This experience was absolutely horrendous. I was not in the room but all of five minutes. The room was not clean, had a musty smell and carpet was old and dirty. I did not stick around to see if any other things were an issue. The surface problems were enough. The kicker was when I asked to get my money back. I paid for my stay though Travelocity and was informed that I would need authorization from the hotel to get my full refund back. I spoke with the front desk and surprise, surprise, the manager was not available and I was told to call back the next day. It took me 3 days to get in contact with someone at the hotel with some sort of authority and even still I was not able to get a refund because they had the nerve to say that it took longer than 15 minutes upon check-in to report an issue with my room, which was not the case. This whole experience with Travelocity and the hotel was horrendous and the customer service as well as the cleanliness at the hotel was horrific.

The experience was not at all good. The hotel corridor was stinking with smoke. The smell was too strong.

Worth the price

Pros: the cost was good
Cons: get a decent tv info system.
Very affordable hotel. Good location. The televisions are newer flat style, but the programming service is the worst. Half the channels won't work right. The guide is next to unusable. No control over viewing the guide..just have to wait thru 10 minutes of scrolling to find the channel wanted. TERRIBLE
