I have been watching a skate championship, perfect place to spend with his girlfriend, close to several places, far from the center, breakfast not very good, not much choice, but I made many friends, neighborhood a little dangerous.

Neither the front desk or the rooms look nothing like the pictures on the website. There were prostitutes and pimps in the halls, the room was disgusting and our car almost got hit in a parking spot. An armed guard, suited in a bullet proof vest came to to see us out after immediate check out. We felt unsafe to... More

My family and I stayed for a week here. Drug dealers, prostitutes, people smoking pot I'm the hallways, people dealing drugs out of rooms. The manager and some other staff are nice and welcoming. Cleaning ladies are rude, one is obviously on probation due to her wear an ankle bracelet. Not a great image if they want more business. Cockroaches... More

I picked this hotel because it was being pushed hard by the Kennel Club which was having a four day dog show myself and a friend were competing in, and we needed to stay somewhere close to the fairgrounds. The neighborhood surrounding the fairgrounds is not the best area. If you need to stay close to this area for whatever... More

Took taxi to the hotel, nothing around but 2 gas stations and a subway in the one. Room had trash on the floor and was not sure if the sheets were clean. We were only staying for one night so we stayed. Dinner of course was subway as we did not have a car and there was nothing else around.

We stayed here for a night because everywhere else was booked for the weekend, it was gross! We asked for a non smoking room and facing the pool and when we got there first they couldn't even find a clean room for us to check into.( they overbooked) Then when they finally gave us keys for the room, we opened...

Took a chance on this and regretted it. I get that the surrounding area is pretty rough, but there is no excuse for dirty walkways and unprofessional staff. The manager at first tried to pretend that we had not changed our reservation from 3 days to 1 (no way we would have lasted 3 days here); she had answered the... More

Before checking in I killed a roach in the lobby, waiting in line. When I got to my room, just about everything was broken, dirty, and smelled bad (in a non-smoking room). The entire inside of the property actually had a moldy/smokey smell.There were five small roaches on the bathroom walls and a cigarette burn on the sheets. And even... More
