It seemed like no one knew what they were doing. The room wasn't ready, the office person struggled to find another room for us and the room we were assigned was not very clean. I wasn't even sure the linens were clean. It was late in the evening and we knew other lodgings were all full or we would not have stayed. I should have read the reviews before I booked the room.

We got there after 6pm. Front office was closed. Picked up our key. While warming up our food we saw several cockroaches in the room. We called and got answering machine and no call back. We wanted to leave but got stuck there as there was no reply. It's just a horrible experience seeing roaches at that place.

This is a never again property for us. It looks as though the sheets were dirty and definitely stained pillow cases and sheets. There were no wash cloths given. We checked in at 6:00pm no one was here to greet us they were closed and left all our information in a mail box for anyone to look at and steal. We checked out at 7:45 am no one here again. I know I didn’t pay for a luxury room however I expect a clean bed and lights that work in the room.

Very, very disappointed. Fixtures in room were clean but very low end and basic. Plastic pillow covers. No hot water- lukewarm at best. Only two very small towels in room for 3 guests. No way to contact staff. ASked housekeeping to please leave more towels. Called office to please leave more towels. Stopped in to get new key and asked desk to give or bring new towles. Ended up with wet / shared towels and cold showers for 3 days. Was told repeatedly that they were short staffed. Then told they only cleaned rooms so that they could turn them over. Then overheard one staff member tell another that we were the "ones complaining about towels" as I stood 3 feet away. I am not a fussy person. I can work with stressed out people. I just would have liked recognition that we did actually pay a lot of money to stay here for 3 days and the experience kind of soured our long- awaited vacation. I should have known when the check-in paperwork said 3 times "no refunds given for any reason".

This property looked fine based on the Travelocity photos, but this is a classic example of "caveat emptor." When we arrived, we were allowed to check in but were advised, "the rooms were not ready." This was fine. We headed out and returned several hours later. When I opened the door to my room, it had clearly not been serviced. The beds were unmade, it smelled of smoke, etc. I went to the office and the gentleman there put me in another room. On my way to the new room, a few guests decided to let their dogs give chase - which they thought was amusing. Obviously this property has no pet policy in force. Later, as my fellow traveler and I were in his room, a woman who should be the spokesperson for Marlboro just keyed into the room without knocking and confronted me on why I had switched rooms and said she would be moving my luggage into the original room which had obviously not been cleaned or properly serviced. She left and then came back a second time (at least she knocked the 2nd time) for some unknown reason. The whole experience was unsettling and we dared not leave our items in the room when we went to work the next day. Instead of staying for the second night, we left early and after the fact, the hotel overcharged my card and has yet to return my call to correct the issue. I travel a lot. I've stayed in a lot of different hotels and motels. This was by far one of the worst experiences I've had.

This is a very nice place but the maid came in, took her generous tip, left the trash, didnt make the bed, didnt touch the towels, and didnt replace the coffee.
