I do want to say the people behind the desk were very polite, but it ends there. The hallway smelled like dog pee. The rooms were not vacuum, The bathroom had hair on the floor and in the tub..YUCK! The towels and bed sheets had holes, but the smelled like bleach, so hopefully that meant they were clean. The lamps... More

This hotel is a shell of its former self. It is outdated, and a tad creepy. BUT, I knew what I was getting into when I reserved the room. I was looking for cheap accommodations close to Bowdoin Park--and I found just that. The staff--one person--was helpful, although I had trouble understanding him. He was attentive and competent. Everything in... More

The first thing I noticed was that my room smelled like urine. Unable to stand the smell, I went to look for the cause of the smell. I found the smell in the sheets, and I assumed that the sheets would be changed the next day, so I slept in them anyway. There was rubber on the bottom of the... More

Three stars is not accurate for this rat trap, the first room had blown out light bulbs, the window was stuck open, and we couldn't close it, the ceiling was open and exposed to the wiring, there was no trash can in the room or the bathroom. Awful experience, I want my money back!

wow... the only good thing (and it wasn't great) was the breakfast. The first room they put me in the bathroom mirror was falling off the wall, the bed was visibly uneven and when you moved the saggy mattress there was some wooden planks on top of the box spring to try to even it out. We switched on the... More

I wish I would have saw this before I booked through Hotwire. Do not go here! So dirty my skin crawled. I demanded a refund and left I was so disgusted. Fortunately I was able to get a room at a different hotel. I would give this place a -10. I think this place should be condemned.

ZERO stars!! Our rooms were filthy, garbage in the refrigerator in one of the rooms, 'questionable' stains on the carpets on either side of both beds, curtains were stained and torn, broken draw string and holes in the drapes, yellow stained bath linens, dirty bath linens left hanging in the bathroom, black 'mold like' stains around tub and on the...

I would give this place zero stars if I could. A terrible experience all around. First of all, upon check in, we were told that we couldn't have 4 adults in a room with 2 queen beds (never heard that one before). It was going to be 30 dollars extra per head. We were told it was "in the policy".... More

Check in was already weird. I think this hotel does a lot of "short-term" business (parties and sex). No elevator, if you can believe that. Toilet and bathroom hadn't been cleaned thoroughly. No heat lamp in bathroom. Heater in room ave off an awful smelll when turned on. Towels were thin--clean but without that fresh bleach smell. Forget about the... More

We visited this hotel last year in October it was under reconstruction then, it was o.k. Not great but o.k. This years visit was nothing less than disgusting. It doesn't seem like they are doing anything more as far as reconstructing or remodelling or even cleaning. Our room was a nightmare, vomit on the floor,bed and chair. The plumbing didn't... More
