7.1 Good
Cons:Dirty towels every day. Dirty carpet. Dirty walls with holes.
2.0 Poor
Pros:This was so dirtiest place. The staff was super slow and unorganized. Didn’t even stay
Cons:This was an unsafe looking place. I left. Didn’t even stay. This place was for druggies. I left . I felt so unsafe. Don’t waste your money. No families or even women were present. The lobby hadnt been cleaned in years. The windows were broken in some rooms when we drove around. Super sketchy people were staying here. The staff was so unorganized. They keys were actuall keys and. It a card key. Didn’t wanna even leave my car parked there. This place was probably nicer back in the day but the new owners have let this place go down the drain.
2.8 Poor
Pros:It's in a good area.
Cons:-Water went from freezing to scalding (made the shower a kind of fun russian roulette type situation) - The smoke detector went off for 15 min straight - Found another man's clothes in our room so we knew it wasn't clean - When my wife asked for help the guy behind the desk thought it was funny what had happened and apparently chuckled - When they sent a maid up to repair stuff (why) she didn't knock and walked in on me changing - And on a personal note, probably the ugliest rooms I have seen in years
6.8 Okay
Pros:The staff was friendly. The building is old but they update the rooms. Room was clean.
Cons:The internet wouldn't connect. It even made it difficult to use your own data. The shower curtains were too short so when we showered the floor would be flooded.
6.8 Okay
Pros:Great location and easy check in!
Cons:With some repairs and new furniture this place could be fantastic!
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:We stayed here for a wedding weekend. It was very easy to check in, and the customer service was great. I booked it at first because it was pretty cheap, close enough to the venue, and I had the option to cancel the booking up until a day before. Very accessible rooms. The pool was right outside the room. The hot tub was nice as well. It was not the most modern place but it had character and just felt comfortable.
Cons:Would love a vending machine with snacks and not just drinks for late night munchies. There is a jack in the box near by but we did not want to drive, and it only has drive through open. But we could have been more prepared with snacks beforehand. I think it could be a little cheaper for the condition of the place, but, they have to stay in business and they are probably competitive prices for the location etc, and we payed it so all is ok.
2.8 Poor
Pros:The staff was very helpful
Cons:The facility was in poor condition the first unit was dingy and the power did not work the door broke on the second room.
6.2 Okay
Cons:the staff watched our coming and going, we were visiting with other family members & staff came outside to watch them. The mattress caved in middle. We did not leave any valuables or money in room. Other tenants-- made sure the alarm for my truck was on. Will never come here again.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Love the location. The friendly staff.
2.6 Poor
Pros:About the only thing that was half way decent about it was its location.
Cons:The room reeked of marijuana and cigarettes. Three were never enough towels and when we asked for one more we were asked "why". I felt very uncomfortable leaving my belongings in the room because neither door had a proper lock. I don't feel I would ever stay here again . To be honest I don't think that I would ever trust for reservations ever again either. I've stayed at other establishments elsewhere with the same rating and I wasn't as disappointed with them at all. I feel as though I was misled , and I'm very unhappy .
