    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.

    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!!

    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.

    Exceptional

    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.

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

    Fabulous

    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.

    It was easy to find and close to several things. It was clean and overall a good trip!

    The staff was a little rude and not very friendly

    Breakfast

    Light in the bathroom took a while to brighten, half the arcade games were out of order, the bet was a bit hard.

    Very good

    The latter two nights were in a better room with quiet and good plumbing fixtures.

    The first night was horrible! The first room we had was immediately adjacent to the drive through lane and window at McDonalds next door. There was very little sleep as we listened to the reving of loud mufflers and throbbing amplifiers in cars making their way through the line all night long. The faucets in the tub as well as the sink were installed poorly and very hard to regulate temperature. Tub faucet was leaking continuously.
