I reserved and paid extra for the advertised smoking room upon arrival was informed they don't have a smoking room but still charged the extra $10 for it. No breakfast except prepackaged doughnuts and coffee. Ice and vending area and fitness room was under construction and not accessible. Carpets were not very clean.

NOT a good choice

Pros: Parking lot was freshly paved.
Cons: Everything could be improved here. Everything!
A bad experience overall. Drastically overpriced and terribly under delivered. It was what you might expect for 49/night but NO WAY worth the 120 that we were gouged. Bugs behind the bathroom door, dark dated room, pool freezing and closed at 7:30 because the lights didn't work in the pool room. A dirty lounge chair and a broken plastic table in the pool room amid a stack of tools and junk, no pool towels, VERY unprofessional staff dressed in t-shirts and yoga pants and didn't even get up from her chair when we checked in at the counter, and a pathetic excuse for a breakfast for this price! There was NO food out at 7:30. We badgered the desk clerk and he finally (without washing his hands) put out a tray of gray, sort of cooked sausage patties and a pitcher of milk for the dry cereal. When asked if that was all, said (in barely legible English) that the "eggs we broken - no eggs" and raised his hands as if to say oh well when we showed our unhappiness. Move on to Carbondale for a decent hotel.
