I don't know where I should start: I booked this Hotel through Expedia. my mistake don't look at previews reviews. The receptionist was not friendly from the beginning push me to wait until 3:00 pm to check in and I arrived 30 minutes before, and asking all the time if I was sure to keep the reservation because after my...

We were robbed. iPad, sunglasses, iPhone, wallet, and money were all missing from my room. The rooms are fine, not fancy but probably worth the price. The issue is security at this hotel. There is none. Your single push doornob is what protects you direct from the street. It obviously was not enough for us. For all reading this, please... More

Seriously, I was wondering why the rooms weren't ready by 3pm when, clearly, my group was the ONLY one checking in that day. We had already prepaid on Hotwire or I'd have left after seeing the courtyard. ... so from the beginning, we roll up about 920am and I attempt to go to the lobby to see if I can... More

The same guy is the receptionist, the cleanner and the... More

It was very suspicious that the hotel requested the payment as soon as we arrived, especially saying "are you sure, because after you won't be refund". The first glance at the room before payment was quick and it seems worth the low price, so we paid. Unfortunately, after getting the only (very simple) key (not secured) and settling the luggages...

I wasn't expecting much since I know that we paid about 240 for the room for the weekend. I read the reviews and was worried that it was bad. But the person who chose it said no, it's under new management and in the middle of being cleaned up, so I was willing to give it a a shot. I... More

There are roaches all over the place, do not turn of the light because when you turn them on army of roaches are running around trying to hide. The window blinds were broken or missing, so they...

So where do I start. We get there Thursday morning around 5 am with no issues. I go down stairs to put my food in their front office fridge bc the one in our private room didn't work. When I get down stairs the heavy set lady tells me I owe her more money after she said checking in wasn't... More

Although the staff were quite professional considering the barrage of complaints they received, I couldn't help but noticed the embrassment that showed on their face each time I walked into the reservation office...... Each time I walked into my room (110) it made me sick to my stomach. My final night did not come quick enough, so instead of sleeping,... More
