Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Do not stay here. Book elsewhere."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I arrived but had to leave immediately because the hotel was not fit to stay in. I attempted to check in and there was not a front desk attendant. I had to buzz for the attendant which took approximately 25 minutes.The hotel was infested with roaches. The bathroom did not have any towels or any toiletries. The halls wreaked of smoke and a foul odor. The facility seemed unsafe. The parking lot was dark with limited visibility to the street. The hotel did not have an active front desk attendant for check out or check in. I had to call the next morning from another hotel. I paid for a two night stay ,but I could not stay an hour because of was the roaches crawling from the stove top, night stand,and trash can.I would not recommend staying in this hotel nor plan to book at this facility.

"Horror Story!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Well, let me tell you about our experience at this dump! FIRST. We arrived at about 11:40 pm. After using the phone in the tiny lobby to call someone to the reception desk it took about 20 MINUTES for a clerk to arrive. SECOND. The room was the tiniest I have ever seen. We reserved a room with a queen size bed and got a double instead. THIRD. There were NO lamps on either night stand. FOURTH. There was no complimentary shampoo in the shower. FIFTH. The bed creaked every time we moved. SIXTH. The A/C was loud and not very efficient. SEVENTH. The sink in the bathroom was tarnished. EIGHT. The fridge was ghetto. NINTH. We DID NOT get what we paid for. Which was way expensive. Morale of the story: DO NOT STAY HERE. And, oh yeah. MANAGEMENT PLEASE AVOID WRITING A "SORRY ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE" NOTE. NOTHING YOU CAN DO OR SAY CAN MAKE UP FOR OUR EXPERIENCE AT YOUR DUMP!

"Horrible"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Do Not Book HERE! ABSOLUTELY Horrible! I called the night before my reservation and the staff confirmed my room and confirmed that I had a room with two double beds. I drive two hours and get there and they tell me they are overbooked. They can only offer me two rooms (on different floors) each with a single bed. They did not care. Not one little bit. Run away from here as fast as you can.
