Getaway

I will say that when we arrived they did let us check in early. When arriving to our room the smell was not plesant. We went and purchased some lysol and room deoderizer after that it was ok. We stayed for a week and only had house keeping one day. We had to go ask and get our own clean towels. Over all the place needs some " updating" and better housekeeping. Good location for the area. The pool was nice but shared with other hotels crowded!

GO STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!

Very disappointed overall. I've stayed in less expensive hotels that were superior to this place in every way. Waited over an hour just to check in and then they gave us a room someone was already staying in. No ice in the ONE ice machine they had located on the fifth floor. The key always malfunctioned.

Very disappointed

We chose this hotel for the price and location, but my disappointment could not have been bigger. The bathroom did not work, they did not clean our room every day, and when we complained the housekeeping did not come at all anymore until we left! Would not recommend to anyone!

Don't do it! There are better for similar money.

Needs a good power wash and that is in the rooms. Not one coke machine had a soda. No working ice machine. Breakfast was in a super dirty standard room and consisted of two open boxes of cheap sugary cereal or tons of super cheap wonder bread white bread for toasting. We paid $60 and it was worth about $35.00 tops. When we pull into parking lot the was three police cars with their lights on arresting three black women and a young black man. We should have called for a refund right then, but we just got in from JFK and had no luggage thanks to Airline. They are not investing in their business, so why should you. Sleeping in the car at a rest stop would be equally safe. The phone is next to the toilet.

Weekend getaway

Even though the elevator was broken on the 2nd day and we we're staying on the third floor, the price was right for what was expected.

Nothing but a dump even for the price

This hotel charged $59 per month. I get to the room and as I open the door a smell comes out. I proceed inside to find no power to the lights. I turn on the tv and no cable. Just a black and white snowy screen. I turn to look for the phone to call the front desk. No phone in the room. I have to step out side to call the front desk because there is no reception. The front desk tells me that they will send some one over immediately. About 30 minutes goes by. No one shows up. I get to the front desk and tell them that I am not staying here because of the horrible conditions. They stated this is fine but they were NOT refunding any fees after being on property for only 30 minutes under horrible conditions. You would be crazy to stay at this property. Nothing but a dive in my opinion.
