A night in hell
This place is terrible. There are people living there. They upgraded us to a different room because we aren’t smokers. We had to wait for them clean the new room, which was not clean at all. The floor was filthy, things were broken, tattered and torn. The sink was dirty just under the countertop. The air conditioner was loud, a light turned on and off all night, and the toilet ran periodically all night long. The hallway was filthy and smelled terrible.

2/10 Poor

This is the worst hotel. Dirty a bunch of kids running around. Theres a truck with a flat tire thats not plated and looks like its been sitting there for months. Thats just 1 truck. There are 2 other cars there also that are off the road and should be brought to the junkyard. Not to mention, I reserved a non smoking room .onths in advance. When I got there there was only a smoking room available so they set us up with that until 6 hiurs later when they can switch me in the original room I reserved. We couldnt stay in the smoking room because it smelled so bad we couldnt breathe. Lastly, we rent the room for our Bridesmaid to get ready for our wedding and couldnt leave the gowns in that room or they wouldve smelled like the room. You wouldve figured they wouldve comped us something but nope. I do not recommend this hotel. Disgusting and owners are very rude

The hotel room smelled like stale cigarettes, they had turned off the water to the bathtub in the room. The linens were stained and even at 2AM there was noise coming from adjoining rooms. I left and got a different hotel.
