The price for a room here was a little more than I expected for an entire month but it works. I got a large room with a comfortable king size bed, a mini fridge, microwave, a very large dresser, a table and chair, and a comfortable chair to sit in. This room is nothing fancy, and it may need a...

From the moist carpets, to the 1960s old pillows, disgusting bathrooms and not to mention the seedy bar next door, with its patrons retiring to their rooms right next to yours, fighting and screaming for hours on end.. this is...

Where do I begin? With the strip club next door? Or the windows without screens that wouldn't close? Or the bugs or the dirt? Need I say more?
