The rooms were wayyy nicer than expected!
I was on the back side as a single traveler with my dog. They told me the hotel was totally booked up, but there were only 3 cars in the lot I was in. I didn't feel safe taking my dog out. The towels had wholes in them. There was no blow dryer, but I did not shower because the bath did not feel clean.
price and room was comfortable
The staff were very nice, and for the most part everything was clean, just clearly aged, and repairs were needed. The bed was relatively comfortable, and the a/c unit worked well, as I like my rooms very cold at night.
Some basic repairs and updating was certainly needed. There were various places all around the room where there had been damage previously and either hadn't been repaired at all, or had been but only marginally. The sheets were clean, but had multiple holes (looked like possibly burn holes) in them. There was a hole in the bathroom door that had only been partially patched. The metal security bar on the door had been broken off, which was actually my biggest issue - they always feel like a measure of safety that only I have control over, so it did linger in the back of my mind most of the night.
Bedbugs and spiders. Got bit on my leg by one of the two while lying in bed. No refrigerator in the room and random people hanging around the facility. Checked in and checked out in the same day!
