Stayed here in November (visiting from Canada) and didn't have the best experience (I left a review below). Well, I just got my credit card bill and the room was JUST charged this past month. How convenient that when the Canadian dollar dipped incredibly low (77 cents compared to 88 cents on the date of the transaction), my card is...

Picture not hung on wall, all lights and clock unplugged, found that at night. Trash under bed, found that in the morning while checking for sock. Stain on sheet, found that in morning too! wish I could post pictures. Learned to inspect eveything before accepting the room. They did reduce cost of the room.

Inside rooms were dirty, cold and musty smeling. Two of the 4 poeple in my party got sick the second day there. We...

We booked late (for a game weekend) so we were more accepting of the issues than we would normally be, but our accommodations were less than stellar. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived (30 minutes after check-in time) and they wanted to downgrade us, so we had to offer to settle in while someone cleaned and prepped our room....

Rooms were dated, dingy and dirty. I have a better working TV in my garage. The bedding appeared to be clean but the pillows needed to be replaced several years ago..

Our room was located on some sort of large playroom with an open indoor space and tables. There were about 20 or 30 people there (families with kids) when we arrived at about 6:30 pm. We checked in and put our luggage and our cat in the room. We asked the clerk where we could go for dinner and he...

This place is a health hazard. Filthy, bugs, trash, sewage, no linen and the smell is overwhelming. Had to move to the Hilton and still trying to recover my money for 5 nights that we could not stay in.

This was absolutely the worst hotel I have EVER stayed in and I travel 3-4 days a week for more than 20 years. No linens were available due to a broken dryer, rooms were filthy and maid service was pathetic. No vacuum, didn't even make foldout bed and removed a pillow. I was forced to stay 2 nights at $225...
