A safety and security risk with no attention to customer care. I contacted the hotel about my experience and they only responded after the major hotel chain threatened to fine them with a response that was too bad about your stay give us another try. The original email I sent to them which they never addressed is as follows. Dear...

My wife and daughter came into town and stayed for just one night in order that I could attend a very early appointment the next day. We had booked in advance via their web site and noted the cancellation option was free but had to be done two days in advance. We were OK with that. We checked in around...

The beds were comfortable, the bedroom and bathroom were clean and the shower was good. I could not ask for more, for this price. We checked out before breakfast time, so I didn't get a chance to try it. The staff was not very friendly. We arived at the hotel before the check-in time and the girl in the front...

Booked 3 nights. Able to finish business amd asked about canceling 3rd night. I asked this on the first day and was told I "could check out but no refund" Not even an offer of a 1 night future stay. Nothing. That is stealing and I will have my credit card company block the charges for the last night. This...

Booked through an online website, all was good. I was gonna be out of my place for a few days, so needed an economical close place to grab some shut eye. Called the hotel to confirm that I could check in, even though I didn't have photo ID, and they said no. I said fair enough, then they charged my...

My boyfriend and I had been driving for days. We saw a deal online and thought why not try it. We showed up, the lot was clean, and the day staff was friendly although repetitive. Our room was perfect for us. We didn't need a huge room with a bunch of extra things we would not use. It was quaint...
