The rates are great, but you get what you pay for. Room was ok - at best. Our locks did not, but it was not too clean. Floor in the bathroom was sticky, carpet was dirty. Bed linen seemed clean, and we did sleep well. We did not try the breakfast, mostly because of the room condition. We went across...

Okay. Definitely should have read the reviews. We got the room for $56 and change tax and all. Wasn't worried because I stayed at an econo lodge in Chattanooga this past winter for $35 a night. And it was wonderful. Up here to see a sick family member. On a budget. Okay. Here goes. They are remodeling the hotel. So...

The room was a steal at $40.00, but that was in line with the condition of the room. Dresser drawer, was broken, carpet was new, nice microwave & fridge. But main concern transits live there on a full time basis. Chairs on sidewalk, pit bulls, counted 3. Renters , guest BBQ on sidewalk. Most serious complaint, my daughter and me...

When we checked in we were given a room that someone had obviously slept in the bed. We went back to the desk and was given another room. When we got in this room we found trash in the trash can still, trash in one of the night stands and dirty pantyhose in the other night stand. The hotel advertised...

The receptionist was friendly and helpful. Otherwise, the place had virtually nothing positive about it. My room was rather worn and scummy in a few places, though it did have a working microwave and refrigerator. The parking lot looked as if it had recently been used as a bombing range. The bathroom was reasonably clean, but needed some cosmetic repairs....

This place is a dump, and is probably on its way to being condemned. The door to our room had obviously been kicked in several times; the secondary lock was ripped off and the door barely closed all the way. The room had a nasty odor. Bedding had old stains. The remote for the tv didn't work, and it was...

First of all, it was 10 p.m. when we got here and there were no lights on the stairs to the 2nd floor. The first room we got didn't have a microwave but had a fridge which we needed. There was no remote control for the TV. Went to the office, got a remote. Then found out the TV didn't...

Floor near the bathroom had started to bubble up under the carpet. No clock in the room, burn holes in the bed linens. Shows a pool...

The ceiling was falling down and had been repaired many times and painted over in many areas. The continental breakfast was worst I had ever seen. One ice machine and no vending machines. Carpet was filthy. TV outdated.
