The beds were comfy, but it’s old, has a funky smell, and I went to use the hair dryer and it fell apart in my hands. It desperately needs an update and there was too much let go “because of COVID” (I viewed it as a way to cut corners). I don’t recommend this place until there is some work done…

The staff was rarely at the front desk - guests had to wait a long time after ringing the front desk for service. The room smelled sour and there were flying ants in the light fixtures and sinks. There was a sign on the front door “Requiring” all guests to wear masks, but it was not enforced. Highly disappointed in my stay there. I will not go back or recommend to a friend.

The room was dirty the curtain in the bathroom was ripped a hole in the shower only two towels and if you stay more than one night they don't come in and clean your room thumbs down

Seemed like nice staff but unfortunately the rooms were dirty. There were large stains on the bed covers, towels with brown stains, and spiders. It was relatively cheap, should be cheaper in my opinion with that level of cleanliness.

The people at the hotel front desk seemed to dislike the customers. I was chastised for trying to check out. I would not recommend for cleanliness either.

Like the pet policy, it’s cheap; room was clean; could use some maintenance/remodel; cost effective if that’s what you’re looking for, decent location, not too far off the highway, and some food around

Room was clean and quiet. Staff great. Breakfast was ok, eggs were cold, but coffee was hot

I did not use this hotel. I did not make the trip. I attempted to cancel the reservation the day before but the system failed to recognize my reservation number.

Had to use stairs. Door was very difficult to operate. Outdoor entrance would not work with keycard. Only one cup and one bath towel. Carpet was dirty. Terrible!

It was OK. The room was nice sized and was clean.

It was filthy. Do they even own a vacuum cleaner? the bathroom smelled so musty due to the shower curtain being so old and dirty.

I feel that this hotel portrays misleading online advertising by listing "airport transportation" to depict complimentary service, however, is not included. 6 weeks prior to our arrival, I contacted them asking for this service, they were not even able to offer options to us, and reminded us that if we cancel, they would keep our full payment. Airport transport costs I wa able to find were around $40 - $80. Their name is similar to another hotel near airport, "Days Inn & Suites by Wyndham", which I believe they are using to confuse customers trying to book accommodations near the airport. During our stay, the staff at front desk, as extremely difficult to understand. There are no elevators, we arrived after midnight, and given a room on 2nd floor.

You get exactly what you pay for; this is a decent quiet hotel; no frills, not the cleanest but not dirty; no bugs (that I noticed); breakfast is so so; tv halfway worked; but good spot for one night stay after concerts; quick in and out

Nothing was great. It looked horrible, walls were thin, for sucked. Poor experience overall

The staff was friendly and helpful and responded quickly to any requests. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was varied and hearty.

Property was not secure. Side door was unlocked all night. Hotel still smells like smoke even though it is non smoking.
