The floors were nasty. Walking in my bare feet and they turned black. Amenities provided were OK. This room was a bed to sleep in, but definitely not a good experience or a hotel I will revisit.

No carpet in rooms. Bathtub old & stained in bottom. Toilet seat loose. Outside in fair condition. Breakfast a joke.

Nothing good about this place. Overpriced, filthy. We got our money back and left 10 min. After arriving. Will never use Travelocity again.

This place was horrible for the price. Paid $150 for a room that had dead bugs on the counter. Trash behind the bed. Holes in the blankets. Cats fighting in the parking lot. Gross
