The hotel stinks very badly. The police showed up to take a very intoxicated woman away. The same woman that was swearing at the air in the hallway when we went to our room. Two rooms had the doors open and the rooms were visible to anyone walking the hallway. They were both filled with garbage, empty alcohol bottles and... More

I stayed at this place for two nights with another guy on a motorcycle trip to Milwaukee. The front desk people were fine, and the restaurant/bar next door was pretty good. The rooms were cheap, which is probably why my friend picked it, and the only reason to stay there. Let's put it this way, my wife would *never* stay... More

The hotel is dated but had a very nice bed. Huge issue with WIFI! Didn't work for 2 days. They say it's just an issue. Close to the airport, very nice family restaurant attached. Located on the main street, the staff was nice. And the rooms were clean. Microwave and fridge!

This is a run down side-of-the-road dump! The hotel clerk has a nasty attitude and it appears that the customers are bothering her by checking in. The best thing I did was refuse to check in after she described the hotel policy on check-in as "if you don't want to sign all these documents (without reading them) you don't have... More

I walked into the lobby after a long airport delay, and approached an awkward situation of not being greeted by the men at the desk, sitting with earbuds in and clearly wanting nothing to do with helping me. I mustered up a chipper, friendly greeting and got a monotonous "and you are?" and an eye roll in response to my... More

Room appeared to have new mattresses which was good to see because I was a little skeptical after the looks of the rest of the hotel. Now they need to spend money on new pillows.
