I have a complaint about the Nations Inn. This place needs to be inspected. We stayed there one (out of 4) nights and wouldn’t go back. They will not refund our money because the manager said I threatened him with letting the word out about how nasty and problems we had in one night. Not a good place to stay at all. Please reinspect this property as it had cobwebs, holes in the wall, an inch or so of dirt in the bathroom baseboards and the fire detector was torn off. I’m so sorry to post this but something needs to be done
