First of all, the hotel was located in a very very bad neighbourhood. Dingy hotel that really is in need of renovations. The room has a very bad musky moldy smell to them that became really bothersome when you try to sleep. Let's not forget to mention how dirty the room was when we first entered it. The maid service did a poor job at cleaning the room from whoever stayed the night before. The first thing we noticed when we got into the room was the bad smell, and then the [--] stain on top of the bed comforter. That really disgusted me and my boyfriend as we would be sleeping in this particular bed tonight. We then discovered there was still hairs in the bed sheets, obviously they sheets were not changed. We then came upon the washroom that had mold and mildew building up in the shower stall, particularly in the corners of the shower walls, the facets and shower head. After we were in shock of discovering this mess of a room we immediately call down to the front desk to complain about the cleanliness of the room. They sent up the maid who then fixed up the room for us. When we got back we saw the shower had been scrubbed down but the comforter with the [--] stain was still there, the sheets were changed as well. I called down to the front desk to inform them of the tainted comforter still hasn't been replaced. They apologized once again and sent the lady back up to replace it. I then went to take a shower and the shower head wasn't working properly. I was getting fed up and didn't want to call the front desk once again so I just sucked it up and had a semi cold shower since the hot water wasn't that strong and the water pressure horrible.
Me & my BF went out to Manhattan for a a night out. The hotel is conveniently located near PATH which is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. This takes you to Manhattan in about 20 minutes.
We got back to the hotel at about 2:30am to have our whole floor stink of cigarette smoke. The smell came into our room and this is supposed to be a non-smoking room and I presume all the rooms on our floor were non-smoking as well.
We then fall asleep only to be disturbingly awaken at about 3:30am by so much noise from two people screaming & swearing at each other and banging things loudly on our floor. They wouldn't shut the hell up!!! It was sooo LOUD & Disturbing. We called down to the front desk to complain, I guess other hotel patrons complained as well since they told us on the phone they already knew of the situation. But it was obvious they still didn't do anything to stop the situation. These two went at it for a good hour until someone from the front desk came up to the floor and threatened to call the police & kick them out of the hotel if they didn't shut up. We finally got more peace and quiet at about 4:30-4:45. We finally fell back asleep and then we get waken up at about 6am by one of the hotels cleaning staff vacuuming at such an early time. I was sooooo [--]!!!! We got about 2-3 hours of sleep max. Is this really supposed to be comfort? like the hotel claims it is.
The complimentary breakfast was alright, nothing special.
The next night we ran into the problem of some little pests. Found two cockroaches in our washroom.
Liked: Close to PATH, that's about it. The complimentary breakfast was decent as well
Disliked: Dried up [--] stain on bed comforter, Shady area hotel is located in, cockroaches, smoke, crazy low life patrons at this hotel, dirtiness of hotel room, bad smell in the room, shower stall not cleaned well, hot water problems, beds hard like a rock, the prostitutes we saw in the area
You'll definitely save money by staying at this hotel instead of spending a fortune in Manhattan but at what price will you trade in the low cost dingy ramada limited for something a bit more expensive? Make your decision wisely!!
