The inside of the rooms are clean and more recently update. The exterior is worn down without much curb appeal. location is ok, but with a lot of traffic can be hard getting out. Value was good for quality of room.

Thank you for your patronage. We appreciate your input. I understand the way you feel. The hotel is undergoing renovations and the sidewalk will be updated near the end. I apologize for the poor impression.

It’s a good place to rest but a lot of the items in the room are rusted and the walls had marks all over them. The tub had stains the romote control did not have working batteries and the towels were a little on the rough side.

Bed bugs

Room had bed bugs! Woke up with blood spots on the sheets and welts on our skin everywhere. We contacted the hotel after we left and they did not seem concerned at all.

Location is it

The location was the only selling point. The room as facing the extremely busy Homecoming traffic and it was loud. Little to no soundproofing ground level rooms. The shower was so hard to turn on I had to get the manager to come in and turn it on because I was afraid of pulling it out of the wall. The TV reception was so bad that the blurry picture gave my wife a headache.

I would recommend for a quick stay like mine. The place needs some serious updating.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: outdated room
The size of the room was ideal for one person. The bed was good, but the television was outdated and there was no sports on the cable system. The furniture was old and it showed.

Nothing special. Good location for sporting events

Pros: Free breakfast, nice staff
Cons: overpriced
Overpriced, but adequate. Nice people at the desk. I was unpleasantly surprised that they couldn't even consider a room change from the one I was assigned to. I have a bad back and because of no elevator wanted to switch from 2nd floor to first. They wouldn't even look into it.

margainal lodging, decent price

Room had a distinctive musty smell that even penetrated my clothes. There was some wood trim damage and the bathroom towel rack was pulled out from the wall. The complimentary ""breakfast"" was marginal at best. The price was the best part as we paid about $** for the room, but I really don't think we got real $** value.

pleasantly surprised

We stayed @ this property last weekend. We were a little leary based on previous reviews. Most of the hotels in town were sold out. This property was recently remodeled. We got a great rate and the room was clean - staff was friendly. Only negative was continental breakfast was lacking in options & quantity.

Worst Hotel Ever

Having flown for the airlines for many years and seeing some of the best and worst hotels in the world, I can honestly say this is one of the worst. The biggest gross-out was the mold on the coffee grounds left in the in-room coffee maker. GROSS!!!
