I was going to stay 4 night but I cancel after the first night. This place is infested with bugs. I can't understand why the health department haven't shut it down. Sheets are old and carpet was wet and stinky and very dirty. The only Good I can say is that they face a new manager and she been there... More

Ok, the only thing I can say nice is that it was relatively cheap. The room was dirty; maid service was pretty much non-existant; there were ants and various other creatures. There were bed bugs in two other rooms that were rented. The dining area was dirty and the counters covered in food. The staf is either completely rude or... More

Let's get this out of the way: this is NOT A HILTON. If you want to pay upward of $250 per night, go ahead, it is your money. If you want a decent and quiet place to sleep and aren't concerned with a bunch of features that you won't use anyway within 2 miles of all the good stuff in... More

At check-in, we first had to wait about 10 minutes until someone finally came to the front desk. Once we were checked in, we went up to our room, which honestly felt like going back to a college dorm. The floors were dirty, the sheets on the bed didn't seem very clean, and the TV wouldn't work beside a few... More
