“RUN! FORGET ABOUT IT! FILTHY AND FRIGHTENING!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2005

We obtained this hotel through HOTWIRE. Well, we got burned! This hotel is the WORST place our family has EVER stayed. We arrived late on a Saturday night - there was a large party on the first floor, with people roaming from room to room, smoking and loitering in the hallways. I am a former prosecuting attorney, and this reminded me of walking through a police station holding area The hallways REEKED of bug spray. Our room was filthy - the pillowcase was stained and our lack of confidence was such that we put our own dirty t-shirts over the pillows before we lay our heads down. My husband slept with his wallet against his body because he was afraid we might be robbed. The door to the outer balcony was warped to the extent it did not even seem secure and anything could have crawled in through the openings. The continental breakfast -- if anyone could have had an appetite after their night at this place - consisted of the desk clerk walking into a back room and offering some stale looking donuts. She even seemed sheepish about it. This hotel could not have been worse. I would rather sleep in my car -- at least the locks are secure.
