Needs improvement
We left the hotel. Asking for refund. Elevator was not working. Didnt tell me until after we paid. Room smelled badly; floors not clean in bathroom and bedroom; pubic hair on sheets; evidence of bed bug feces; stairwell smelled of marijuana and cigarette smoke. Young woman at front desk amicable.

Give it a chance, well worth it.
Hotel sits by itself and sim site they wish the surrounding areas were kept up nicer but the hotel itself felt safe and nice. Town is very nice and tons to do locally. Hallways had a smell that felt musty and damp. But outside was super humid so that may cause that some. Opened door to room and was pleasantly surprised. Super roomy, clean, cool. Very nice This is an extended stay hotel so no free breakfast. But they do offer coffee, it’s meh but does the trick if you don’t want to go buy coffee. Didn’t ever see ice machine. But laundry that we needed was free and they had 3 units so no waiting. Soap is over priced so bring your own. Overall really pleased and it was very affordable and convenient to where we needed to be both days.

***Watch your trucks!***
Several trucks on the property were broken into during the night, four that we saw as we were leaving. Burglars seemed to have targeted trucks because all the small car parked in the same area were untouched. It seems likely to be a regular occurrence. There are No parking lot cameras and a lot of posted signs warning of burglaries. The hotel itself was not a fantastic worthy stay. Musky halls and an elevator that needs maintenance. Our room was not clean, we had to be moved to another room. However, the front desk was very nice and understanding. Unfortunately, we would not stay again.

Need more parking.
Easy check in. The hotel was clean. We had dirty towels in our closet and the parking was packed with UHauls that took up 5-6 spaces.

2/10 Poor

My stay was very uncomfortable. I reserved a King size bed and they gave me a full size bed. Front desk told me 3 parties over book so they just make sure you have somewhere to stay. Half a roll of toilet paper no extras. And it says smoke free facility yet as I was trying to sleep I can smell cigarette throughout the room.
