Inexpensive Option

I’ve stayed at this hotel a few times because it’s inexpensive and close to where I want to be. It’s not fancy, but it’s clean, quiet and the staff are great. They even remembered me from my last stay over a year ago. If you’re not interested in frills and lots of amenities, then this might suit your needs well.

The Place was Awfully. The Rug in the Room was Filthy Dirty. Made my feet black. Stains on the sheets and Blankets. Hole's in the Mattress. No Clean Towels. The WORST Experience Ever. Wish i could get Some of are Money Back.

This place is disgusting don't stay here! Room was dirty! There was nasty brown stains (maybe blood), on the pillows I don't want to know what is was. The bathroom was filthy, I don't think it had ever been cleaned, I asked for extra towels staff said to come back later he didn't have time to go get them even though he was clearly doing nothing sitting there on his phone.
