This hotel was booked for me for a conference I attended in the area.
Our cab driver was very specific that this was not a safe town to walk around in, especially alone. That was a bit unnerving. I did not encounter any problems though.
As for the hotel, the lobby was nice. I went to the workout "center", which is a very small room with an elliptical, treadmill, bike and home-gym-like lifting station. TV with remote was a plus. For a hotel of this size, the center could have been bigger, but was enough for me.
The breakfast was pretty good. I had an omelet; I didn't pay attention to prices as my breakfast was paid for with a voucher. I did notice that the chair I sat in was stained as was the menu. This gives me the impression of a dirty restaurant, but the china and silverware were clean.
My room was anything but spectacular, unfortunately. It was very large and that was nice. The room was stuffy and had a slight odor. The air conditioner did not help at all, and just added to the stench in the room. The bed was uncomfortable, and I heard every word spoken by the people next door.
The room obviously received a quick cleaning, but I definitely noticed the stained carpet, scuffed doors, and the hair in my coffee pot. The ironing board was disgusting with the pad half hanging off and stained. The iron was old but worked better than mine at home!
The staff was very pleasant and courteous. They were the best thing about this hotel.
I would not stay here again, nor would I recommend this hotel to anyone. However, if you are looking for a cheap one night hotel, this may be for you. I think the rate was around $74. Can't beat the price, really.
I hope this review helps.
