Do not be mislead by the pictures posted by the hotel, they are very outdated, my guess is almost 20 years old and do not represent the hotels current conditions which in my own opinion are down right disgusting.
When you first arrive, there is no parking for hotel guest, passes are required to park at the meters over night. Check in is typical, staff is friendly however everything else is down hill from there. The elevator is out of service with a sign that has cob webs on it. I later did some research and would guesstimate that it has been out over 2 years, probably because it can not pass state inspection laws..... So you need to lug all your suit cases up three flights of stairs. When walking down the hallway it looks like something from Texas Chain Saw Massacre, weird stains on the carpet , lead paint peeling, and the ceiling falling apart. We had a room with two twin beds which was very small, size is not the issue, however cleanliness is not in the hotels vocabulary.
The room has a refrigerator that idles like an 18 wheel semi which I eventually just unplugged so I didn't have to hear it.
It also has a window mounted A/C unit which barely blows out any cool air, making the room feel like a sauna.
You then enter the bathroom which is falling apart with holes in the wall, stains and hair on the floor.
My girlfriend and I were unable to get a refund so rather than leave at that point and waste our money we choose to ride it out.
We decided to take a shower with our flip flops on , however we were soon to discover there is no hot running water....
We eventually tried to get some rest in the nasty bed , which we woke up with mysterious bug bites in the morning.
I woke up like a zombie just listening to all the noise the paper thin walls would not stop. You hear every door open, then slam shut making it near impossible to get any rest whatsoever.
Day 2 was just as bad, house keeping was at our front door when we left for breakfast , however when we returned the room was just in the condition we had left it in. No fresh towels, no made bed, no cleaning was done, What kind of service is it that this place provides? Absolutely nothing.
If you want to ruin your vacation by all means stay here, that or sleep at a bus stop.
The only thing positive to say is it created a lasting memory which we captured by taking a picture at the front, Titled.
