It is not very poor, But Not very good as well. we can manage there if we dont find any other accomodations. Very small room( 1 Bed Queen size room), Very low ceiling, No extra space even to walk within the room. Not really worth for the amount given.

The room was horrible. A/C did not cool and looked like the front was melted,carpet was wet and super musty, Curtain above A/C was tucked under open window so it would not cover A/C, Bathroom was pure filthy disgusting horror. There was mold in shower and the light above was painted with green paint so darken so you would not... More

When I made my reservations I had requested a non-smoking room and they apparently did not have any so gave me a smoking room. I noticed on my bill that it said smoking so I instantly called, the clerk reassured me that I would not have any problems what so ever. When I entered the room there was an overpowering... More

I am sorry this guest was not happy with her accommodations. She booked a smoking room, as that is all that was available and was informed of this when she made the reservation. The comforter should have been changed prior to her arrival, however, as soon as she brought this to our attention, it was immediately changed. She checked out... More

It's the kind of place you want to sleep fully dressed. There were lots of bugs and debris on the sheets, and they were worn and looked dirty. The walls had dirt on them - so much so I didn't want unplug anything in to charge my cell phone. Beds were very old and stiff. My expectations were not high... More

When arriving at this hotel with my mother, fiancé and myself we were delighted to see how we'll the outside looked. When we got into the room we saw that the refrigerator had not been cleaned, there were cob webs and bugs on the floor. However what really was disturbing was the shower. Inside the shower there was a lot... More

The price was good, though I had to book online for best rate Clean room with friendly service, but by time I got back in the afternoon my non smoking room smelled of smoke. New carpet was good. The air conditioner was very cold (i liked this) but was not constant and loud- needs to be upgraded. Enough towels but... More

From the outside, the Boulevard Inn has a somewhat charming appearance. The room we were given had holes in the bathroom door (a new door is on order, we were told), a broken faucet handle, poor draining in shower, cigarette burns in hotel linen, moth holes in curtains, falling window blinds that we had to rig to keep up, an...

This is a very dirty hotel. We stayed here for one night and the room was the most dirty room I have ever seen in a hotel in USA. Bathroom was cringe worthy too and we did not take a bath there. Insects were on the floor. The bed sheets looked dirty and old.

I stayed here in Jan of 2012. I booked a jacuzzi suite and was a little worried based on some other reviews. They were completely false. The staff was friendly and accomodating. My room was very clean, the jacuzzi tub was big and clean. I could tell the room had new carpeting and had been updated. The bathroom is a... More
