not at all what the previous reviews say!

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: okay to good. The longer you can go to other fun places the better.
This is labeled as a 2 star. It would be lucky to be called a 1 star.

Not worth the deal.

The room smelled heavily of fragrance. Cleaning products I think. The sheets didn't cover the the whole bed and the cooling system was not adequate for 100 degree weather. Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. You get what you pay for it guess.

Very disappointed

I have stayed there before. It was dirty but at least the bathroom was clean. I understand that it's cheap but this time the toilet seat was dirty I went and bought bleach wipes. And that is yucky I rather pay the 10 bucks more for clean bathroom.

It was ok

I've stayed in a hotel with shortage of towels and very low water pressure....otherwise the stay was pleasant!

You get what you pay for; next time I'll spend a little more.

Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast, run down
Hotel is run down. Cockroaches in bathroom, carpets so worn I didn't dare walk around barefooted and management was loudly visiting with old friends late into the night just outside our door. The skimpy breakfast consisted of three varieties of cold cereal, packaged danishes and orange juice, unless it ran out. Since I booked as a package deal, I couldn't cancel and move to another hotel without incurring a lot of extra expenses. I'll never stay at this hotel again.

Don't judge a book by the cover, or in this case the hotel.

Pros: Free Internet
I wasn't sure how clean the hotel was going to be and I was worried about the service due to the price. I thought about going across the street to the Holiday Inn at first. That was me judging a book by the cover. My room was clean and comfortable and the service was great! Thanks
