Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Not as described."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The sheets had stains on them and not like little stains! It was so uncomfortable to sleep in the bed not knowing what those stains were. The hotel is run down and old.

"Pretty nice hotel."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The good: hotel grounds are pretty well kept up. Room was clean and pretty spacious. Had a refrigerator. Front desk staff was polite and helpful. The not so good: Guests who woke us up at two a.m. horsing around in the hallways. Twice. (We didn't ask for front desk help just handled it ourselves.) The breakfast. Very few options pretty ho hum. We signed up for two queen beds but got one king and one double. King was great, but a double is pretty squeezy!

"Just kinda eh."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Room very dusty on shelving and tables Breakfast was not very good. Food was dry and cold. I understand there were many people there for the state cross country meet, but breakfast the previous year was very nice and organized. For the price the hotel was adequate.
