2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Hi, this hotel is just ok for walking to The sovereign center.
First The rooms are small and dingy.
Then the tv was super big, and not in a good way.
The hallway and the room smelled so much like smoke that when we got home I had to launder all my clothes and fabreeze all the luggage.
The bathroom wallpaper looked like someone got into a fight with it. The shower curtain to was nailed into 3 different places.
The headboard came off the wall when we first hit the bed, and the sheets were not changed everyday. I know because they had the same stains from when we checked in. Including burn marks.
The free breakfast was mini muffins and juice. If you wanted a real breakfast you had to pay for it.
It just looked like a poorly maintained hotel. It was so sad.
What was good was the staff. Very friendly and the mattress on the bed was good.
They also don't have a good list of restaurants in the book.
And if your not used to being in the ghetto don't go out at night there. Alot of police activity.

Room Tip: I didn't see any other room but mine.
