Pretty good for the price.

Pros: Free Internet, close to everything
Cons: foul smell
The staff was nice and checked us in and out promptly. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The only complaint I have is that I could not find the vending machines (I didn't ask anyone as it was late when I decided to look) and the parking lot had an extremely foul smell. The smell was there for our entire stay and it was a cross between a broken sewer line and a decomposing body. You could not smell it once you were in the room, but it would gag you once you opened the door. Also, the room smelled of smoke even though it was a non-smoking room. I expected this though, as other people had complained about this in previous reviews.

Great for the money

I had read the other reviews and was nervous about staying at this location. However, I must say that our stay was great. The room was super clean, bed was comfortable and the kitchen was perfect for our stay. The staff was extremely helpful in finding my husbands office where he was having meetings. I will stay again and tell my friends to stay, too.

Staff was cruel.

We was bringing on baggage into the room when the phone rings and it was the front desk complaining that our room was over there office and that we were making too much noise and to keep it down. We immediatly told them to give us another room. Now, the staff had kids in their office. Go figure. Also, at night the roaches came out plus the outside of the hotel smelled like sewage. The beds squeeked and you could feel the springs in the mattress as you try to sleep. The bathroom was half cleaned. I could go on but, I'll leave it at that.

Unhappy

The staff was great but the room it self was not what I really expected. There was cob webs hanging from the ceiling. There were bugs in the room. we were missing things that went with the room like the cookwear and forks. The walls in this place was paper thin. WE could hear the people in the room next door every little noise was heard. I would not stay here again..

Cleanliness of Room

The room was not clean. The floor was dirty and the carpet needed cleaning. There was a smell in the room and it was a non-smoking room. The walls were dirty, but the sheets were clean and I slept well after I cleaned the floor, wiped down the sink in the kitchen, the sink in the bathroom and the tub. After I saw how dirty the floor was, I decided to clean everything just to be on the safe side. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but for the price we paid, I would expect the room to be very clean. Also, we had a broken chair in our room.

3 nights

From the outside it looks okay and the staff was friendly. When I first walked into the room it looked okay until I turned on all the lights. I found blood stains and foreign stains on the bedding. There was blood on the floor by the bathroom and spiderwebs hanging from the ceilings. The room smelled awful and there were stains all over the carpet. I took pictures as proof. I hope that it was just an unfortunate incident and not something that is common.

Just can't believe this goes on.....

There should be some type of watchdog to prevent places like this to conduct business! When I was checking in and again requesting a room change, there were at least 5 other people in front that had checked in and given a room key and the room was occupied. I requested a non-smoking room and was given a smoking room. ALL rooms stink but, the smoking one - I just can't describe. After smelling my room, I returned to the small office to request a change and was told that they could find me one but, they would have to charge me. I was told the staff would have to leave the front desk, go room to room to find a non-smoking-unoccupied room ....I am sorry, I have just never heard of such in my life! Finally, after seeing that I was determined not to pay them more to do their job, they located me a non-smoking room. After (no joke) one can of Feebreeze Air Freshner, I can now tolerate the non-smoking room. If the hotel was not so close to where I need to be, I would move on! It is also questionable returning at night and one could fear for their life! Seriously need security!!!!!!!

Totally STUNK

I arrived @ 1AM and no one was at the reception desk. There was a note on the door stating "assisting other...." Waited 20 minutes - no one showed up. Went to run a few errands, returned in approx 45 min. Yet again - no one there! Finally tracked down security guard (aka reception desk personnel)...who wanted me to wait another few minutes so he could "take care of something". Very disturbed! Finally got to room - was a smoking room - requested non-smoking. Bed was like sleeping on the floor! It was not what I expected and would NEVER go there again,
