The staff was new and not trained. I was given wrong information and they wanted to charge me for their error. 1st room was soooo hot that I'm sure Satin himself lived there. They made me stay saying that it would cool if I tucked the curtain, 3hours later it was still smoldering because the ac was only blowing low... More

Myself and a friend traveled to canton for the weekend, when we arrived at our room it was still dirty. There were several black hairs in the shower, black hairs in the bed, and beer bottles laying on the ground outside of our door. When we called up to the front desk to ask for the wifi password I was... More

I booked a room this past week, as other properties in the area were either far more expensive, or weren't available all three nights, or both. I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. A pleasant greeting at the front desk helped my optimism. And it turns out, the complaints in the other reviews were largely not my experience.... More

The pictures on the web site are misleading. They advertise having blow dryers and irons, which is not true. The rest room was not cleaned properly. There was used soap left in the tub from previous occupants. Door was loud and squeaky. The hall way and room smelt like cigarettes and cat pee. It was suppose to be a smoke... More

Room 326. Upon walking in, the room looked OK. After getting all my luggage inside, I needed to take a shower... Ha! Not happening. The shower head was quite low at about 5 foot 6 inches from the bottom of the tub. After that wonderful bit of knowledge, I looked down and found a very large dead Roach. Gross. After... More
