We stayed one night here while on our way back from NYC. The hotel is in a good location its easy to find and close enough to stores, places to eat, and the interstate. For the price we were not sure what to expect so I am pleased to say we were very happy with our stay. The room we stayed in was a very spacious King room with standard amenities like a mini fridge, microwave, ironing board and iron. My only gripe/not gripe is that the room is so spacious it needs a bigger tv :) My only true gripe may be the breakfast area just because of lack of seating. There are just a few tables and not alot of seats. Now to be fair this is more of a continental breakfast w/the addition of a waffle maker so not really a sit down hot breakfast. If you are looking for a hotel with a big hot breakfast this is not your hotel. If you need a very clean, inexpensive place for a night or two then this hotel will meet all of your basic needs.

Arrived for a Wednesday to Saturday stay. The room was clean and nice with two queen beds. The two weak spots in the stay was limited towels and washcloths, and no hot breakfast. The breakfast was poor, no breakfast meats were available.

Location is great! My room however was a very different story! There were holes in the bedspread. The linen is worn. The room itself is very dated except for the wood laminate flooring which needed a cleaning. Every time I got in the bed I brought all kinds of grit with me! The room had a definite bad odor. Thankfully I had some room spray with me and that helped somewhat. There was a large area of damage on the outside of the bathroom door that looked like someone hit it with their fist. The toilet seat was broken so you had to be very careful or it fell off! The toilet seat was also dirty when I checked in. Thank goodness for Lysol wipes! The shower curtain was mildewed and the tub dirty. I actually put a towel down on the tub floor to stand on to shower. TV reception was terrible! I won't be staying here again and regretfully cannot recommend it.

Let me begin by saying "Holy Smokes!!!" Check-in was hassle free and smooth. When I got the room on the 4th floor we had to take the elevator similar to tower of terror from Disney. When we stepped into our room it's smelled like cigarettes, but since we were so tired we didn't want to bother with the hassle of changing rooms we kept it. We checked the beds and was free from bed bugs but not from mysterious hairs!! The bathroom had a musical shower head after a minute of showering and an extractor that also had a squeaking noise as you turned it on but then it went away. We lucky had Disinfecting wipes to clean everything we were going to touch. When we checked the nightstand we found a bible and behind it there was a mound of cigarette butts along with a empty box of cigarettes!!!! I could not believe what I just saw!!! I was living the real "Hotel Hell" as seen on tv!!! The funny thing was that there was a sign that said "No smoking" but some lowlife just didn't care! We quickly closed it up and never opened the drawer again. The brown sheets were dirty so I didn't wrap myself in them. I said if this the room how is the breakfast that they serve the guest? So for that matter I didn't eat breakfast at that funhouse! The only good thing we're the channels on tv and the comfy bed and pillows. In conclusion I will never stay at this place again!! Then again you get for what you pay for! Not recommend if your looking for a clean place to stay!!
