My entire family stayed during our vacation. 4 separate rooms. 1 room had half eaten chicken wings and sneakers left in a corner. Our shower had hair, a used razor cartridge and used soap scattered all over. There was a bug that refused to leave my pillow. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable but housekeeping needs some work.

We booked two nights a fortnight ago and the week before our visit I emailed to confirm that the pool was in use as this Is an important part of our trips. No answer.

I stayed there Sunday (Memorial Day weekend). It was obvious by the amount of cars that they were really busy. Then I walked into the lobby! There at the front desk was Daneka. You could tell she was new and learning the job, not in a bad way by any means. There was a line 4 deep and only one...

In spite of having reserved well in advance, the room we received was old and shabby. The beds were hard with stained bedspreads and no pillowcases on the equally stained pillows. The toilet room/shower was passable, made annoying by the super-loud fan, which guaranteed waking up everyone in the room during nocturnal bathroom breaks. The sink area was the room's...

I couldn't ask for more than 16 MB/s download speed from wifi at a budget hotel. These are nice speeds to pass the night away. The room was clean and quiet. Bathroom appliances all in good order. The room had an old analog TV, but that's come as may be.
