Booked a room for a 2 night stay online. We are on a very tight budget so we thought OK, this is a great deal for the week-end. We requested a QUITE - non smoking room as our drive was over 8hrs. This place needs to be updated. The entrance from the road has large pot holes. The parking lot is in bad shape. My husband found nails, screws, and garbage all over the place when we parked to check in. And you could tell that this place must have week long guests, as there was a small grill and charcoal in the median between the parking spaces. We requested a quite - non smoking room. They gave us a room facing the main parking lot on the front of the building and our room was next to the main door that went from the lobby / vending area to the hall way. We had to listen to vehicles at all hours, the door from our hall way to the lobby / vending area banging shut at all hours, you could hear people talking in the hall way, and the TV in the next room. Our room smelled of stale smoke. Upon inspection of our room, we found hair in the shower / tub and used q-tip in the bathroom garbage (went to Wal-mart and bought cleaning supplies and cleaned the shower / tub ourselves). You could tell the carpet wasn't vacuumed (borrowed a vacuum from a friend). The bed squeaked when you sat on it and the sheet and mattress pad would not stay on the bed. Reported all of this to the front desk. Was asked if we wanted a different room but would have to pay more. We declined - maybe we should have paid more for a different room! Our last night there, we where woke up by a loud bang at 3:30am - some other guests where lighting off fire works in the parking lot! Upon check out these issues where brought up again to the front desk, we asked for a discount. We were declined. And they tried to charge us 2x for our room. Next time we will save a little more - to spend a little more for different hotel. I would suggest the same - spend a little more to stay else where.
