The workers here are very friendly, but that is the only positive I can say. The room decor is old, including the tube television, which was broken. We got a non-smoking room, but it had a weird odor, and smoke from the rooms next door easily filtered into our area. The comforter on the bed had large burn holes, and... More

For a one night stay, I guess it was OK .. - No Ice Machine close - had to go to front desk for Ice and they gave out a small plastic bag of ice - Rooms smelled musty - AC unit was very loud and room temperature was hard to keep constant

Ok first of all, I dislike hotels where the entrance to the room is on the outside instead of the inside. So that automatically bumped the hotel's quality down. When I entered the room, I noticed it was pretty spacious. I was in a king room with a sofa bed. I had use the bathroom as soon as I walked... More

Well how shall I start? first let me say that the staff here was great. The lady at the front desk was nice and all my requests were well responded to. That being said there were some definite issues with the hotel. The first was that the room was old. Cracking paint and rust also did not smell really good... More

Smells old and smoking-even in a non smoking room. Paking is right in front of your room, so you can hear car doors slam all night long. Bathroom drain was clogged. Hotel is right off interstate so it is very dangerous to get off a four lane highway to pull into hotel. Hotel was cheap and last minute. We had... More

I paid 120.00 a night to stay here for the last night of the DNC. I tried to get a room here the night before but could not afford the 300.00 rate. The rate here should be 25.00. The rooms are old and cleaned as well as can be when they have paint peeling. The tub was moldy and black... More

I found this location after searching for an inexpensive option near the airport, as I needed just somewhere to stay overnight with two kids prior to taking a flight in the morning. I didn't want or need anything fancy, and this certainly fit that bill. Room overall was pretty clean and servicable for a night, but the pretty loud air... More

The price was average. The room was dirty with mold on the shower walls. The heater made enough noise to wake you. When I called the desk at 9 in the evening for extra towels I had to wait for the guard to come on duty to unlock the storage room and deliver them. He was wearing a bullet proof... More
