We had to book the room while we were on the road. We had a 50 $$off card from BW and figured we'd use it here. We were on our way home from a concert and were just too tired to drive anymore so we called the 800 number on the back of the giftcard. They had one room left. We took it. We paid 139 (With the coupon price off) to stay in a crappy bed. The screen door was patched with bandaids. 3 of them. The lamps had no lightbulbs. The lampshades themselves were disgusting. It looked like someone sprayed dust, dirt on them and then just sprayed it off with a hose. It was a smoking room. I figured okay, I'm a smoker, that'll do. Well, the room smelled like urine/smoke and wet dog.
The only good thing was the view from the 4th floor. But there was no balcony. If there was, I probably would've jumped just to get some fresh air.
