This is, without a doubt, the worst hotel that I have ever stayed at. The room was filthy and falling apart (note the photo). There is no sound separation to the adjoining unit, and I was up all night as my ‘neighbor’ started his party at 3AM. The elevator did not work, nor did the management seem optimistic that it...

I stayed for a night with a few friends. It's not the best hotel I've stayed at, but it has the necessities. The room was pretty run down and smelled like smoke, even though it was a non smoking room. The staff was pretty nice. There was nothing that I loved about this hotel. They offer a complimentary breakfast, but... More

If you have business in this city and if your party includes someone fluent in Chinese things will be acceptable by mainland China two star standards. Our room was clean, no bugs, tv worked, refrigerator worked, bottles of water every day along with apples or banana. Seems like very safe off street parking. Yes it is aged and yes carpets... More

This Asian owned hotel desperately needs a COMPLETE re-do! The elevator & fax machine were not working. I requested, non-smoking rm., got a filthy smoking rm. with no toilet paper, multi-stained carpet, two bath towels. Finally got a non smoking rm., the carpet was stained, the blinds were broken & missing a few blinds, the air cond. was old &... More

This hotel is the worst place ever! I stayed at this hotel with a friend and when checking in room was only in my friends name. The next morning I went to lobby to get coffee which they didn't provide and realized I left key in room. The guy at front desk yelled at me saying he can only give... More

This was the worst experience I've ever had. At check in I got one room when they realize we were a gay couple we got "upgraded" from the 4th floor king bed to the second floor with two beds. Of course I went down to complain and guess what we got the original room on the 4th floor. The next... More

My question was why would anyone want to stay at this hotel. Location? There's nothing around. Price? It's not really that cheap for the quality of the stay. Service? There was none. So, you decide. We stayed here for one night because we had to attend a meeting til late in the area. It was quite empty the night we... More

Property was allowed to deacay under previous ownership and now need rescue. The only things it has going for it is location, cheap room prices and secure parking although I do not think it is large enought if hotel is full. Guest seem to smoke although it is a non-smoking room, or they smoke in the hallways, elevator need fixing,... More
