It has a great central location that is close to good food, shopping and transportation. The rooms are always clean with no evidence of bugs and if on the off chance you do see one, the staff is extremely efficient at getting rid of them. The staff is always friendly and will do their best to help out the customers.

Staff seemed friendly but so obvious the owners do not care to take care of this place. The place looks nothing like the photos. ( they must have been taken 20 years ago ) The lawn is mostly dead grass with weeds. Tub facets rusted and leaking, so filthy I wouldn't even shower in it. Carpets stained and smelly. Bed... More

Worst hotel experience of my life! Dirty room, blood stains, bed bugs, and things falling apart. Shady people around the building, which explains all the police activity. The rudest hotel staff, and hidden fees.

When I first got to the room I wondered why plastic on the mattress to my horror I was to find out because of their bedbug problem. Yes its inexpensive but yet way to expensive for what it is. I lifted up the phone receiver and it was so dirty! Hairs and dirt all over it. It looked like it... More

Paid for a week and couldn't wait to leave. To start off I experienced horrible customer service ever. They advertise one price, but have hidden fees that they don't tell you about. The outside was worn down with hookers and dealers soliciting you. Upon entering the room it had no carpet, blood on the shower curtain and huge blood stain... More

We wanted a nice day out to relax. When we got there, there was numerous shady looking people just standing and lurking around the hotel and in the halls. First the outside of the building is nasty to begin with, the paint is chipping away and the roof looks like it is about to fall in. The inside is much... More
