I found this place on the Internet, saw a decent room for a great price. When I got here, I opened the door and noticed the roaches and rats were staring at me like I was disturbing them. I went the the main office and asked if there was another room. The man behind the desk told me that was... More

Don't even think about coming here. Save yourself the bug bites, the disgust, the feeling of terror, spend a few more bucks for a better place. We were able to check in easily, and didn't get too much attitude from the manager. We stayed in room 21. The door locks only from the outside which was weird and the one... More

This place was a bad choice in a bad area. The room lacked decent air conditioning and had but two threadbare towels, a tv without remote and no hand cloths,glasses, coffee, or any other amenity. I had paid for a room with two queen beds but was given one. W ith only one. The clerk would have argued the matter... More

On top of that we were on a limited budget and so of course scoured the internet for cheap deals on rooms. Well of course anything directly in the city was easily going to cost... More

Please, don't ever go there in your life. It's a desaster and super dirty ! We changed three times of room because the bed had hairs on it. Plus, the bathroom didn't look like it has been cleaned. We went to buy an other blanket at Target because I know I wouldn't be able to sleep on the others one.... More
