My partner and I were booked into here last September on a work trip and have been meaning to leave a review, sorry, I mean warning, to other travelers ever since.
This is in fact, as other reviews say, a halfway house for the homeless. There are prostitutes outside (and dare I say inside) as well as drug addicts.
On arrival we ventured warily up to our corridor which was like something from a horror movie. Just a flickering strip bulb on the ceiling in the darkness with buckets collecting drips from the corridor ceiling. On walking into our room I have never seen anything like it (and we have traveled) It was rotten, dirty, with body hair in the bed, dirty tissue by the loo, the list goes on..
Just do not stay here! We left and stayed in the hotel next door (I believe they are used to this) which was much better and they confirmed our impression that it was indeed a halfway house.
How this place is able to function and take money is beyond me. Worse place I have ever, ever seen. Truly, incredibly horrendous.
