This the most worst place ever and needs to be shut down by the health department. Dirty, possibly bug infested rooms. Heaters that barely work. The coldest possible shower without it being actual ice

I cant believe we have hotels like this in 21st century USA. 1. No hot water. Took shower in cold water. Called reception, they said they don’t care. 2. Heating wasn’t working. Moved me to another room. 3. Bugs crawling up my hand in the middle of night. 4. Loud music playing by elevator all night. Couldn’t sleep all night.... More

The hotel is a disgrace. It's dirty, dark and full of police activity. Apparently, police look for suspect in this hotel. My colleague was kick out of the room at 1:30 am because his name wasn't in the reservation. I made the reservation and they only asked for my name. Last night somebody open our door in the middle of... More

The next day, still wasn't working and walked down with our luggage. Pails in the lobby to catch water dripping from... More
