It is an old Hotel that they want to fix up. The office was newly painted, but it ended there. You got to your room by going behind the hotel. It was old and Very dirty. There was trash left from years before on the ground ground everywhere. Inside smelt really bad. You had to get up these stairs do the second floor that were very dirty. Got to the room, unlocked the door and thought( oh my god I will not be able to sleep here and couldn’t). The pillows must have been run over with a steam roller they were so flat. The beds were barely made, with old sheets. The comforter and blanket was disgusting. The floors had not been vacuumed for quite awhile. The bathroom was even worse. The towels were thin and very old. I would recommend it over sleeping in a dump. The lady at the office was very nice. I give it a.5 rating.

Sleep in your car before wasting one dime here !

We arrived to see a worker wearing fuzzy slippers, then entering the room we find cracked floor tiles , terrible condition bathroom and a toilet that was filthy on the outside. Only thing that was new in the room was the television. Mismatched out of date furniture, coffee pot was filthy, shower rod falling off wall, holes in ceiling, safe was operable, poor maintained at all levels! Was sooooo not worth the 100 dollars and I should have slept in my car ! Morning breakfast consisted of 6 bagels on a tray . Exterior is poorly maintained... reviews for this hotel states that it was renovating in 2017... Well it’s not done!!

There were dead bugs in the bathroom upon arrival. Then we found several more flying around the room throughout the night and next morning. Couches and furniture in piles outside the entry door from outside. The hallway smelled. Good sized room tho so I hope the owner spruces it up a notch or 5.
