Man with an chip on his shoulder...
Very satisfied with my room. I have no complaints about the room. But the man working I believe the manager has a big chip on his shoulder and not at professional or friendly person. Charged me a 150 dollar deposit which wasn't listed anywhere when i booked the room. Also the pool and breakfast were closed and not available. Also not listed anywhere when i booked the room

Decent hotel for the price
Room was decent for the price. Could have used a little more cleaning as there was some dirt on the walls and mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. Was awaken at 5:30am one morning by a barking dog inside along with 2 people yelling at each other. That didn't make for a pleasant morning. Location was great since we were in town for business at the fairgrounds.

Not A Bad Place.....
As you enter, the sign says "masks required". Many times, both people behind the desk and those entering were without them. Seriously. The breakfast, meh. Give me a $5 per day break on my bill and you can keep the burritos in the fridge and the granola bars. Rooms weren't bad at all. Mattresses were firm, but not uncomfortable. A bit musty, but it was a warm day and the AC struggled to keep up. All in all, it was a good place to stay while we were at the State Fair, but I would not go out of my way to stay there otherwise.

The gentleman that worked the desk during the day was beyond rude. Every day!! There was no room service. If you wanted towels you had to remember to throw them in the hallway and don't forget and have to talk to the front desk. Big issue to get you clean towels. A little niceness goes a long way.
