    Super satisfied
    We had an amazing stay here! Fanily friendly rooms with no smoking and an option for a kitchenette for convienice. We loved the look of the hotel it felt like we were at an apartment complex. The rooms were clean and the service was polite and helpful. For this price and good quality we will definately be back next year.

    It was just ok, even the price was just ok.
    arrived at location and obviously looks run down. Lobby not open and directed to night window; Couldn't understand the hotel attendant behind plexiglass and mask when she was trying to explain things. When given back my room key, had to ask for my ID & CC back (hope that was a honest mistake); Got to the back of hotel, empty and somewhat dirty (not kept up); gate was a code entry. And though the gate key was written on key card envelope (since I couldn't hear or understand the receptionist) I didn't know that it was written there. So, I call there main number that was on the map to location they provided and the person on the other end of phone is not even on the premises. So, I drove back to the front and realized that the gate key was written on envelope. Once we got inside th gated area. it looked old and bit deserted. the room was decent size but, the counter had what looked like food crumbs left on it and the light above the sink was out. Bathroom was small but, functional. Curtains didn't fully close so, we had to shove it against the window. the bed was surprisingly comfortable. Not sure if I would stay again.

    Very comfortable stay. I've overslept past check-out time multiple times and staff is extremely understandable, as long as I go straight to the front desk to pay. It's very peaceful, quiet and great location at this hotel.

    The property looked very tired and worn. The electric outlets were so old and worn out they did not hold the plug for a charging cable. The plug literally fell out of all outlets. The A/C unit was decades old and I was unable to adjust temperature since the buttons and dials were from a century ago and it was barely running.

    horrible front desk staff
    It was ok the first few days. I had no problems except the room phone didnt work. The staff was friendly enough when i went to extend my stay. Then, the next 2 days went by and i overslept and it was passed check out time. I went tk the front desk to extend my stay one more night and then i was told that they would not re-rent to me. The 1st excuse was there was spmeone else waiting for that particular room, so i asked if i could change rooms, she said very rudely that no i couldnt do that either. I asked why. She said b/c i had a dog. I showed her my dogs service registration identification card, and she sais she didnt care about that. I could not re-rent i asked why since the 1st 2 reasons were complety invalid.... She says even more rudely, that ive had too many peolple in the room. I said really? Ive had one other person there the entire tkme, thats all. I told her that she should review whatever video footage they have and see clearly that that reason too was complete horseshit. when i asked for her name, she laughed in mh face and told me to leave before she called the police. I did absolutely nothing wrong and am extremely offended by her judging me by the way i look amd discriminating against me b/c i disnt look up to par on her social status personal requirements. It was overall a terrible experience all due to that womans ignorance and bigotry. I caused no problems and kept to myself the whole time i stayed there.

    The idea of no housekeeping and the maintenance guy brings towels and wash cloths. I was very disappointed at how there was no service of cleaning.
