“All publicity is good publicity...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011 via mobile

I've never stayed here... But i was just watching the news here and there was a stabbing that took place in the doorway of one of the rooms. If you stay here try to avoid room 116... The cigar burns and rose smell might be accompanied by blood stains.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2009

I had the misfortune to stay here due to a last minute trip on Memorial Day weekend. There was NO PLACE to stay on a holiday weekend and this was the only place available.
Where do I begin? I had to have a maintenance man open the door for me which he did by swiftly kicking the bottom of the door. The room smelled like cigarettes and roses so bad I about gagged.
There were burn holes in my bedspread and sheets, the carpeting was a few inches short of reaching the walls and ragged on the edges, there was no hot water in the sink, the walls were paper thin, I heard EVERYTHING my neighbors did all night, and I paid 80 dollars a night.
I'd sleep in my rental car behind McDonalds before I stayed here again.
