“DO NOT STAY HERE!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

WORST HOTEL EVER! Made a reservation for a NON SMOKING room and was told when I checked in that they were "unable to accommodate" my non smoking room stay and placed me in a smoking room. I am SEVERELY allergic to smoke so I advised the staff that I could not stay in a room that was smoking. She stated, "I am sorry, we cannot accommodate your reservation." So I HAD to leave. I was charged for the stay when I NEVER STAYED THERE BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT ACCOMMODATE MY RESERVATION! WHAT WAS THE POINT IN MAKING A RESERVATION IF THEY DON'T OBEY IT?! DO. NOT. EVER. STAY. HERE!

Room Tip: Go across the street to the Hampton Inn!

The old lady in the kitchen who oversees the breakfast is friendly and warm. It feels as if you are in someone's home and she is taking care of you. That experience more than the quality of food is memorable. Coffee was a disaster. So diluted! This hotel is located right next to two other motels (quality inn and days inn). So if you want to just crash for the night and want the cheapest room, price should be your criteria. But if you arrive early and want to enjoy the view from up the hill in the evening or morning, then this hotel should be worth your time. Every room has a microwave and fridge.

The breakfast was very limited, ended up eating at McDonald's. The room felt dingy and we couldn't get the balcony door to open. The Wi-Fi was excruciatingly slow and the signal was very weak so the tablets had a hard time connecting. It was a road trip stop for us and for that purpose it was just fine, can't complain about the quality of sleep. The bed was comfortable but the comforter was very thin.

Our stay was October 25th. It is up on a hill with a great view if you stay on the front of building. Property was seasonably clean and check in went well. It was the first place of four hotels in five nights that gave us a room with a sliding door off the rear parking lot to walk our dog. Huge area for dog walking! Room was roomy and clean. We are not too picky on how worn room is, as much as how clean it is. We were happy happy here. As with most hotels we stayed at, they did not charge us a dog fee even though we let them know on check-in that we had a dog. I would definitely stay here again!
