Property condition


It was dark in the parking lot. It looked as if it had recently been broken into. There was a window broken on the first floor. The parking lot was terrible. The manager refused to give me a full refund offering to give me half of the money I paid to reserve the room. I didn’t even stay there. And CheapTickets could only speak to the manager and hope that he would change his mind. They told me I would have to wait up to 48 hrs for a resolution. I was very disappointed and I will not be using cheap tickets or that hotel again.

There was nothing we liked about this place. There was no breakfast all week.

Stayed 6 nights in Jun 2019


We arrived at the hotel, and the property was over grown and dirty. Walked in an no one, except an older gentleman that had to call for someone. We didn't sign anything to come in, he opened up the first room and said our keys will be up. The carpet in the room was damp. The mirror was cracked, and in the bathroom we had one towel, and it was stained. We noticed that the lampshade was stained and I pulled back the sheets on the one bed, and there was a stain. In the morning, the hotel stated on Expedia that it was provided a breakfast with pictures of food and waffle maker. When I went out, there were packaged mini muffins and machine brewed coffee. The advertisement on Expedia was completely misleading. Don NOT stay here,! We even parked our car in front of the window to make sure it was still there in the morning.
