I've stayed in some real flea bag hotels, but compared to this one, they were palaces. The front desk staff is inept, to say the least. It took them over 20 minutes to get me checked into a room, which had already been reserved down to the room number. They take forever to answer the phone when calling the front desk.
The rooms are awful. It's obvious this was once a no-tel motel that's been bought and renovated. The carpets are filthy, so much so that my feet were black from the bed to the bathroom. There are dozens of tiny ants everywhere. Even after being moved to another room, they're still around. The pool is disgusting with some kind of oily film. The breakfast bar should be illegal; it smells like rotten food.
The neighborhood is terrible. The first night, there were gunshots. There have been other gunshot incidences. As I type this at 11pm, there is a car in the parking lot with the bass loud enough to rattle the phone on the bedside table. There is nothing to redeem this hotel. Except that I have no choice in the matter, I wouldn't be here. I literally fear for my life to the point I don't even leave to get food, especially not after dark.
Don't stay here. For any reason.
