It was a dirty trashy place. I can’t believe they are allowed to operate a hotel in these conditions

The photo makes this place look decent. It is a rundown motel that has suspicious activities and tenents on the back side of the property. It was hard to find and hidden in back of a fancy hotel. It seems to be run by a family with little motel experience. Yes, they are friendly, but not professional when their grandkids take priority. The breakfast room was very dirty and unattended with only canned sausage gravy as a protien choice. The carpet in our room blackened my kids' little feet. I had to scrub them as they got into bed! This place needs MORE than paint! Tear it down, start over! (Rating -1)

The sheets and towels were clean and smelled nice. The comforters had cigarette burns on both beds. That was disappointing. The bathroom was clean. The floor in the whole room was very dusty. We didnt use the pool but it did look clean. The breakfast was alright but the floor and tables werent kept clean. We got a great price on the room. It is hidden behind Lowe's so it was hard to navigate the parking lot.

It was a dump. Pealing paint, stained carpet, stained bath tub that felt like you would fall through. View of the interstate on one side and the back of a Lowes on the other.

I searched hotels with "pool" and "wi-fi" for my trip and made early reservations because of a convention in town that weekend. When I arrived, the pool had been drained for weeks prior and I was never contacted about this. Also, when I arrived, I was told the wi-fi was down but would be restored within the hour. FIVE hours later, after four trips to the office, I contacted Travelocity and they moved me to a different hotel. Avoid this hotel.

Our room wasn’t cleaned well, we found garbage in the bathroom, and hair on one of the beds. The main light when we came in late wouldn’t turn on and we struggled in the dark to find some that would. Very disappointing stay overall
