"Reservation was for a suite 189.00. got to my room was disapointed with the "suite". upon checking out told the front desk how poor the room was. turns out they put me in a regular room so only charged me 159.00, this was still way too much money for how old, dirty and unattractive the entire hotel was. I would only stay here again if there is nothing else available and too cold to sleep in my pickup truck."
