Wish I would have read reviews before booking this hotel.
Positive elements - 1) Staff very nice, personable, helpful; 2) Cheap rate; 3) small fridge and microwave in room worked well
Negative elements - 1) Room not clean - We went and bought our own cleaning supplies to clean the scum out of the shower, the sink, and the phone. Hair strands on pillows, burn hole and red (blood?) stain on sheets. Windows are filthy - as if there is no pride in keeping the place clean. 2) Also, the lobby stinks. Not sure what it is from. 3) No coffee maker, no hair dryer. This room is pretty bare bones. 4) Hotel stairs/sidewalks and building not receiving needed maintenance or cleaning; 5) A/C doesn't work very well - it's manageable but the room didn't cool to our satisfaction.
If you need a very cheap room and you don't mind cleaning it yourself before use, and perhaps bring your own sheets, this could be at least a roof over your head. We paid $48/night in August, 2013 and we only stayed one of the 2 nights that I had already paid for because I didn't want to stay any longer. Also, due to the 11.75% hotel tax, the cheap room was still $112 for 2 nights. I'd rather spend more and have a clean room, however.
Hope this helps.
