2/10 Poor

Don't show up after 8:00 pm
Terrible experience. My flight got delayed so I got in after 8:00 pm and was not able to check in. I never thought to even read the fine print to see what time I needed to check in by, every other hotel I've ever stayed at has somebody at the desk 24/7. The fine print also states that they do not give refunds for no shows. I'm very upset, $90 down the drain and needed to find somewhere else to stay.

4/10 Fair

Kind of horrifying
This place was pretty awful. The room was dirty. The blankets and sheets had cigarette burns in them. The smoke detector was broken and hanging from the ceiling. The bathroom ceiling sagged and had a huge crack in it. Random screws and nails stuck out from the walls. At least the front desk guy was polite. I am NEVER going back there.

6/10 Good

average but not much appeal
This hotel is more of a cheap version of a motel six. Dated interior/older model tv/no breakfast. Think 1990"s style. Bed was comfortable and not much road noise. Surrounding area I wound not wander around at night.
