Didn't have enough supply of toiletries like shampoo and towels, which is something you would never expect a hotel to run out of. But breakfasr was great and the room was generally comfortable and spacious. Location was also perfect.

Potential to be a 4 star hotel.
The hotel itself had the potential to be a 4 star rating. The room was pretty, and it came with a large personal balcony which was nice. The bathroom itself was TINY. Plus there was big metal rod that was sticking out from the side of the bed, however covered up by the bed skirt to where you couldn't see it. Definitely hit the ankle on it and split it open. When I told management, he said sorry, and that he would take care of it. Also, the first time we ran the sink, it backed up and started to fill with what looked like sand, and some sort of debris. Again, told the manager and he said he would move us, and give us a discounted rate. Although it wasn't discounted at all. It took an act of congress to get towels brought up. You could clearly tell that the housekeeping wasn't all that great. The surfaces were clean. The bedding was clean, but you could definitely tell that there wasn't very much details put into the cleaning. I.e baseboards were filthy. Behind the doors were caked with dirt, found a whole DVD case beside the bed, between the wall and bed. If the things I outlined were fixed, I would definitely stay there again. It was in a great location. And the room itself was pretty.

Torch Lite Inn was worth the money!!
I was skeptical at first, because the surrounding area is a little beat up, but the room was quite nice. Everything was very clean, the receptionist gave options, the inside of the room was well cleaned and comfortable. Also, the free parking was awesome!
