My son purchased a two night stay at this hotel for me and my husband for Christmas. We booked our trip and proceeded to drive two hours to the destination. Upon arrival the desk clerk gave us our room key, told us we would be moved to a better room tomorrow, and told us the manager would buy us a bottle of wine. The deal supposedly came with a bottle of wine already. We proceeded to our room which was something out of a horror movie. Reeked of cigarette smoke, carpet looked like someone changed their oil on it, bathroom shower curtain was covered with pink mildew, screens were falling off the window, scratch marks inside the door (I guess they have to lock their guests in to get them to stay) headboard, and tables were dirty with age, and there were two full sized beds instead of one queen or king. The exterior is not much better. The managers young dog was left unattended in the parking lot which is 20 feet away from a four lane highway. Needless to say we didnt stay here, and asked for a refund. I have never seen such a horrible disgusting hotel in my life! Go elsewhere!!!
