“Want sleep? Won't get it here!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

The "non smoking" room (119) smells of stale smoke, and due to that, we get a knock on our door while asleep, and then a phone call from the front desk rudely saying, "A neighbor of yours says you are smoking in your room! I will need to come check the room!" OMgosh! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! Being non smokers we were not smoking of course, but we waited for this woman to come and "check" the room. I called 10 mins later to ask if she'd hurry so we could go back to sleep...she said "I don't need to, I trust you"...WHAT?? REALLY?? She woke us for what???? And no apology at all. In addition, the front desk staff and house keepers felt the need to yell down the hall to each other to have a conversation. Needless to say we got very little sleep!
Stay if you have insomnia, otherwise you may want to find another hotel,
The only nice thing I can say is that the manager on duty was a very nice man.

We were surprised at how nice the hotel actually was. Worried at first because the reputation of Red Roof Inn's but hotel was very nice. Small but staff was friendly. Let us check in early, which is always nice. Hotel was very clean. Pool area small and pool deck in need of repair in some places but minor issues. Breakfast was typical; biscuits and gravy, cold cereal, boiled eggs, danish, toast, etc. No waffle maker however which is what I always look forward to. Room nice, clean. Bathroom small but well laid out and worked ok as long as only 1 person used it at a time. Bed was ok except for plastic mattress pad which made mattress lumpy in some spots; and pillows were so "stuffed" that I felt like my neck was breaking. I did end up using a beach towel for my pillow so it worked out. TV was nice. As usual walls were thin and you could hear people walking down the halls but I expect that at most places anyway when you are around crowds. Biggest problem with the room was the big gap underneath the door; it lit the whole room enough at night you didn't have to worry about tripping if you got up in middle of night!. And there was no clock radio. All in all though, we were well pleased. Was better than the Best Western we stayed at in December and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an inexpensive place to stay that is close to casino.

Room Tip: Ask for room on top floor so you don't hear everyone walking/running up and down the halls.

Booked a room well in advance. prior to going my wife had a accident and was in a wheel chair.
Contacted weeks prior and requested a change to handicap or 1st floor. Upon arrival no arrangement had been made . At that time inquired to change to handicap room was informed
they only had one and there was no couch for a second person to sleep on. I had originally re-
quested a smoking room so I requested none smoking so we could at least get on the first floor.
I was then told there was none available. Shortly after my wife noticed a couple come in and request a 1st floor room and received the courtesy. My wife inquired and was told That I had insisted on smoking. This was in fact not true. I had asked to change to non-smoking.
Room had a strong odor of insecticide. Needless to add small black bugs were found that evening in the room. Breakfast offered the following morning was scarce and what they offered
had run out before we got down there at 8am . Room was not cleaned. when my wife inquired why they told her that we left a do not disturb sign on the door till 12:15. We left the room at 10:15
and there was no sign on the door. No offer was made to get us clean towels or wash clothes.
When we left the room at 10:15 my wife even talked to the cleaning personnel who had their cart parked next to our door. on the next night the room was left dirty , garbage was left in the room and more bugs were noticed. A/C kicked out and would not come back on . I would under
no circumstance suggest any friend stay there. I will never stay there again. Staff had a problem
and showed no effort to help out. Staff seems to lie a lot.

This trip was different as I had my girlfriend with me this time. It was a moderately quiet stay. Still a lot of guests coming back from the casino at anywhere between 11pm and 1am and they're a bit noisy.

This is the second time I've been assigned a room that was not OK. The time before this very last stay they checked me into a room that was still occupied. This time, the room had no microwave or fridge. Sadface.

They did have a new keycard ready for me when I called them about the issue and it was corrected immediately.

LOVING the new TV upgrades! Very nice touch.

The second floor stair door on the east side of the hotel is not closing properly and slams pretty hard. Get a room away from that area if you can.

Still didn't get a chance to use the pool or exercise facilities this time, but the pool looked fine.

Otherwise, a good stay as usual!

Stairwell door slams hard all night, thin walls, outdated, womens panties stuffed in a towel cubby, 1/8 of 1 roll of toilet paper. Old Tube TV with no channel guide. Bed was big but uncomfortable. I probably will not be back. Price was low, as expected with this rating.

Hello Valued Guest,

Your review suggests that you have encountered more than one problem during your recent visit, and for that I would like to apoligize.

We take room cleanliness very seriously and we double check all of our rooms after they have been cleaned to ensure that no mistakes have been made. As the rest of the us, nobody is perfect and mistakes do happen so please excuse this very rare incident.

Our building structure is relativley old, however, we are constant upgrading and maintaing mode to keep the building as updated as we possibly can. Our rooms have been last renovated in summer 2011 and so in our efforts to ensure guest satisfaction we are constantly making strides in renovating/upgrading.

As for the tube TV's, great news! We just finished instillation of our all brand new 37' inch flat screen TV's. We hope our new TV's make our value more greater than what the guest pay.

I thank you for taking the time to writing about your experience and hope that your next stay will be a great one!

Thank You!
