My boyfriend and I checked in and stayed less than an hour. The halls reeked of smoke. Suspicious characters and vehicles were lurking around and outside the hotel. Once inside, the check-in desk attendants seemed like they didn't know what end was up. Once we got up to our floor, we heard strange noises from several rooms, and a dog... More

We arrived too late and were only staying a short time since we had to be up early in the morning. Bed was dirty, the room smelled, wouldn't even touch the fridge, bathroom... More
