“hotel from hell”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Room was dirty, cobwebs,bugs, noise from above till 4am. Stranger at door near dark requesting ride to mkt(learned it was maint man). No wakeup call as requested, no tissues, shampoo. Breakfast items ran out(coffee), staff slow to refill. The staff(Indian/Pakistani?) seem to have a different idea of "hospitality". Chose this for dog friendly and back away from hwy, the only positives.

The reviews I read we're all good so decided to try this place. Very disappointed with everything.
Hotel clerk could have cared less. Room had not been deep cleaned for a long time. TV had a distorted picture. Could not get NBC(Olympics). Furniture old and uncomfortable, light bulbs were out and not replaced. We should have known better. We are the only ones staying here tonite.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

We recently stayed here because of the "polar vortex" that made its way across the country, which froze people and pipes. Our pipes were frozen for two days, and on the second day we could no longer go without a shower, so we decided to camp out at this hotel. (update...pipes became unfrozen without bursting, all is well with our world again). Hotel is is fine for a night stay or two. It comes with the basics, including continental breakfast. Rooms were clean. TV worked fine. There was a microwave and fridge. Unit we stayed in was far away from the front desk, way in the back of the property. Furniture could use updating, a handle was off one of the dressers. All in all, it was A-ok for our purposes. It ended up being a fun stay. There is a good Mexican restaurant right next door. Didn't eat there during this stay, but I have been there before and the food is good and reasonably priced.

Staff was very friendly,. The room was clean, however the following items need to be replaced carpet and shower curtain rod attachment to the wall. We stayed in building 3. It looks like building 1 was being renovated. All in all we would stay here again.
