking or on a specific floor. MAKE A RESERVATION! THATS WHAT THEY ARE FOR.

Room Tip: First and 3 foors are most quiter

We arrived at a little after 5pm. Was told our room wasnt ready. So we went to supper. Stormed that evening. Our daughters room the window leaked and had rain pouring in. I ask to get a differant room and was told all rooms were down. (Not sure what that meant). Thankfully the rain stopped. Our room had bugs in the tub. The next morning we went for breakfast at 7:30. They were out of biscuits and gravy and said they werent going to make more because it takes too long. No coffee either. When we mentioned that to desk girl she just said yeah i know. Price was good but will we will pay more to stay some where else next time.

Very disappointed...was to be "newly refurbished" and from observations had hardly started. Shower did not work, no stopper in sink, toilet unsafe to sit on. One party in our group requested their toilet be fixed because it was broken, only to be told there was no one available to fix it.
We arrived at 3:30ish and they were aware our group was coming. They were not ready stating "they had a full house the night before and weren't ready yet."...it would be another half hour. We were on a tight schedule, but our bus took a half-hour drive through town.
Breakfasts were a joke. "Columbian" coffee which is usually very strong was like brown water -- BOTH MORNINGS. I couldn't even drink it. The "orange juice" was either orange kool aid, or maybe Crystal Lite...definitely NOT orange juice.
No one assisted with luggage and since there were necessary steps to either floor, and we had some handicapped individuals, it was quite a handicap.
We would never stay there again, and in fact, if it were a hotel used on a future bus trip, we would not go on the trip,.
The 2 stars is because it was very clean...although was very old and run down so was difficult to get that fresh, clean smell. Sheets were very clean and in spite of condition of bathroom it was very clean.
Oh...also train several times, but we love the train so wasn't a problem for us. Air conditioner was a bit noisy, but kept room adequately cool.

Room Tip: No clue...someone said their room smelled smoke, but ours did not. Again, we would NOT stay there ag...
