6/10 Good

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The surrounding area is rough. The property needs updating. I didn’t feel completely safe there; the side entrance door was open ( the mat held it open) and the inside locking knob is missing. The microwave didn’t work and there was a stale smell to the room.

Breakfast no good never had coffee the 3 days I stayed also I would ask theme to clean room they never did will once they did clean the restroom but she looked upset

8/10 Very good

The only negative about the property is that the carpet in the halls looked worn and threadbare. The carpet in the room, however, did not have that worn look; therefore, I assumed the room may have received a renovation in the last few years.

4/10 Fair

Not what they tell you it is!
The rating was 8.0 very good, was not a 6.5! Someone isn't telling the truth, old hotel remodeled. Clean but don't like ratings that aren't accurate. They locked us out of perimeter door by 9am, had to walk around the hotel to front door after loading car. Very slow check in! Had groups of men sitting and drinking outside perimeter doors. Not a nice place!
