closed down without any notice!!
We prepaid online. It was our anniversary and were looking forward to a romantic night. We arrived to a hotel that was completely closed down. We had NO idea! There were no phone calls, no emails, texts...NOTHING to let us know to make other arrangements! And NO WAY to contact the hotel for a refund or other arrangements. Very disappointed!

Would NOT Recommend
My stay here was no good. If you are considering staying here do not go off the pictures provided. The location was not great the rooms were no good the floors had large dark stains the wifi did not work in a few rooms the hairdryers did not work in any of the rooms we had either. The ice machine was down on our floor. The pictures show a bar lounge area which does not exist and the landscaping was awful very unkept. As well all the pictures online show flat screen tvs which as well do not exist.

Fair2.0 / 5
A lot of bad little good.
The hotel looked very run down and almost abandoned on the outside. The breakfast was only toast and cold cereal. The walk area had holes in he ceiling that was leaking during our stay. On our floor the ice machine didn't work and the gym had an annoying beeping noise all weekend. In the room the TV is about 30 years old and made a loud high piercing ring if it was on for too long. The wifi was spotty or nonexistent could not connect the whole 3 nights I was there. At night there were a group of gentlemen outside the hotel trying to get in but the hotel manager would not let them in as if they didn't belong. One of the men outside smelled of weed. The carpet was dirty in our room and there was only one trash can in the whole room and it was not in the bathroom of all places. The AC worked perfectly to the point it was really cold. That was a plus and the bed was very soft and comfy. Other then that I probably would not return in the future. The McDonald's near by is 24hrs.

I will not stay at this hotel again....
I was impressed with the staff, they went above and beyond to try and help my stay be better,there was no bellman.Overall property is very poor,leaking water in the hallway leading to the elevator.The elevator was very rickety,only one elevator was in service, so we had to wait a long time. There was NOT ice/vending on my floor. My a/c didn't work. The repair man came immediately, and they found me another room, but it was on a different floor from where my friends were staying. The hotel claimed they were full, but the parking lot was very empty.When I got to the new room, the shower didn't drain properly, so I had above the ankle water by the time I was done. There was no fridge in the room. No drapes on the windows, only shades, so in the morning the sun woke me up. The TV was very small so it was hard to see from any angle in the room. When we returned to the room on Saturday night, we were locked out, and our keys didn't open any of the doors. We finally pounded on the front door of the lobby until someone came and let us in. I won't stay there again, even though it's in the perfect location for events that I attend once a month in that area. I would rather drive farther and pay more for a nicer place.
