I called prior to check in about they’re restaurant and bar and was told they’d be up and operable when I arrived the pool was close at check in the restaurant was closed I proceeded to my assigned room which was clean aside from window view which was covered in dirt and large amounts of spider webbing and unfortunately the cable tv didn’t not work and I had to wait till the following morning for it to be repaired which was extremely disappointing the bar and restaurant never opened unfortunately this was a waste of my money I do not suggest this hotel to any one trying to save a penny I will not be returning to it Extremely disappointed.

The pool and lobby were nice ,but the smells in the hall and especially the rooms were awful. To the point where my kids and I became sick. It is overwhelming and ruined my time here. Glad I only payed for 1 night because I could never stay 2. I thought about sleeping in my car.

Hotel claimed that a restaurant was attached and open. Found out the restaurant closed four years ago. Also they advertised a breakfast buffet and eating area. That also was closed four years ago! Only watered down coffee and mini donuts from a bag. Not a breakfast in my book!

Not good.

I asked for a wake up call for 10:15 am & didn't get it. The ceiling was peeling, the coffee pot had old coffee in it, there was hair on towels & the bed, & someone kept calling us all night so we didn't get any rest.
