It was old, rusty in areas, the bathroom was not clean, the tub was rusting at the drain and it just felt, overall, shabby.

I checked into my room, placed my food on the counter, got in the shower and thought I was ready to end my day. However, upon exiting the shower, I noticed "roaches" on my food. I quickly dressed and called the front desk. They weren't the least bit concerned, and did not offer to assist in finding a new property. I checked out and got my receipt, and they submitted for a refund from Travelocity. I had to find my own hotel, and pay more money. I will NEVER stay at the property again!!! Customer service is lacking, and concern for guest is horrible.

Not fancy, but clean

Hotel rooms are run down. Carpet is old, furniture is abused. However, location was good for us, it was clean and the bed was comfortable.
