My company put me up here due to the pricing for the time of year (this area gets expensive during spring break and spring training). As soon as I walked in you could tell it was not in the best of shape. I went to my room and was disgusted. Stains on the bed spread, smell of mold all over...

I was a little nervous after reading other negative reviews but overall it is a decent place on a budget. Like everything else in life you get what you pay for. The complainers must have been born with silver spoons in their mouths. Lobby was nice, room was average, beds comfy, pillows not so good, TV was good, breakfast was...

We are not picky about our hotel stays..BUT, this one was a disaster!! The hangers were sticky, the water was stinky, the light switches had sticky dirt on them, but the bed linens looked okay. We booked for 3 nights because of the location. We left our room at 10:30 a.m. and returned back at 9:30 p.m. expecting to relax...

Comfortable and quiet - even with 30 kids in the hotel. We had an accessible room with a king bed and there isn't enough room for the chair. It was just outside the bathroom door and in the path into the room. Breakfast was slightly better than normal for chain hotel.

Okay hotel for the money but a swimming pool full of leaves and an internet that works 20 sec every 1 minuet is just not good if you need get some work done. The bed very soft. Breakfast is quite standard and taste 100% like the industrial breakfast it is but it get the job done. Check in and out...

We stayed here for two nights in February and fortunately didn't notice any of the 'undesirable clientele' mentioned in other reviews. The only people we saw were tourists like us. The front door was open but I didn't feel unsafe there ever. We returned to the hotel both evenings after dark and didn't notice anything that would make me feel...

This hotel should be rated 1/2 a star. It appears that there are some long term guest here. I was given a dank, moldy and bleach smelling room. In addition I was given a room next next to a transient lady with three kids that kept slamming the door. Then she got into an argument with the clerk when he...

Everything previously said is true. Add to that the front door to lobby has been stuck open for a week or more (some day one of the many racoons will probably wander in), all of the security card locks have been removed for a month (letting some shady people come in and out the side doors), the carpeting stains could...

Upon arrival a lady yelled out the second story window that there is drugs being used here. My husband and I looked at each other and thought about getting another hotel room but we did not have time, we were in town for a show. Our first room looked to have blood all over the carpet so I called down...

When we first checked in we were given a room with a king bed. We could barely walk around the bed as the room was so small. We sat down on the bed and found that the bed was the most uncomfortable bed we had ever encountered. We contacted management and were switched to a room with two double beds....
