This hotel is very dated and dingy. Its located on the grounds of a casino, which for some is desirable. However, for many including myself, that results in a sketchy environment. The furnishings are old, have dead lights bulbs, and are overall rusted. The seal of the balcony type door is very bad causing you to hear the noisy parking...

Hello Shannon, We are sorry you did not really enjoy your stay. Our hotel is actually in front of Calder Casino and Race Track. We are our own property. Our rates are very budget friendly and affordable. We have been remodeling the hotel for the past year. We see great improvements. The breakfast is a free light breakfast. Perhaps you...

Hard to rate this place. The people who are giving it high ratings must be accustomed to Motel 6. The ratings are all over the place. I booked online at hotelsone.com and selected this hotel because it was five minutes away from a conference I was attending. Paid what was represented as the full price at time of booking. When...

Hello Ed W, Im sorry you have chosen to express this kind of review. We are not motel 6 and guests have to be verified to review on trip advisor. I am not sure if the police were here but we do have a 24 hour police station on the property just because we offer the local police officers a...

Today was the 5th day of my reservation and my very last day to stay in this hotel and I will never refer another traveler to stay here. I felt harassed, embarrassed and disrespected.

Hello Mr. Miller, I am sorry for the bad review and your experience. Unfortunately the hotel knocked at the door on 2 different occassions with no answer. Security proceeded to open the door and stay at the door trying to get your attention. The actual time you checked out was 12:08 and you were not charged for the extra hour....

I must say this hotel is pretty nice for the price. The rooms are comfortable for up to 4 people without feeling crowded. They just updated their TV systems. They've been doing renovations the last couple of months and soon they will have a sports grill on the first floor. We love the pool and they have a basketball court...

There was water coming through our room. We called the desk and they sent security, what we are no honest people. He saw it and then said call maintenance.

Hello, Thank you for your review. Security always verifies any complaints. We do not think your lieing this is just our policy. Our elevators are being redone at this time.
