I spent one night there with a friend. It took them two extra hours to clean our room because they said it was "very messy". We finally got into the room and there was fresh putty on the walls covering holes (behind door and bed posts) and a brown stain on the carpet that had clearly just been scrubbed. The bathroom is small but fairly clean. Biggest problem was the guy that followed us to our room (we are two 21y/o girls) and helped himself inside. He couldn't speak a lick of english and literally tried to rape us. We had a knife for protection, which he tried to steal and hide in the drawer. Tried to offer us money, asking "how much". We got him to leave the room around 2am and we called the front desk to complain and express that we feared for our lives. We were told they would look into it. As far as we know, no action was taken. They stranger continued knocking on our door repeatedly until 5am.
Wifi was spotty at best, couldn't even check the bus schedule. Doors were slamming all night. People were quite loud. Homeless man slept in the lobby. Water didn't exceed "luke warm".
Overall, NOT recommended!!
