“Not so CLEAN!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

When I first came in the room, I noticed toothpaste still in the bathroom sink. And then I saw ROACHES in the shower and in the microwave in my room. The room looked as if no one came in to clean prior to myself. The owner/management was a little rude. When I requested a change of towles, it seemed I was inconvenienced them.

Room Tip: There seems to be some drug activity and prostitution problem while I stayed there. Families beware...

I stop by every so often when I'm in town for business. It's a great place to stay. The rooms are clean and the price is great. The staff is also very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone in Riverside.

First off those who gave this hotel an excellant rating must have stayed at a different hotel or stayed at far worse hotels than this. This hotel is anything but excellent. I had a bad feeling upon checking in the staff is extremely rude and unprofessional. That was a big red flag I ignored. But what sent me out the door was the condition of the room. It smelled like mold, some electrical wiring was sticking out, the furniture is old and chipped a few had tagging in it. It's just deplorable. Do not ever consider staying here. Upon checking out (within an hour the smell was that bad) I told the receptionist why I was leaving so soon and he just shrugged it off and just said people cooked in there so that's where the smell came from.


It's just unbelievable! The lack of courtesy and professionalism. For godsake you are in the hospitality industry, your main goal is to make your guests feel comfortable and safe and to treat them with dignity and respect. Have some common sense, you are running a business.

I am so sorry that your stay was not comfortable. It is so important that our guests bring these type of concerns to my attention. Sometimes in our kitchennette suites people stay for months. Dear guest I am not sure what room you stayed in or on what day. Please be kind enough to give me a call so we can figure out exactly what happened.
thanks

Receptionist not friendly, helpful, or willing to extend common courtesies offered at many nearby hotels. No chance I'll be back.
