“Just a place to shower and sleep”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Sketchy hotel, but it's cheap.
Pros: cheap. Beds were firm, but I like that. AC worked great. Overall clean, just very dated.
Cons: ice machine broken on 4th floor. Jetted tub not working. Dark parking lot that creeped me out. Sketchy clientele - I'm pretty sure I was invited to the pool by a meth head, so I never even looked at the pool.
Also, the hotel is next to a vacant outlet mall, making the whole thing just really weird and creepy.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

Very horrible service. No one answered the phone at room service, because there is no room service had to go down to get our own supplies needed for the room. Room smelled old. Bathroom tub was disgusting
This is the first night, we are here. We are not happy. If you just need a place to sleep and a shower it's fine but not a place to stay for any length of time.

The room was pretty clean, the beds were comforable. No bathroom fan. Lousy breakfast. What we saved on the room, we spent on breakfast!
The indoor pool was not open. Sign said it would open sometime after memorial day. Did I say it was an INDOOR pool?

I know it's the bargain basement and it lived up to that easily. Filthy. From the outside to the dark, dank and dirty hallways, there was no improvement once in the room. As it was for a simple overnight stay, we tried to make the best of it. After a quick run to Walmart for some cleaning supplies and some time to disinfect all surfaces, we managed to rest a little on the concrete slabs they claimed were beds. Ok. I will give it one positive. There were no bugs and believe me, I looked!! The indoor pool was closed until summer?? Ice machine was broken and the coffee maker was stored directly beside the toilet in the tiny bathroom (no coffee either) Needless to say we did not use that. Simply put, stay away!! Head to the Days Inn on the other end. Stayed there last year for a same one night, same price range. Not fancy, but it was clean! Unfortunately Hubbs forgot where we stayed last year....he won't make that mistake twice!!!
