4/10 Fair

Killed four roaches in the room. Elevator was out. Stairway was disgusting, plus cobwebs that haven’t been cleaned in years. Many vagrant people living in the hotel and smoking pot every night outside the hotel, and around the pool area. Never staying here again.

2/10 Poor

I do not feel like the property should have been charging what they did per night. The property is very dated. While the lobby may be fine, and certainly had some design upgrades, the rooms were badly in need of renovations. Our room was musty and moldy. Upon entering the room, we were hit with the smell of both. The furniture was scratched up and dated. The leather desk chair was so worn that the top layer of the leather was completely gone. The ceilings had visible mold, the wall paint was chipped and bubbling in multiple places...probably from all the moisture in the room. The carpet in the room was also stained and dirty. It obviously had not been vacuumed prior to our arriving. My husband also saw bugs crawling around in the bathroom. We stayed in the room for maybe twenty minutes trying to decide if we could at least stay one night of our two-night stay as it was already late when we arrived, but decided to call for a change of room. Upon going to our second room, we passed a couple in the hallway who were complaining about their room. They were on their second room change! We heard them saying to their daughters in the room, "Don't touch anything!" Our second room was also musty smelling, but at least there was no smell of mold. The furniture in the second room was also very old and beaten up. The fridge was making a lot of noise also and kept us up at night. We wanted to unplug it but were afraid that the defrosted freezer would cause damage in the room.

I booked a room with a single King bed, but all they had were double bed rooms. I was not happy about that. The room was also a bit musty. We had to purchase some air fresheners to mask the smell. Maybe the carpets need to be replaced or deep cleaned. The staff was friendly, but the hotel it self was meh. Not what I usually expect when we stay at a holiday Inn.
