2/10 Poor

Everything was very old, very deteriorated, that hotel needs a remodeling, in the photos it looks very good, but it is terrible, I would not stay in that hotel again, I do not recommend it, the carpet is very dirty and old and stinks

4/10 Fair

Very disappointing for a special needs child.
I was disappointed, we have a special needs child and I asked for wheel chair accessible and there was no room to get around in there. Just because you can roll a wheel chair in does not make it a handicapped room, We had to bring an oxygen concentrator, suction machine, percussion vest and machine among special g-tube feeds and medical supplies. It was very rough and they wouldn't move us. Then when I checked out I needed a printed copy of the bill and they said they didn't do that. We have stayed there before and I have always gotten a printed receipt, They said it will be by email and nothing yet and I told them I don't have a Printer.

It was a good location, clean, good breakfast and good parking. Very reasonable price for location. Room needs to be updated. Wall paper in the bathroom was peeling, grout around tile looked moldy. Carpet was in poor shape.
