I stayed there MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. I think the pictures on the internet were taken when they first opened back in the 50's. I could not believe I paid $168 for this UPSCALE ROACH MOTEL. The carpet was dirty, the blinds were broken and dirty, the furniture was extremely old, the shower and ceiling were moldy, and the BLANKETS HAD MYSTERY STAINS. They ran out of towels the second day. MY FRIEND AND I PLAYED AROUND CALLING IT THE ROACH MOTEL BUT THE MORNING OF CHECK OUT WE LEARNED WE WERE RIGHT. THERE WAS ROACH STARING AT US ON THE SINK. ON THE UPPER SIDE.... The hotel is in a wonderful location. In my opinion it was not worth the money. If you are just going to party and don't really care about a clean room then it's for you. If you are worried packing a few roaches I would not stay at Essex House.
