    Exceptional

    Bed was comfortable and rool was clean.

    Adjoing door to the room next door. It was too easy to hear the people next door and it became somewhat annoying.

    Exceptional

    The rooms were very clean. The bedding was the new style - down comporter with a sheet under and on top of the comforter. The beds had pillow tops that were wonderful.

    We arrived at 3:30 and even though the check-in was 3pm, we were told our room was not ready. The hallways were dingy and the entrance doors no longer locked shut.

    Exceptional

    I liked how cheap it was and a very nice, comfortable environment.

    I didn't like that the back door was not locked.

    Superb

    The service was excellent - we stayed coming and going (two nights - a week apart) because we were impressed with our room and the rates and the great service, particularly by the night clerk, a young woman who just graduated from college. We liked the pool area, the proximity to restaurants and highways, and the morning coffee.

    The fan in our bathroom on our second night was loud and obnoxious. Please fix.

    The location; about ten minutes away from my brother's house. Also the diner!

    Superb

    The lady in the diner was very accommodating when I appeared and asked if they had some type of candy. I bought two of the cookies, and they were excellent.

    The front desk help were not very friendly both when I checked in and out. A smile, a welcome, and a thank you would have been appreciated.

    location, Diner, big rooms

    Adam at front desk was not hospitable at all. Whirlpool/Hot tub did not work. It took 15 minutes to get hot water to our shower- which is not acceptable.

    The online website said there was a hotub and come to find out there was not. The water in the shower was freezing cold and took at least 15 minutes to warm up. The above ceiling vent in the bathroom was half on the ceiling, off not and made a horrific sound when turned on. Finding our room was like running through a maze. One of the lamps had no lightbulb in it. Never again will we stay at this hotel!

    Superb

    It was super easy to find, and the staff was very friendly.

    The walls were paper-thin. I could hear conversations in the hallway very clearly. The room was dated, but clean.

    Exceptional

    Convenience and cleanliness of rooms.

    I wasn't able to get WIFI and desk agent could not help me. Discovered the password when I checked out at front desk. Night desk didn't know to look on key card. That was frustrating.

    Very good

    The staff members were very helpful and cheerful.

    The hotel was sort of run down and didn't smell very well. We were told that the side door would be locked - that a key would be needed for entry, however that was not the case. There were people sort of "hanging out" by the door, seemingly lounging around. It made me, as a female, feel uncomfortable.

    The front desk staff in the afternoon/evening were friendly and nice. That's the only good thing I have to say about this hotel.

    The whole place seemed dingy and worn out. The hallway and room had a kind of musty or mildew smell, as if there had been water damage that hadn't been adequately addressed. I was told that the diner downstairs would open for breakfast at 6:30, so I was counting on that. But they did not open at 6:30 so I had to hurry to find another breakfast place in time to catch my plane. The guy on the desk early in the morning was barely responsive when I tried to communicate with him...like some kind of dimwit. This was not a good experience and I will never stay there again.

    Good location and the people were very nice.

    We were not able to cool our room down; it was fairly humid. We would've liked to have continental breakfast.

    Guest rating

    The desk staff was very friendly. The attached diner served great food.

    The carpets were filthy. The walls throughout needed a paint job. The location is so great that with remodeling it could be a first rate hotel. From the outside you can see the drapes falling apart.
