They made my stay...

The hotel was nice, but Jody who was working the front desk, made me feel welcome and went out of her way to get me in a room that met my needs. She suggestion I upgrade to a room with a microwave and refrigerator since I was staying for several days, which I did and it was worth it. She...

I don't care how inexpensive this place is, I implore you to book elsewhere! I'm not kidding when I say I feared for my life at this place. Hearing someone scream "HELP" while another person is attempting to attack them isn't exactly worth $60 a night. Listening to the trash scream all night was just icing on this horrible night....
