When we first arrived we were a bit leary. The parking lot and grounds were not well kept and there were 2 cars in the parking lot at 6:20 pm and at least one of those had to be an employee. Checked in, got to our room and checked it out and all was well. We went and grabbed some dinner and upon return saw a few more cars. The lady at the front desk was very nice. By 8:30 am the breakfast was not great but granted it had been sitting as there were very few customers there to eat. Our room was clean and as it should be, we were just taken aback by the shape of the parking lot and the lack of customers.
Watch out if you stay here, I do not smoke, yet they charged me $250 for smoking. When I try to argue, the manager says she will get back to me, then doesn't. I had to keep following up and they sent me photos with no date saying it was me. Now I am out more than the cost of the original hotel stay. Avoid the hassle and don't stay here!!!
