Stayed for extended period of time Approx 4 months - Here are the good points and bad points (Pro/Con List):
GOOD POINTS (PRO)
1. CHEAP: Cheap place to stay for extended period. If you don't have a place to stay and need something cheap this is the place to go.
BAD POINTS (CON)
1. TRASH: Trash cans are near my door and had very bad smell many times.
2. AIR CONDITIONER: Smells like Mold
3. PARKING: My vehicle was broken into (Back window broken out) because I had to park on the side that has no lighting when parking lot was full. To-date, the hotel still has not increased any security measures 3+ months later.
4. MAID SERVICE: a) Maid would make bed with new sheets sometimes. b) Cleaning job is very rushed with just the main stuff worked on (clean sink, towlet, shower, trash). c)
I don't think they ever vacuumed the place in almost 4 months. d) Personal Towel taken by maids and not returned. e) Shower Curtain had very bad smell like mold - needed to be changed
5. SUICIDE: Man committed Suicide (shot himself) and hotel didn't know until next day. Window was broken by Fire Department and not fixed for more than 1 month.
6. PEOPLE STAYING IN ROOMS NEAR: a) Had man saying next door and would go outside to throw-up in bushes outside room after drinking all day and night. b) Had a couple with kids staying next door and fought for 3 days until they finally left for San Antonio (how do I know they went to San Antonio, you would have to be deaf not to know).
7. INTERNET: You have to pay for it, but I would not call it high speed. They have the router so far from the rooms that your signal is very poor - a good day you had maybe 20 MBPS, but usually much less. It was only a one time fee and very cheap, but I could not qualify this for a PRO since speed/signal was so poor).
8. TV: The TV was very old and remote would not turn the TV on/off. Very limited choice of channels. If you like CNN you'll love it, if you want FOX NEWS forget it.
