"PLUGGED TOILET"

"We got checked in really fast and went to right to our room. My hubby used the bathroom and we had to call the front desk because it wouldn't flush. They sent a maintenance man up with a plunger...when we answered the door he said, "here!" And left. The room was hot and stuffy. The comforter on the bed was torn and the bathroom floor was cracked and dirty. The beds were also very saggy and uncomfortable. The only really good thing was...it was close to everywhere we went and it was easy to get back on the road home!"

"We got stuck in a smoking room, and we were never even asked if that is what we wanted. I can't belive they still let people smoke in hotel rooms still. We wanted to change rooms but they had no extra rooms. The bathrooms and hallways were a little shabby as well. Not impressed..."

"The cost of staying at this hotel is the reason we chose it. It is affordable and we really didn't spend any length of time in the hotel- we just slept there. For the room rate it was a decent hotel."

"Hotel itself was good but there is no room service from the attached restaurant. Food was not very good, you phone down and order it, they call when it is ready so by the time you have picked it up and returned to your room it is cold. Resyaurant staff not very friendly."
