"The rooms were not bad a budget hotels go. They need to be deep cleaned as the carpet was really badly stained in our room. The bed spread was also stained. The location was not the best as people offered my 70 year old father who is disabled, and had a stroke to buy weed in the hallway. They were going door to door in the middle of the night. When we were packing the car some homeless guys were asking for money. Had to tell them to step off. Tried to sell us a weed from the side of the road. They had literally pick it up and it was a weed you would pull from the garden.The pool was right next to a bar in the lobby. Never tried it but it looked fairly nice. But they has a glass wall right into lobby. Had the worst food at the perkins.I would stay again for the price."

4.5/5 Robroys

"We were pretty happy with the hotel, desk staff was courteous and helpful, the indoor pool was great although we didn't have kids to use it. It has a huge 2 story slide, was of good size and several kids were enjoying it. It had a rec area in the pool area (it was a large gym like room with the pool, 2 pool tables, ping pong table, air hockey table and wet bar area for functions, lots of patio furniture, umbrellas) which we used on 2 nights playing pool and ping pong. The tables require quarters, the PP tables required giving a deposit to get paddles and ball that was returned when the equipment was returned. The room was comfortable and clean although a little dated bathroom (older loud toilet and tile grout showed its age), decent showerhead and toiletries. The TV channel lineup looked a little slim when we looked at the card but scrolling through the channels we found all the HBO channels and cable channels, too much to choose from (good thing). Location is tops - plenty of good places to eat (Perkins and a bar/lounge attached along with many choices within a mile from the parking lot; chains, sports bar, local restaurants, mall), right off the interstate, gas station/convenience store in front of the hotel. I can't comment on the breakfast offering, we didn't make it in the mornings. We stayed on the ground floor and didn't notice any excessive noise. Really can't find anything terrible to say about our stay. Quite pleased."

"I read all the reviews so of course I was concerned when I checked in. I thought a very lovely hotel. It is older sure but the pool is nice for the kids. The location is amazing. Perfect center to everything. For those that complained about the refrigerator not being plugged's true but it's not hard to plug it in. They do this for efficiency sake. &Quot;Free" coffee in the lobby. Yes but they run out quickly....why because most people fill out the huge mugs. The staff was so friendly, it was nice to have the Perkins next door. Definitely would stay again and recommend it "
