This is it. This is the single worst hotel experience I have ever had in my entire life. I am so thankful each day that I do not have to stay there again. Upon walking in the room the entire room smelled. There was a poop in the toilet. Literally. No one bothered to flush. The housekeeper, did that person... More

For the love of god no one and I mean NO ONE stay here. Bleach stains on the floor, blood stains on the AC unit, blood stains in the bathroom, smelly, bad TV, bad service, cigarette burns. It felt like I was literally sleeping in Afgahnistan.

We stayed one night. I will NEVER stay there again! I'd rather sleep in my car even on a winter night. 2 toilet plungers in the bathroom. My sheets were not changed from prior guest. There was used bar soap in the bathroom. This was the most disgusting place to stay. We checked in at 2 am and left at... More

I booked the room for 3 nights. No room service the first day. I requested room service the second day and when I got in from work the room had been done, however, the first two hours there I was bit up with at least 20 bites. I was given another room, but by that time it was too late.... More

Continental breakfast consisted of pastries and apple juice (one per room as I was abruptly told by the manager) Fixtures in the room was really basic, lights did not work properly. Manager did not go out of his way to make you feel welcomed but was quite happy to sit there all day with the TV on really loud. Use... More

-- Continental breakfast was an unadvertised bonus. Essentially breakfast choices are coffee, juice, and a pastry -- pastry is cellophane wrapped 300 calories, no nutrition -- only juice was apple and the machine delivered just water -- coffee is poor -- On the other hand since the breakfast is not advertised, I don't have much right to complain. -- Sunday...

The room I stayed in had several broken light fixtures and extremely uncomfortable beds. I didn't sleep well at all while I was there. I didn't feel like I got my money's worth, which is not saying a lot! Next time, I'll spend the extra money to stay in a nicer place.
