According to past reviews I read, when I stayed I would be subjected to hookers running the halls, Section 8 residents smoking and arguing in the halls, surly staff, and generally, taking my lifew into my hands.
True - the hotel is old and in serious need of rehabilitation (which seems to be taking place, albeit slowly). Yes, the pool is still closed and doesn't look like it will open again in this century.
But, for the cost, it will not that bad. The rooms were clean, well air-conditioned, TV worked, bathroom fully stocked with towels, soap and shampoo, and the carpet cleaned.
Also, staff was walking the property checking around, making sure security doors were locked, and cleaning up the litter.
Also, staff was aware of the past problems and reviews, and honestly agreed with past complaints. The new owners cleaned out the hotel of those Section 8 residents, refused new state funding to house said people and is now spending money in fixing-up the hotel.
This hotel is not for long-term stays, but for a 1 or 2 nights, you go do worse.
