Positives: The lights worked is all is all I can say. Oh and there wasn't that many roaches.
Negatives: The Roches that came out in the middle of the night. My son woke up to use the bathroom and noticed some crawling on the floor and as he came out he seen them on the walls and the curtain. Needless to say he became very paronide and we slept with the light one the rest of the night.
It's a roach motel

Positives: The location of the hotel was great.
Negatives: I arrived late , wasn't too worried because I had paid that morning, got my room key and went to my room only to find the door propped open with a chair and room wasn't clean, so I had to walk back down to front desk because the phone number on the room key goes to a voice mail. The Manger immediately gave a different room, arrived in new room only to find that TV remote didn't have batteries, so I once again had to contact management. Too many people just hanging out on the property. My first night there was a lady loading her car with her belongings this went on throughout the night. Early in the morning I was awaken by the police at the next room. The next day was the same thing, two ladies were just sitting around by the stairs smoking and others sitting on the stairs. I returned around 8pm to find the lady from the priovious day had returned with friends and had the rest of her belongings scattered all across the lower level, she was parked in the handicapped parking space without a placard, I'm a 100% disabled Veteran and needed the space, I had to park a distance from my room. There were also people just hanging out in the parking lot, so I felt very uncomfortable. Later that night around 1am I was again awaken by was sounded like someone walking back and forth by my door, when I looked out I noticed there was a lady just hanging out smoking and talking on her phone, later two ladies decided that it was ok to sit out on the stairs playing music and talking right outside the rooms, I can understand not being able to sleep but management should make sure that individuals use the hotel lobby verses hanging out , around 4am I finally decided to leave because I couldn't get any sleep. Overall this was a very uncomfortable stay. In all fairness I will add that the management is very responsive to issues, my key stopped working and without having to ask the manager who was working on an issue noticed and went to the office and got me a new one.

Positives: The clean and affordable room. The staff(Meeghan, Jennifer, Shannon and Chris) are kind and courteous. I have been staying at this location off and on for 3 years. The price has went up a bit but so has the upgrades in the property. It is STILL THE BEST VALUE around.
Negatives: What's not to like? Fast internet, coffee in the morning, good price, clean and sweet smelling room, lots of hot water, great staff and location!!
Best price and value in...

Negatives: Hotel clerk gave us a key to room that was occupied by two men. Next room given to us had a very strong odor of pinesol. Hair all over the floor. Drug addicts sitting around by the office. Will never stay there again.

Jacot young couple April 11, 2022
Positives: honestly the staff was nice and the location that’s about it
Negatives: smelled like cigarettes and was supposed to be a non smoking room. blankets had cigarettes burns on them and there was a hole in the wall in the restroom. There was loud noise in the morning someone banging on the doors. Also the cops showed up in the morning for that situation.

Positives: When we want to get away together this is where we meet as a family. We are at home.
Negatives: I didn't like the noise in the morning. People leaving earlier than yourself in the morning made a lot of noise and no consideration
