Our reservations was already messed up at another hotel & we could not get our money back for 48hrs because I prepaid(I will never do that again). So this was the closes, cheapest hotel( loosely said) we could find in short notice because we were only staying overnight. I should have known something was wrong when they gave us an... More

I cant believe we have hotels like this in 21st century USA. 1. No hot water. Took shower in cold water. Called reception, they said they don’t care. 2. Heating wasn’t working. Moved me to another room. 3. Bugs crawling up my hand in the middle of night. 4. Loud music playing by elevator all night. Couldn’t sleep all night.... More

The hotel is a disgrace. It's dirty, dark and full of police activity. Apparently, police look for suspect in this hotel. My colleague was kick out of the room at 1:30 am because his name wasn't in the reservation. I made the reservation and they only asked for my name. Last night somebody open our door in the middle of... More

If a building inspector saw this place, he would probably condemn it. The only "working" elevator, when working, the lobby door only opened up halfway, later, it elevator just quit working at all, walked up to the 4th floor. The next day, still wasn't working and walked down with our luggage. Pails in the lobby to catch water dripping from... More

Didn't need a key to stay in my room...the locks didn't work. When I first came in I wanted to check the weather, however the television seemed to have some sort of dried white thick liquid squirted all over the screen and on the area in front of it and the remote was very sticky. So I opened the curtains... More

This hotel is dated. It is no frills. But they are really trying. The staff is nice. The furniture in our room was all brand new. The walls were freshly painted. The mattresses were new. The sheets were clean, the pillows were new, the comforters were clean and new, it smelled nice in the room, the carpet had been recently... More
