"This hotel needs an overhaul."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Very disappointed Mattress was terrible, pillows old and stained. Housekeeping was minimal pulled up the bed sheets and that's it. Caulking in shower was stained, may have been mold. Overall appearance of room and hotel is tired and worn out. For $250 per night, I expected much, much better accommodations. We will not be returning.

"Cleaniness and comfort."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My husband and I had stayed here in 2018 and were impressed with the friendly assistance of the front desk person as well as the cleanliness and comfort of our room, so that is why we chose Sleep Inn for this trip. The bed was very comfortable also.

Overall Score3.0/ 5
(I could not get into my room on the night of 1/30/19 because there was no staff member at the front desk for close to two hours. I called and finally got someone who told me to just wait for someone was coming to activate my room so I could go in. My two little daughters had to sit at the reception for that time. I have called the manager(Bruce Cribbs 3523166311)twice and left a message with my number but never received a return call. I need a refund for the second night I spent in that hotel. Waiting for your response.Thanks.
