“Poor choice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We stayed here for three nights and primarily choose this hotel because of its location to the civic center. It was very close but that is about the only good thing I can say about the hotel. They advertised that it was recently renovated but we must not have gotten one of those rooms because the walls were filthy, the bathroom was moldy and grungy, and the carpet had more holes and stains then the parking lot outside. We had a bottom floor room and heard every single step the person above us took. The room faced the street which is very busy all night long and makes it very hard to sleep. I killed two spiders and two roaches over our three night stay. The shower ran out of hot water after 6 minutes so if you like a longer hot shower or have multiple guests, you will be out of luck. The light in the bathroom made so much noise, we eventually just started using the bathroom in the dark so we would not have to hear it anymore. It did have a refrigerator that worked so that is another positive but it is a struggle to come up with any others. The bed was fairly comfortable but due to the noise from the road, it was just too hard to sleep. I realize the rooms are cheap and I usually do not expect a high quality for the budget rooms, but there still has to be a minimally acceptable standard and this hotel did not meet it. I would not recommend this hotel unless there is no other choice and you just do not feel like sleeping in your car...

Room Tip: Choose a room that faces away from the main road due to noise.

I requested a wake up call for 5am and never received it. The carpet was filthy, and faucet handles were hard to turn and made a loud noise.

Being close to the Civic Center is the only reason we stayed here. The bathroom was dirty. But the biggest problem was the room smelled like smoke. It was supposed to be a "nonsmoking" room. We couldn't change rooms because they were full. So we were stuck. They did send maintenance up with air freshener and it helped a little.
