    really good area with better quality hotels available staff had nasty attitude on thanksgiving,the hotel looked like crackhead paradise run run run nasty disgusting old everything NEEDS TO BE TORN DOWN

  • Family with children

    Location was good. Staff and hotel are awful!!!

    Upon arrival, I signed the bill with the amount. On checkout, they did not want to give me a copy of the bill. I insisted and they had charged my room a different rate from the negotiated rate at arrival. I was charged an extra $65.00 and they could not explain why.

  • Family with children

    Absolutely nothing. We left and went some where else. The place was disgusting. Dirty and was a pimp house. We put chairs in front of the doors at night for safety. Towels were paper thin and yellowing. Definitly will never stay at another Best value Inn

  • 4.2

    The staff was friendly and as helpful as they could be with what they had to work with. The room was as clean as it could be but the furniture needs to be replaced. AC worked.

    The chair had a broken leg. When I moved it away from the wall it fell over, the TV didn't work at all but maintenance replaced it.The lamp was plugged in but didn't have a light bulb nnd neither did the front desk. Lots of road noise.

  • 5.0

    we had to get a refund

    the room had bugs on the wall and restroom

  • 2.8

    The bed was hard the covers had a smell to them and so did the room.

    The room had roaches the remote to the tv didnt work it looked like a run down motel.

  • 3.8

    Everything was old style, but the worst was that the bed was like a rock, so hard we did not sleep comfortable at all.

  • 3.2

    There was high traffic in the room next to us possibly a drug dealer there and his girlfriend kept banging on the door all night no one did anything about it there were someone else's used Hal still in the bathroom no soap no clean towels no slip mat and the sheets have blood on them no I will not stay there again not until they clean up the place

    There could have been a coffee machine in the room clean sheets clean towels Anna cleaning room

  • 2.8

    The full refund they gave us w/o stay.

    Advertised with a swimming pool, but the pool has obviously—trash piled at the bottom of the dry pool—not been in use in, what looked like, years. The bathroom had black mold on the ceiling, and when I stated this fact to the manager she tried to tell me it wasn't black mold—I know, very much, what black mold looks like from dealing with it in my past. Rooms were musty, and cops arrived when we checked in to clear out some homeless people that failed to pay their bill (the mangier was holding their possessions in ransom).

  • 4.6

    Had to switch rooms 4 times to get our room key to work and then she finally used the master key to do that. We sat outside for 50 min w our luggage, when she pushed so hard w the master key on the 3rd door she kicked over our luggage. Well, my 1 month old cell phone was in it and it became shattered. Thru all this she kept disappearing. Now I keep calling. All they tell me is they will give me 20% off my next stay and she got fired for multiple complaints and she was supposed to pay for my phone. Hmmmm...something's wrong w that picture!!

  • 2.8

  • 3.8

    It smelled like cigarettes and the bathroom smelled like urine. There was people living in the rooms, including washing dishes in the parking lot. It was the most disgusting place I have ever stayed at. Would not suggest this place to my worse enemy.

  • 2.8

    Nothing !!!

    It's such a dirty place, the pillows had a small insects who bite me all night long. I got terrible allergy !! I'm thinking to suit this dirty place.
