    Location

  • 6.4

    The room was nice and adequate for our stay.

    We arrived early and our room was not ready. So we went to the fairgrounds to set up our booth at the Turkey/Deer Show. When we arrived back at the hotel at 6:30 pm we went straight to our room #409. To our surprise, when we opened the door, there was someones luggage in the room. The desk manager (Amanda) was extremely apologetic and took care of getting another room, while we waited in the hallway. All ended up okay....but what an experience...

  • 7.8

    The hotel staff was helpful getting me the correct room next day

    I reserved for double bed. When I checkled in it was a King bed. I was not happy.

  • 5.0

    Bed and pillows were nice.

    Room was dirty. There was also a significant amount of black mold in the bathroom. The noise of the upstairs guests that went on until about 2am. We called and made complaints about as we had to get sleep to get up early for a cattle show. The last call to complain my husband was told it was the owners brother. I could care less who it was it was rude and disrespectful.

  • 2.8

    This is a very unsafe neighborhood. Our car was one of five vandalized in the parking lot. The management response was complacent and uncaring. I would strongly recommend choosing elsewhere. After the car's window was smashed to gain entry and items were stolen the manager assured us he would tape and cardboard the window. We discovered it had not been done the next morning. No apologies offered whatsoever.

  • 8.8

    ALL of the staff was wonderful, welcoming and helpful.

  • 10.0

    everything...

    Nice staff

    Room smelled like a dirty ash tray. Tried spraying to cover Oder but the cigarette smell was awful. And had some random $10 charge to debit card?

  • 9.6
