Hotel was less than clean. Advertised as having Wireless Internet -- which is true -- but only in the lobby. Also a "safe" charge will be added to your bill upon check in. I'd stay elsewhere.

Our tennis team stayed for four nights during a tournament. It's a fantastic bargain! The rooms are large and clean. We had a microwave and refrigerator with 2 queensized beds. The AC worked great! The swimming pool is wonderful! For breakfast they served cereal, toast, bagels, and fruit with coffee and juice. The housekeeper cleaned our room and changed the...

This was the wrost hotel I have ever stayed in in my life! There were roaches everywhere. In the microwave, on the nightstand, everywhere. These were not water bugs they were (NASTY DIRTY ROACHES). I approched the people at the front desk twice about them and was told the first time that it was to be expected because its an...

We stayed at this hotel because of the price & convenience of getting off & on the hwy. The rooms were dark, dirty & old. The rooms had sliding glass doors that barely slid & the nasty curtain was hooked up by large pins. The bed was not level w/ its headboard & very uncomfortable. The pillows had no cases...

This is by far the nastiest, dirtiest hotel I have ever been in. I was afraid to sit on the bed, much less sleep in it. The manager was incompetent and seemed completely unconcerned or willing to help us. There was one set of towels for two people - nothing worked - the hair dryer, the light by the bed,...

This hotel was in disrepair when it was purchased. When it was the Guest House Inn it was not properly managed. Since Sept 2006 renovations have been completed on 117 guest rooms. As well as our lobby and breakfast area. It is a 38 yr old building that will still have ongoing minor restorations. But If you check it out...

My friends and I stayed here at the end of January to see the Senior Bowl. We reserved 3 rooms at this hotel between $60-80 per night. One room's door didn't lock, one room didn't have sheets (when we I called to get more sheets, they told me would have some brought to us, but none never arrived), and all...

This was among the worst hotels I have visited. It would have been too expensive at a fraction of the $104.99/night price tag. The bed was ok, the room furniture was ok, and the heater was noisy but functional. Everything else was dirty and smelled. There was litter in most common areas and hallways. Many things were broken. Nothing could...
