We were here for 1 night only, that was a blessing. The hotel or apartments as they really are, are very run down, the only item that has been upgraded is the flat panel TV in the living room. Our room was at the back of the complex, on the first floor, the apartment is 2 rooms with 1 in... More

This place screamed "sketchy". From the second I walked in the room, it reeked of stale cigarette smoke. It looked like the dumpiest apartment I'd ever stayed in as a college grad, and smelled worse. I walked over to the bed, and the bed cover had a hole. The foam cover (?!) underneath the bed cover had a smaller hole,... More

As a single woman, I felt very unsafe. There were men constantly walking around the property that didn't appear to be guests of the hotel. I spoke two some cops who were there as private security and they reinforced my perception of the property. Aside from security issues, my room didn't have soap and I didn't have internet access for... More

This hotel has identity crisis. It is an apartment that functions as a hotel as well as apartment complex (extended stay). It is gloomy, very rundown externally and the interior is very dated and needs upgrade. The lobby looks dark and not very inviting. The building for hotel guest is within walking distance with the "short-term" residence (extended stay). I... More

My boyfriend and I were booked here by his company after some major truck problems. I must say we were blown away not only by the service of the staff (they kept the laundry facilities open late so we could do laundry) but also by the size of the room. Our room was literally a one bedroom apartment with a... More
