    Price.

    The room did not have adequate sound dampening.

  • 7.0

    The bed was comfy and our room was quiet.

    My heavens the room was hot...it was a hot day out and the least that could have been done was to turn the AC on...at no time did the room completely cool down!

  • 8.2

    Breakfast was awesome! loved the updates of the room. Very clean!

    Beds were a bit hard!

    Staff

  • 8.2

    The friendliness of the staff made us feel welcome.

  • 5.8

    Staff were not friendly We stayed at the inn, paid our bill then the inn tried to bill us for no show on our reservation. Will not use your establishment again.

  • 7.0

    Price

    Old property with many coats of paint, long black hairs (2) on bathroom floor, wimpy shower head--about what I expected from a $70 room.

  • 7.4

    Very clean

    Coffee pot in room leaked

  • 2.8

    I was double charged for a room and still have to be refunded the managers have been extremely rude in trying to resolve the issue! Our room was dirty but we're told nothing they could do they were completely booked! I called again today about the refund for double charge on my account and the general manager hung the phone up on me! Very poor customer service from the moment we checked in and still receiving it because of their mistake on double charging!!

  • 7.0

    nice staff the rooms were clean Easy to find my way around.

    Hated the bathroom set up.

  • 5.8

    location is good

    there was a cockroach in my bed in the covers

  • 7.0

    Good price and very clean.

    They didn't honor my price given at booking. The non smoking single queen size was not available so I was charged more for a non smoking two queen room. I didn't need two beds. I tried to get two different staff to honor my reservation price. They didn't seem to care. And didn't attempt to try to correct it.

  • 10.0

    I liked the swimming pool, the jacuzzi, the pillows were comfortable, the shower was big, the air conditioner was even nice, and the breakfast meal was pretty good too.

    I didn't like the high price, I didn't like the cigarette smell in the hallway., and the clean smell of the room seemed strong too.

  • 7.4

    The shower pressure was terrible. Took 4 times longer to take a shower.

  • 7.8

    Breakfast was timely and very good biscuits and gravy.

    Some of the arcade games were out of service, also it seemed a bit too damp in the room when first arriving. Perhaps leaving the blinds open might remedy that.
