“Regret”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

You get what you pay for. The room was less than comfortable. First sign was the leaky faucet in the bathtub. I pushed down the shower button, and red/rusty/brown water came flowing out. The bathtub was not clean. The phone did not work. There wasn't a coffee pot for the coffee maker. The "fitness room" does not exist. There wasn't an alarm clock in the room. I had made the reservation in December online, however when we arrived, it took a while for someone to come and register me. There wasn't a reservation that he could find but thank goodness I had printed off my confirmation email from Travel.com. The maid came in while we were out and left on the lights. The beds were not made but the towels were replaced. The toilet paper was not filled however the empty Kleenex box was replaced. The carpeting feels sticky. There was not vending machines for ice. We were here for 4 days and will never come back again nor refer this "Bates Motel" to anyone else.

We booked this hotel for a couple of our construction workers that were doing a project in the area and needed a decent place to rest and relax. However this place was beyond nasty, the shower curtain would not stay up, the tub looked like it had never been washed and was filled with rust and mold in the corners. The bed smelled horrible and the sheets, well they would have been better off sleeping in their dirty work clothes. The breakfast was a joke, a piece of sausage that was wrapped in plastic to heat in the microwave.
We travel all over the southeast doing commercial roofing and have stayed in many places and this one is by far one of the worst. I'm actually sorry we had to waste our money on such a nasty place. Don't waste your money and stay here not even as a last resort. Please choose wisely. I hope this review helps others not to make the mistake of staying here.

Room Tip: No room is good, the hotel is old, smelly and the staff are not friendly either.

This is your average motel when on the move. The room and bathroom were clean, if not very new or tastefully decorated. Equipment (fridge, iron) was in good condition and the bed was comfortable. In the morning, we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, although it mostly consisted of the usual oversweet fare of muffins, biscuits and waffles.

As I checked around 8:30 and there was no reason for me to check the bathroom, I was stunned the next morning when I went to shower. I hopped in to see a bar of soap on the ledge. Not a big deal, someone forgot to pick up a used bar of soap. Gross, but tolerable. Then I closed the shower curtain...exposing HUGE patches of mold starting at the bottom, finishing mid-body level. Doesn't get any worse than that right? Wrong. I look up to the shower rod, following the mold trail, and what's hanging off it? A pink pair of ladies undies. So upon checkout, I tell the desk clerk what happened and he just looks at me straight-faced and said, "Well, sorry about that. Here's your receipt, have a nice day." Not a single offer to reimburse a part of the cost, nothing to show me they were actually sorry about having the worst bathroom at a hotel in which I've ever stayed. This is simply unacceptable. Had I not been late to a wedding already, I would've fought him tooth-and-nail to get my money back.

Overall I am very satisfied with this inn. The rooms looked somewhat dated, but they were extremely clean and comfortable. The beds were perhaps the most comfortable and plush that I have ever slept upon and I had a great night's sleep. The furnishings were in very good shape and the carpet seemed nice and clean. The room smelled very nice and fresh. The TV was nice, but there were only about half as many stations as were listed on the channel card. The bathroom was nice and big and clean, but they only supplied 2 sets of towels. The exterior was very fresh and attractive and well kept. The linens were very clean but I feel the bedspreads, shower curtains and window coverings should be updated. They were clean, however, just a little dated and dingy. The breakfast room was nice and large, clean and well stocked. They offered the usual toast and muffins, but also had a Waffle Machine and sausage biscuits. The lobby is very beautiful and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The Double rooms only had full-size beds, instead of queens, but they were the most comfortable matt...

I recently booked a room through this site, attracted by the location and the price. The rooms were nice! I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the bed was, and how nice the furniture was. Housekeeping was very attentive, ensuring we had clean towels and extra coffee for our two night stay. Its close to plenty of great restaurants and shopping.
