6/10 Good

This place is not customer driven, I tried to check out at 7am and a sign on the front door said open at 9am, place was old and hillbilly looking, not worth the money charged, expedia should separate themselves from this place,

4/10 Fair

Slightly disappointing
The front desk half was amazing he was very accommodating. The room was newly renovated but the locking system on the door was very insecure. The door was damaged and easily could have been pushed in. The concrete outdoor patio and step areas were very dirty. A lot of pigeon droppings and overall it needs a good power wash.The other complaint was that we booked it on for $170 and when we got to the hotel he said they’re going rate was only 139. This was disappointing as I was charged the full amount on my credit card

Clean beds and clean bathroom and floor tile. Carpet and walls were dirty and upon closer inspection, the shower had pink mildew. Would not stay again, unless only option

Would not stay hear again...
On first impression, it looks clean from the exterior and the front office. Then you see the long term stay rooms, dying or dead plants sitting outside room doors. The room cleanliness was poor.

2/10 Poor

It was nice and central to everything. The tv didn't work properly, the coffee pot didn't work. They had some shady looking people living in some of the rooms. They were very loud. Will never stay at this establishment again.
