This has to be, undoubtedly, the nastiest hotel I've ever stayed in. Hustled by a panhandler upon arrival, lobby smelled like a scummy pawn shop, the room looked like a crime scene. I slept atop a "bath towel" (aka rag) the whole night. Room smelled musty and like smoke. Bathroom had a leaky toilet. We cancelled our second night's reservation... More

Most staff members were rude, some were nice. The hotel had bugs roaches, spiders, bed bugs, and stink bugs. Some rooms didn't have a clock. Sometimes there was no one at the desk. Breakfast could have been better. Place is falling apart and should be shutdown. A health inspector should visit the place. It is filthy and disappointing. Pipe burst... More

This is the worse hotel I have ever seen. We booked online. When we got there and saw the staff and visitors we were afraid for our life. Very shady!!! We got back in the car, locked the doors, and got out of there as fast as we could.

Stay in your car! Horrible---Drug infested, bug infested, dirty! Would rather not sleep than stay at this dump. Cops were there on several occasions and we heard a lot of noise from several rooms with strange people coming in and out all night. They would have to pay me to come to this place again and a lot of money... More

There was no one at the counter when I checked in and the bell to ring was far out of reach so I had to yell "Hello?" The hallways were filthy and the walls disgusting.. There were bugs (I think cockroaches) in my room!! I can't believe this place is in business. It surely would not pass a health inspection!

This is a cheap stay hotel and the hotel, location, and staff reflect that. The sheets, furniture, lamps, and hallways were stained. I ended up sleeping on top of a blanket I brought. The hotel smelled bad and the hallway had crushed cigarettes on the floor. I tracked by myself with multiple bags and no one at the front desk... More

My husband and I had a canceled flight over Christmas. By the time we needed a hotel, it was ten o’clock at night—our new flight time was the next day at 7AM. We called the Airport Plaza Hotel because we were temporarily seduced by the cheap rates—every other hotel in the area was $89, $99 or $119 per night. The... More

So this place has interior rooms which are clean. My partner and I got to see two rooms because we had booked a king online and were initially given room keys for two doubles. The amenities are minimal. Tissues box but no tissues. One of two bars of soft was shattered and they happily gave us a second one. The... More
