In need of some TLC

This place does have a certain charm and the young man at the front desk was courteous, well mannered and eager to please. The room itself was fine, the facilities were acceptable but the problem was the bathroom. All me and my wife require in a hotel is a clean space with running water and the crew here missed the mark. With a little TLC a motivated maintenance manager and a good plumber this could be a much better place for their guests. The front lobby manager offered us a different room but we opted for another hotel down the street.

Better Hotels in the area!!

Pros: Pool and Water Pressure
Cons: beds, sheets, outlets and maybe some carpet?
We stayed here because family was already booked. I will not stay here again. The beds were Hard, sheets were cheap and course to the touch, rooms dimly lit, outlets were all loose, and found dead bug in the bathroom light fixture. Definitely has signs of age and needs some TLC. Two positives things I will say had excellent water pressure and the pool looked pretty cool even though I didn't get to use it.

Older but we'll kept

At first glance I felt disappointed but once I got to my room I was surprised. Everything was clean and up to date. I will recommend this hotel to family and friends as an alternative to the usual chains.

Private hotel away from the city

Pros: private, not many people
Cons: facilities inside the room, updating some of the amenities, providing free breakfast
Location: Lots of restaurants and fast food places within walking distance!
Overall it was a decent hotel, comfortable and private but kind of old (needs a lot of updating) Bathroom facilities were all kind of worn out, and the room we got was on the main floor (right next to a utilities closet and ice machine) so it was very loud and disruptive!! There were a lot of restaurants and fast food places within walking distance so that was good

Musty and outdated.

Air conditioner was "iffy" in our room. Very humid and a musty smell was very strong. The staff was very nice and accommodating but could not fix the problem.

horrible experience

Floors were filthy and sticky in the room. Bed was stiff and hard. Noise from other rooms and outside was annoying.

You get what you pay for

Was there for only an overnight. Got to the hotel too early to get into my room and the lobby has only 4 chairs, not very comfortable. Did get in before 3:00 p.m. The mattress was hard (good) but so were the pillows (not so good). Couldn't get the tv remote to work (it needed batteries). The room was large (single king) and clean but the shower was only a trickle in the morning and the coffee set-up, while free, lacked in just about every aspect. Free shuttle to and from the airport and when the shuttle died outside the hotel when I had to get to the airport, they did get me a taxi and cover the cost, which was quite nice of them.

Wouldn't classify as 3* hotel

Pros: The rooms were somewhat spacious but I didn't care for the tile floors.
Cons: As an airport area hotel, their shuttle should run more hours. People often have early flights and therefore have to use a taxi.
Location: Fast food and shopping were readily available withing walking distance.
Travelocity calls this a 3* hotel, but from my experience, I would liken it to a 2 and 1/2 star chain such as Best Western. I was also disappointed in their airport shuttle service, which I found out AFTER BOOKING that it only operated from 9 AM to 9 PM. I was required to take a cab to my flight the next morning.
