When I made my reservation, I knew this was a "cheap hotel". But once I checked in the conditions were unlivable. My room did not have working heat, on the coldest night of the season so far this year. They were unable to get me another room until the next day as they were sold out. Room also smelled strongly of mold/mildew. Their website said the rooms had microwaves so I brought food I was unable to consume as it did not. The bed had sand between the alleged clean sheets. To be fair, the next day I was moved to another room in a different building that closely met the room pictured and had all amenities listed. The free "continental breakfast" consisted of instant grits, dry toast, an apple and coffee. The staff were all nice and personable.
