    If you must…

    The managers were very friendly, but the place is seriously run down and in a part of town with lots of boarded up businesses. The area has seen better days for sure. The room was ok, but smelled like smoke and was supposed to have been a nonsmoking room. Only stay if you must.

    Did not match as advertised

    BringFido app stated free breakfast- there was NO breakfast. Pet relief area was nonexistent. Our baby had to go on gravel in a 18-wheeler truck parking area. Walls were thin so those above us walked a lot and kept us awake and spooked our dog. But room was clean and staff was friendly. Price was reasonable but higher than advertised. Only one type room was available for pet friendly and it was the highest priced.
