Positives: The room was better than what I expected for the price. The bed was very comfortable, the room had it's own ac unit and very clean. The room was also spacious enough, I fit my large dog crate with plenty of space left. Really with they AC going you couldn't really hear any banging or anything, even if there was any. The room was nice enough that it didn't matter what the area outside looked like. You have a Popeyes in walking Distance and a White Castle 2 minuets down the road using the service road (I wouldn't walk it late, thought you could ). What your paying and what you could go to a Motel 6 or something similar, I'd go here again.
Negatives: A few small things and they're trivial at best, other than one thing and that can depend on the person. None of the things I list I brought up with the staff, because it's small and didn't make or break the stay. The TV guide placard is wrong, so is what the TV says the channel is. It can say Disney on the TV but it's Fox news (not exactly that), the guide could say HBO but it's MSNBC. The parking lot is a little rough and the area around This Inn and the one beside it has lots of litter. There're homeless people in the area, but honestly they didn't bother me nor dampen my stay. The biggest thing was I couldn't connect to the WIFI, I don't think the signal is strong enough. I just mobile hot spotted it.
Best place to stay for...

Positives: The room was ok.
Negatives: The staff wouldn’t return my $100 deposit because they said the room smelled like smoke even though i never smoked before in my life and the room already smelled like it before i got there. Will not be returning ever again and will let everyone know about the staff until i see improvements.
Bad Staff

Positives: It was Quite.

Positives: Absolutely nothing.
Negatives: Absolutely horrific experience. It’s disgusting, there are drugs and syringes all over the parking lot, addicts are passed out in the hallways and the management has a scam going on with your deposit. They keep everyone’s deposits based off of how clean you kept your room, not based off of the damages if there were any. I had a toddler with me so it’s safe to say my room was not in the best order throughout my stay but it was not a serious mess at all!!! My stay ended in a screaminf match with the incredibly rude female manager. If you can afford to stay anywhere else, DO IT. There is not a single good thing to be said about this location. I’m in disbelief that it’s even still open to the public.
