No Hot water, one small face towels, no telephone cord. Cricket in the bed under linen. Opening under door at least 1/3. AC Vent completely molded, Floor carpeting stained. We tried to get our money back and the manager would not answer phone, call us back or appear on site. We tried to get a refund but via the receptionist...

We checked in the hotel on 9/11/2016 and were supposed to check out on 9/16/2016 (5 nights stay). We actually ended out checking out at 7 am on 9/12/2016 due to the fact that the hotel room and property was ABSOLUTELY disgusting. Room was full of dead crickets: near the bed, kin the bathroom, on a chair, even one on...

This, by far is the worst place to stay. It looked good on their website, so, were fooled! The pool of the picture showed a very large pool, but, there are actually bigger pools from walmart! While the staff here is very nice, the constant noise from the restaurant next door, will keep you up most of the night. Also,...

A dog friendly hotel that fits the common conception about pet friendly rooms- smells like dog, crumbs on the floor, stains & dog hair on the comforter. We fortunately travel with extra sheets/pillows/quilts/cleaning supplies so this room got cleaned up & disinfected during our 3 nights stay. This location is not very family/pet friendly as cops were in the parking...

I just needed to sleep and the toilet running was constant. The AC made funny noises. The hot water never got hot enough. The sheets didn't quite fit the bed and came off the corners. I ended up going to the store for disinfectant spray.

We booked a nonsmoking room that wreaked of cigarette smoke. The front desk guy offered to change rooms, but from the looks of the place, we figured all rooms would smell the same. The room was clean enough and comfortable enough for the price. We expected to get what we paid for and have to admit it was economical and...

By all means- come stay at this palace and enjoy the resident crackheads as they wander the parking lot and hallways with abandon. Revel in the disgust that is the stained and pockmarked bed sheets. Enjoy indoor and outdoor living simultaneously as the gap in the door so playfully allows. Stare in wonderment at the front desk help who try...
