Horrible Stay

I will never stay here again or tell anyone to stay here!!!! Tried to check in was told I couldn't check in because staff was out until 4:30 a.m. when I started to ask for management staff walked in the door said he could take care of me. Then we got to first room where bed wasn't made, bathroom had used tissue on floor full of BM and urine loaded with bugs, went down to talk to Kyle the manager of night shift he said he will change our room to remodeled room, got to new room where TV didn't work and was also dirty. When asked to speak to manager in the AM of 10/8 staff said they didn't know when she would be in, when I tried again the next few days was told the same thing

just sleep

Their is nothing special here. there was no mini frig like they said and none of the ice machines worked. the tv was basic, with almost no channels. Also very noisy out side. if you just need to sleep somewhere and plan on not being the room for anything else, its ok?

Cheap Price = Cheap "Hotel"

Wow. A valuable lesson in "You get what you pay for". I'll start with the positives: The air conditioner worked very well and did not have any issues. The pool was also decent. Now the negatives, where do I even begin? They booked me into the wrong room and once I got another room, the room looked like it had been through some seriously hard times. The paint on the wall was falling off, the couch had marks on them, the beds were very uncomfortable and the phone had stains on them. There was no cell phone service (Sprint nor Verizon worked). Upon entering the bathroom there was a huge stain on the floor that I guess is permanent. There was a piece of old gum on the bathroom counter. The water from the shower wasn't hot but barely warm. The staff seemed indifferent to problems and the other guests at the hotel were definitely of "Questionable character". The "breakfast" was the most pitiful I had ever seen (the "cafeteria" was a converted hotel room). The overpriced vending machines did not work. The overall appearance of the hotel was just decrepit. Next time, I won't be so cheap since clearly this is what I get in return.
