The last thing I want to see (other than bedbugs and filth) is flights of stairs between me and my room. Every single room has at least some stairs and most rooms require a flight up or down to get to.
Our room had a view of a concrete wall about 3 feet away, and the bathroom window looked out on a field of rusting propane tanks and iron scrap and weeds.
The room was mostly clean and the linens were clean but very cheap and rough. 120 count maybe?
Some mildew around A/C.A/C was very very undersized and took forever to do anything.
Shower was mounted at about 5' 8" and had a good shot at my navel when pointed as high as possible. It is the correct height for all customers that are under 5 feet tall.
The sink has no counter space at all. Only the space on the edge of the bowl could be used to set anything down.
Staff was polite and helpful.
Halls are too narrow to allow you to pass the maid cart with a bag,and there isn't much way to move the cart to a place that both fit past. Plan on lifting your bag OVER your head.
This hotel is below what would be acceptable to Motel 6 or Red Roof. This hotel is not ADA ready.
Carpet was pretty ugly but not really dirty.
There are no backout curtains.
I give this a 2 because it could have been dirty and it really wasn't.
The room was under $100 and for the price it wasn't great but it wasn't a ripoff either.
Will not stay here again.... I'll spring for more expensive hotel to get an elevator
