Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Inconvenient Experience"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
It was great stay until my husband stepped out of bed and cut his toe from a metal rod sticking out from the bed. I was not planning on a trip to the hospital and the Hotel didn't even have a first aid kit.

"Avoid"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Rude front desk staff. Sheets terrible. Towels old and thin. Plain old place. Carpet wet from leaks out of wall. Cleaning down only two days then you're on your own?
