I don’t even know where to start. The property looks nice enough from the outside however, when you walk in it’s dated and very dirty. The floors are stained in the hallways and in the rooms. The wallpaper is peeling off the walls, and the floors don’t look like they’ve ever seen a vacuum. Our first room smelled like mildew and the linens had not been changed from the previous guest. Our second room was even worse. It also smelled like mildew and it was filthy. There was hair in our linens, the mattress was soiled, the floor was dirty, and there was hair on the shower floor and walls. The toilet wouldn’t flush, and the coffee packets next to the coffee pot had been opened. Not that I would dare using the coffee pot here. It looked like the only thing the cleaning staff bothered to do was make the bed. Since we had already changed rooms once we decided to suck it up and get some rest, unfortunately that didn’t last long. Upon turning the lights off we noticed light shining into our room from a vent on the wall. It was a little creepy that light from the room next to us was coming into our room. At 11:30 at night we packed up and decided to make the 10 hr drive home. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone! The owner, A Loft, and Marriott should be ashamed to charge $165 per night for a room here. The only positive thing I can say about this hotel is the staff we encountered was nice.

The hotel was not crowded, but we were put in a room with a view of the parking lot and the side of a building. It was awful. The property looked very tired.
