We saw the website and thought it would be a nice place to stay by the pictures they show. The downstairs front lobby looked decent so walking in we felt it would be ok. When we arrived to the 7th floor there was an odor and in front of our room was some type of thermostat hanging from the wall. Had a sceevy feel about it. When we entered the room there was a funky odor. The bathroom was filthy and underneath the sink in the hallway is a hole in the wall. I was nervous of bugs or rats getting through. The beds were small and smelled bad. After a minute of laying down in the bed we were itching very bad. It felt like fleas were jumping on me from under the covers.My back was covered in bites and I was unable to sleep because I was itching so bad. The other 2 people i was with experienced the same. Thank God we only stayed for one night because I would have never spent a second one. I would advise they condemn this building and they should be ashamed to show thos pictures on the website. It is very misleading.i felt dirty in that bed and was being bit by something.
