“An etching stench”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

I know you get what your pay for. But this time, it totally wasn't worth it and I regret not spending an extra $50 for something nicer. Pro: Airport shuttle for super connivence. Con: My god. The smell. I knew this place was rated below average but I figured I only needed a bed to crash in after a redeye flight. I wasn't looking for anything fancy. The stench was overpowering. Smoke, mold, sewer?? Whatever the mixture, I couldn't get use to it and I had to breathe out of my nose so I wouldn't puke and my stuff just reeked after only spending hours in that room. Who cares about the dingy bathroom, sketchy bedding, and blood?? stained carpet. I was too busy to write my review immediately after my trip but the smelly experience is etched in my mind forever.

Room Tip: I walked around the halls to see if just my hallway was the stinky one. Nope. All the same.

Room was dirty, dusty & musty. Bed felt like it was 100's of years old. Good location and the shuttle is on time
