I booked this hotel after reading all the reviews, pretty much knowing that the place would be disgusting. The only reason I booked it anyway is because I needed somewhere to stay for 6 hours before my flight left at 6 AM and didn't want to pay $70+ at other hotels for such a short stay.
It is an old hotel so I expected the furniture to be in less than great condition (which it was) but I did not expect it to be quite as dirty and full of bugs. There were bugs in the tub, on the bathroom floor, and even in the hairdryer which was not a pleasant surprise! Most of them were dead and had been for a while and there was also food from past guests left in the fridge so obviously the housekeeping did a s#!tty job of cleaning. Luckily the bedding appeared clean enough.
The only thing that I was pleased about was the front desk staff. They were very friendly and helpful. After I had checked out at 4:30 AM and was waiting in the lobby for a taxi to the airport, a guest tried to bring a hooker into the hotel with him and front desk refused to let her in which was pretty funny to watch.
I would not advise booking this hotel for any reason, ever. It is still a $15 taxi ride to the hotel, so do yourself a favour and book a nicer room that has free or cheap airport shuttle. When my cab driver dropped me off at 10 PM his only warning was "don't come out of your room for anything". Like the title says, just sleep in your car or hang out at the airport.
