I chose this hotel because it did not get a room at the hotel that I ever stay before. Since it's only for overnight transit and I must check out in the early morning so I chose this hotel with good expectations like what I have experience in the other hotel nearby. When we checked in the receptionist and her... More

I asked to be changed to a non-smoking room, and was informed that I would have to upgrade to a more expensive room. Management would... More

This has got to be one of the worst hotels we've ever stayed in, in a prettty awful city. The 2 rooms we had were both run down, the bathroom plumbing was all rusted, the curtains & some of the blanket s had cigarette burns in them, some of the sheets had stains on them, the airconditioner (split system on...
