As my ATM card was unable to work at the airport, I could not pay for a taxi to my originally booked accommodation. Looking at my guidebook, the Econo Inn was recommended as a budget option and I could book it via the bank of phones in the airport. They arranged for the shuttle to pick me up, and it... More

This is not a hotel for travelers (wink). Holes in the wall, dirty everything, and such a creepy place it was hard to sleep. It surprises me that they book vacation travelers, since it seemed like a residence hotel that would not pass an inspection for a homeless shelter. You are truly better off sleeping in the park with the... More

Find your way to room 111 as there will a plentiful abundance of bed bugs to feast on your body. SICK! Pay the extra money and stay somewhere else. Don't bother trying to give them a heads up about the infestation as they will deny it. It is not worth the cost at the hospital!

This is a horrible place! Dirty, no disgusting! Really really shady characters running around. Yes the price sounds good, but you would be better off sleeping on a park bench with bears, and it would be a whole lot cleaner! Not worth risking safety...

They were literally crawling all over the sheets. Denied it was bugs, refused any sort of refund. Never ever stay here, not worth... More

First off after I paid and got to my room the place goes from mediocre cleaned to disgusting and smells like urine. Then when I was ready to go to bed I checked the sheets and found a bug but since it was small I didn't make a big deal out of it. When I laid down I saw another... More
