There were people loitering outside the entrance. The check in area smelled of old smoke and stale alcohol. I was supposed to stay 3 nights. Only stayed the 1st night because it was too late to go searching for a room.

The hotel was barely ok, however, the pictures make it look much nicer than it is. It really is a motel, not hotel. It was bearable, but it was pricey in comparison to what I’m used to paying. I don’t recommend the place, but the staff was very nice.

Anonymous, Thank you for posting a review of our property.

The hotel photos are misleading. The hotel itself is located in a very small town and because of 2 nearby events, this was one of the only hotels in the area with availability. I booked a double queen nonsmoking room. I was given a double queen room that was a joining room with a door to access the hotel room next door. The person in the room next door was a smoker, with a dog, which meant we heard barking and smelled smoke on and off all evening. We didn't get to the room until after 9 and were gone by 5:30. I called the front desk and asked for a blanket because no blankets were provided. I was told to call back in the morning because they had given away their last blanket. I booked the room for one evening... there was no need for me to call back in the morning and ask for a blanket as I was out before the sun came up. The best part... the bed bugs. Yes. BED BUGS. Needless to say there was no sleep had. We stayed in room 401. It has bed bugs. Yes, I could've called the front desk and they would've put me in another room, likely also infested with bed bugs. I was not interested. I was in town for a triathlon and had only a few hours til I had to leave. We have dubbed this the Murder Hotel as it looks like a place where crime scenes occur frequently. 10/10 will never return. I will sleep in my car before I go back to this place.

Shannon, I'm sorry to hear of your experience, though it could not have been with my property, as we do not have any rooms that are numbered in the 400, nor 300 range, you may want to double check your lodging for whatever date it was you stayed and where you stayed

Would reccomend it for a good night to get a chance for rest

The staff was very friendly. The door to our room was very difficult to open. My son had to literally ram his shoulder into it to get it open. Daughter got stuck in bathroom. That door was hard to open from inside. The shower curtain was very thin. The floor was flooded after each shower. But the water pressure was very good.

Worst hotel ever!

This hotel has not been updated since the Mayflower! We knew ahead of time this was not a 5 star hotel, but for the $94 rate they charged during the recent LA flooding, we expected a bit more than what we got!! There were no towels in the room when we arrived at 9pm and no staff available to bring them to us! Breakfast cereal was stale, creamer was spoiled and area in general was dirty! I would never stay here again.
