2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This place was cheap, and it felt that way... The lobby smelled of smoke, but our room surprisingly did not. It did however have a dingy feel because it was old, a bit dark, and rundown. The property is undergoing renovations - our room had new paint, but also had multiple splatters which showed that it was not being done in a quality manner. The hinges on the bathroom door were rusty. The TV worked, but the quality was poor with a lot of static. The wi-fi worked which was a plus. The continental breakfast was fine, but consisted mainly of bread products (toast, English muffins, danishes, muffins.) There was a lot of loitering in the halls and lobby, but everyone left us alone. We were on the first floor, and our upstairs neighbors were extremely loud - after an hour (9:45pm - 10:45pm) of this, I let the night clerk know of the issue and she took care of it. The grounds for the property were trashy and in need of better care. Overall our stay was fine for one night, but I would probably pay a little more for a better property in the future.
