My original room that I booked was given away. I was "upgraded" to a room with a jacuzzi to compensate. However, this room 291 did not exist; my daughter and I spent 20 min and 3 phone calls to the front desk to find this non-existant room...which led to us walking back and being given a room where someone else...

Room and bathroom were clean, but furnishings were quite worn down. Hotel was converted from a smoking to non-smoking (probably in last few years), so it still has a distinct stench of smoke in the hallways and rooms. Breakfast was poorly managed with guests having to call the reception on more than one occasion in a 15 min period for... More

This hotel is in a horrible neighborhood to begin with, but then you throw in the rude staff and the garbage littering the parking lot and even the cheap rates are not worth staying here! We came within a hair of checking out and going to stay someplace else!! The rooms were very out dated, but they were very clean... More

Hotel is horrible. Not cleaned the greatest. Outlets in room don't work and the shower can't stay hot for more than 5 mins. We got a phone call to our room at 11pm accusing us of smoking weed...not exactly a happy camper when a) my 2 year old was asleep when the 1960 telephone rang and b) we were accused... More

You couldn't pay me to stay at this hotel for longer than I did. I was traveling with my family and we had booked this hotel based on the pictures. Not only was this hotel incredibly far out of our way, it smelled HORRIBLE and our room was not much better. There was lingering cigarette smoke smell in the hall... More
