Positives: n/a
Negatives: my room was empty 207!! within 2 hours of checking and settling in I was bitten horribly all over my body by bed bugs!!! I immediately took pics of my bites, packed my things, showed the office staff, asked for a refund and left. horrible. I was tired from driving all day and ended up needing to leave in the middle of the night. now I have bites all over my body that itch and burn. I should have been compensated more then just a refund. terrible!!

Another Day
Dawn young couple May 13, 2022
Negatives: There was an open used bar of soap on the counter, the toilet over flowed, the shower was very small and you could hear evey noise from the highway. I called to let them know we were running later than expected (I originally said between 10-11) they told me they had no reservation. If you aren't there by 7 pm they cancel your reservation. They did fix it but it was just the point I told them we would be arriving late to begin with.
Not a great experience
