The customer service over the phone was pleasant, the place is filthy inside. I literally had to wipe surfaces clean with wipes I brought from home and there is black mold all inside the bathroom. Yuck. The sink had dried up toothpaste and grime all over the faucet that came off when I cleaned with wipes. The walls have gross stuff all over them in the bathroom and the bedskirt on the bed had Lord only knows what all over it. The room reeks of smoke as well. Just yuck....

The location was ideal. The staff was great. The breakfast was yummy and plentiful. The smoking guests weren't the best; they didn't smoke in their rooms, but they smoked outside their rooms and in the parking lot causing smoke to drift into the rooms.

Comment from Hotel Management

Follow-up to hairy sheets

Cons: The management is clearly indifferent to the comments or satifsfaction of the guests.
This is a follow-up to my post regarding the dirty sheets in our room. I had been told that the manager was aware of the situation and would contact me, but several days later, when I hadn't heard from him, I called back. The receptionist told me I was getting a 10% refund, and that the manager wouldn't talk to me because he "had other things to deal with." I attempted to contact him on a few more occasions, but the manager would not take the time to talk with me.

Hairy sheets and unresponsive staff

I would not recommend this hotel at all. When I pulled back the bedspreads to get into bed, I discovered that the sheets were covered in what appeared to be back or chest hair. Covered. I called the front desk, but they seemed to doubt that I was even telling the truth. (I took video and pictures.) I was told that I could come down to the front desk to collect new sheets so that I could remake the bed myself, which is what we needed to do. The only other option was to change rooms, but all three kids were asleep at the time. The next morning at checkout I was told that the management was aware of the situation and would be contacting me later that day. It is two days later and I have not heard back from anyone.
