"Not an inviting area. The hotel was dated, unclean, and in a state of disrepair. It took 3 tries to get an acceptable room. There were old mattresses and trash around the dumpster. On a positive note, the staff was accommodating and customer service-oriented. Breakfast food distribution was well-managed. Take a pass on this one.2020-08-26"

"The hotel was under construction. The carpet in our room was dirty, and the sofa bed was broken. We had to ask for bedding for it after putting luggage under the edge to prop it up. There was mold on the bathroom walls. The pool was being remodeled, so the 1st floor smelled like concrete dust, and that was where breakfast was served. A horrible experience.2017-01-18"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
