Nothing good about this place. Overpriced, filthy. We got our money back and left 10 min. After arriving. Will never use Travelocity again.

This place was horrible for the price. Paid $150 for a room that had dead bugs on the counter. Trash behind the bed. Holes in the blankets. Cats fighting in the parking lot. Gross

This property was dirty, had a horrible musty smell and the staff (overnight) was less than friendly. We had to have our Uber driver honk to wake her up to check us in!

Apparently some of the hotel staff assign rooms on a first come, first served basis, even if you have a reservation. I had a prepaid non smoking reservation and they gave all those rooms away, even to walk-in guests. We were offered a smoking room which I declined. The clerk I dealt with was very nice and apologetic. I immediately called Travelocity and got a refund.
