This place needs shut down it is FILTHY!!!! The lobby was absolutely gross and when we went to the room and saw it was just as disgusting we immediately booked another hotel downtown. The whole place was pretty sketchy and wouldn't be a place I would want to be in after dark.

I wrote a review on this but it did not show up. So I am resubmitting one. The hotel is more like a motel. The website they have on it is very misleading. It's deceiving. It's broken down, located in the getto. No continental breakfast or coffee. No micro or frig in rooms. Rooms are filthy, smelly. Did not use... More

Maid service wasnt great as well as the front desk people. The pool was clear however filled with bugs from the grass being so high. I knew it wasnt gonna be the... More

This place was absolutely disgusting. There was some kind of sticky-looking substance on the curtains, and used tissues on the floor. The location was scary, in fact almost inaccessible, due to it being near a truck scale. If we hadn't already been charged for the room, and arrived too late to find a different hotel, we would not have stayed.... More

I checked in and found the desk clerk to be so dirty and her odor overtook the entire lobby. I went to my room and found cob webs in the corners and a BIG bug on the ceiling. I asked for a refund but was refused. I left anyway and went to the hotel 1/4 mile South by McDonald's. They... More

The hotel entrance can be difficult to access because of the many semi-trucks that wait for the light. The entire facility needs to be remodeled badly. The restuarant was ok and convienient. The staff is somewhat friendly. Bring your own iron, the one or two for the entire hotel is usually taken. If you are coming for the Circle City... More
