First.....This hotel has changed names several times over the last few years. I believe that they think that you can't hit a moving target. I don't know if they are still associated with Wyndam hotels or not but when I stayed there it was a Wyndam hotel and they refused to honor many nights that I spent there on their... More

My friend and I had reservations at another hotel (long story), but those plans fell through. It was 11pm, we had to be up at 5:30 and this was the only hotel with vacancies, so, out of desperation, we took it. I will just list the problems we encountered: 1) There was no room key. The clerk said the machine... More

As one earlier review stated, 'Keep on driving!" If you've read the comments down to 2009, yes...the coke machine still doesn't work, the carpet is still sticky, and the lights were disconnected from the outlets (which makes it hard to enter at night). The staff knew we were coming hours earlier and didn't bother to turn on any A/C despite... More

Old, outdated and a bit creepy. Housekeeping did their best, (except the carpet is exceptionally dirty)but there is only so much you can do with what they had to work with. Old style chains on the door that don;t secure, parking that is not well lit and the front desk clerk not asking for any kind of ID upon check... More

This was the worst hotel my husband and I have ever booked. It was the only "pet-friendly" hotel in the immediate area with www.hotels.com. We walked into the lobby where reception was friendly, and got the key to our room. As we walked around back it looked like the something out of a Stephen King novel. Walking into the room,... More

Me along with approx 30 to 40 other recently stayed at this facility for a family reunion. "ALL" of us were very disappointed. The website says there are (2) swimming pools which is true but only (1) was open and it was not clean, also advertised is a wading pool which had no water in it at all. The rooms... More

After reading the reviews my husband was almost scared to book a room here, but he went ahead as it was the best value and he was planning a lengthy stay. He asked to see the room first and found it to be clean, however the next day when he planned to check in, he was not able to get... More

Wish I'd read these reviews before I booked 3 rooms here. Phrg34 is right, this is a working mans motel. Thank goodness I'm a working man with house shoes and air freshener. HOJO was the only place in town with 3 rooms available. Hmmm...wonder why that was? Monroe was a little farther from the job site, but it would be... More
