I arrived at midnight. Shuttle picked me up. Room was filthy. Tile floor hadn't been swept or mopped in days. Room was moldy, musty smelling. Dirty towel & shirt hanging on back of bathroom door. TV had something all over it. Stay away!!!!!!!

It's an old Howard Johnson. If it was still a HoJo things would be better (the elevator really needed maintenance, for example) but the rates a lot higher. It's still OK for now but the future depends on the upkeep. Because it was once a chain the rooms are bigger than the independently owned norm. But because of the cheap... More

First, as rooms go, it's fine. Comfortable king bed, lots of hot water, TV worked, big bedroom. That's the good part. The bad part is everything else. I believe this is also subsidized housing as well as long term housing for extremely low income folks. I was terrified my new pick up would be broken into, dismantled, or flat out... More

We selected all 1's because there was nothing lower. Tickets should be sold to tour a real crack house. For all the negativity there was an extremely friendly pit bull in the hall(no kidding, an adorable puppy). It's a shame he had to stay there.

This place was just busted TODAY for a meth lab there. (You can research it on Google for yourself). This is more of an apartment, where low-class people stay for cheap. Just across the Interstate are several nice hotels at the Valley View Mall area which is still next to the airport. There are lots of good options in the... More

This has to be, undoubtedly, the nastiest hotel I've ever stayed in. Hustled by a panhandler upon arrival, lobby smelled like a scummy pawn shop, the room looked like a crime scene. I slept atop a "bath towel" (aka rag) the whole night. Room smelled musty and like smoke. Bathroom had a leaky toilet. We cancelled our second night's reservation... More

Most staff members were rude, some were nice. The hotel had bugs roaches, spiders, bed bugs, and stink bugs. Some rooms didn't have a clock. Sometimes there was no one at the desk. Breakfast could have been better. Place is falling apart and should be shutdown. A health inspector should visit the place. It is filthy and disappointing. Pipe burst... More
