• I rented 2 rooms. Both were filthy. There were stains on the sheets in both rooms. There were cigarette burns in all 4 comforters. The pillows were stained. The bed skirts were stained. The floors were sticky. The toilets were stained and filthy. There were stains on the sinks. The mattresses were worn out. There was a horrible odor in the rooms. There was a horrible odor in the hallway. There was a horrible odor in the stairwell. • One of the rooms was occupied (only what I can assume) by squatters. The door was locked. When I returned to the desk to change rooms, the clerk was very surprised that there were people in the room. She gave me a new key to a different room. When I returned, three people were leaving the previous room in a big hurry. I will never stay at this location again. It was, by far, the absolute worst hotel experience that I have had in 25 years of travel, both professionally and personally. It was not safe and it was, in no respect, clean. This franchise should be revoked and removed from your chain. Just horrible and terrifying!

Worse place ever!

This place was so DIRTY! Black short hair in the shower. Towels had holes in them. Didn't get the room I booked and prepaid for. It was a non-smoking room and it stunk like smoke also in the hallways. Curtains didn't fit the window either. I told the manager and she looked like she was heavily medicated and told me there was nother she could do. WHAT?? Your a manager.....make it right?? We didn't even have a table in our room either. Burn marks in bathroom too! NEVER will we stay there. Oh yeah.....there wasn't even a fitted sheet on the bed!! I took pictures of everything wrong with this place.

hotel was dirty

We reserved a nonsmoking room but the AC was broken. So, we had to take a smoking room due to they were booked - everyone was. The next day we asked for a nonsmoking room and still nothing. The television kept going out and the bathroom had stuff all over the walls. We went to purchase air freshener to try to make it better in there and when we sprayed it, the smoke alarm went off. However, it was so faint that it would have never awoken anyone in that room. Horrible experience.

Horrible place to stay, look elsewhere!

I booked this hotel to stay while attending my daughter's bootcamp graduation. The first room I was asigned to was filthy, one of the beds was dirty andthe sheets looked as thought they weren't changed. The bathroom was horribly unclean and looked like someone had used it for #2 and forgot to flush. The carpet was disgusting. The second room I was assigned wasn't much better, but I was too tired to deal with it. The carpet was filthy again and I wasn't able to walk on anything without shoes, the blanket on the bed was dirty, so I was only able to coverup with a sheet. I slept poorly thinking of all the critters and other things in the room. The TV didn't have a remote and the front desk wanted me to wait around for the manager to open a closet to get one for me. I was too busy spending time with my family/friends for this. The bedskirts were stained with body fluids and appeared to have never been laundered or changed EVER. Also, the free breakfast consists of pastries and juice or coffee, the room where this is served was dirty, and I wouldn't eat that stuff if you paid me. The entire place stank of cigarette smoke, even my so called non-smoking room. If you must stay here, please bring shower shoes or slippers, inspect your room thoroughly and take the time to get some satisfaction. I would strongly suggest you seek a room elsewhere as there are plenty of other hotels in the same price range, and they too offfer shuttles to the bootcamp graduations. The only good thing is there is a McDonald's right next to the property. Navy families stay away, you want good memories of your child's graduation not nightmares.

rooms need to be aired out daily

They need to have more personal necessity(shaving cream,toothpaste, toothbrush, etc.). Customers with earlier flight out(before 6:00 a.m.) should be able to have a bowl of corn flakes. I was refused milk for my corn flakes because it was not 6:00 a.m. I had to be at the airport before 5:00 a.m., I was told by the desk clerk I could not have any. My credit card was also overcharged.
