Get what you pay for.
The staff was friendly. And that was about it for the good. The internet is horrible, the clear coat on the floor was peeling up everywhere and ended all of my things. Just everywhere really, a bunch of Druggies hanging out and being loud during the early AM hours.(12-3) people fighting outside. If you’re out there Methin around. It may be the spot for you. But I would never stay there with my family.

OK Could've been better.
Was warm and comfortable. However, I am tired of hotels not cleaning rooms on a regular basis. After working hard all day and into the evening it was a hassle to go and ask for clean towels. The office was not open in the morning early enough to make the exchange before heading out to work. I really it would have been nice to have cleaners come in while we are at work to do all this rather than expecting their customers to be unpaid labor.

2/10 Poor

Terrible experience
The room smell was overwhelming when we opened the door. It smelled like cigarette smoke. We asked for another room and that one was even worse. We opened all the windows. The bed and pillows smelled of smoke. It was awful. We did not sleep well. The bathroom sink was kind of clean.
