Do NOT stay here. Its cheap but not worth it. Very old & worn. Hole in bathroom door. Smoking holes in bedding, "Residue" of some type on furniture. Stained sofa. Just gross. Barking dogs at kennel next door. Have no idea why anyone would give this property a good review???

A good review usually lists the good and bad things for a hotel. Unfortunately, I can't think of anything good to say about this property. I guess it isn't very expensive, so that's good. The property is very run down and showing its age. There is a dog kennel behind the property so there are dogs barking at first light and all day. The hotel says it doesn't allow smoking, but every day the hallways were filled with cigarette smoke and a man would come by with a bottle of Febreze on occasion. The property reeked of cigarettes. There was a room of extremely loud people next to us banging their door all night. We complained three times but nothing was done. When we checked out, the clerk listened and said the police were called, but never apologized or tried to do anything - he just wanted to get rid of us. There is no elevator in the hotel so if you are on the second floor, you have to carry everything up a narrow stairway. The beds were hard. The carpet in the room was worn and torn showing the sub-floor in places. The bathroom was a mess. We show dogs and stay in cheaper hotels a lot, so our expectations aren't very high. This place was so bad it couldn't even meet any of our lowest expectations.

Room Tip: Stay anywhere else.

Nice people work there, but the hotel defintiely needs some work. The room has been updated some with colors and pictures, but the furniture is banged up and a bit dirty. And wow the hallways and doors and baseboards and other things need some replacement for me to consider this place again. It was okay for one night, but I am glad it was me and a couple of sons. My wife would have freaked at what we got for the price we paid.
Breakfast was minimal but clean. The lobby is nicer than the rest of the place.
I would check around before staying here again.

One night stay for school function. Had that smell but we saw "Wet Carpet" signs on most of the doors on our floor (1st). Guess they did carpertt cleaning earlier. Had a Dollar Tree close so we bought some air freshener. Breakfast was good too.

We stayed here because it is a dog friendly facility. The room was better then expected for the price. Thanks LaQuinta..I'm not sure how many character's this is now but 200 is required. I guess that was not enough.

Room Tip: Poo, on first floor outside

Came from Louisiana for a wedding last October. No handicap rooms available. No elevator. My brother had to carry my Mom up the stairs. Room was dark and nasty. She went to shut curtains to change her clothes from our trip. She fell and broke her hip. Ran downstairs and told the clerk needed to call ambulance. Mother went to hospital with broken hip. Stayed in hospital for a week...missed the wedding. Then was transfered to rehab in Cullman for a month. When we checked out the next day we were asked several times how our stay was...each time said our mother broke her hip! The reply from them was oh sorry bout that...other than that how was your stay. YOU KILLED MY MOTHER!
