Friendly staff at the desk. Actually felt bad for her. Place was out of control. Started by pulling into parking lot and watched a few less fortunate walking through carrying a blow up mattress. Went inside and checked in and went up to room. On the way up the place reeked of marijuana. I had read a few bad reviews about long term dirt and poor cleaning. Also one for BED BUGS. Yep I checked. Found a bed bug casing and one escaped into the carpet at the wall. Called hotwire who refunded (thanks so much). CAUTION active prostitution in hotel. Yep there is a review prior from someone else. While packing up our car in the lot we noticed a women of the night standing in the window of the hotel facing the parking lot scantily clad sucking on what I hope was a popsicle. While in the parking lot a guy was screaming into his phone complaining that someone didn't have any more weed. Another guy passed in and out of the building 5-6 times in a matter of an hour. I'm sorry to write this but I honestly struggle to have a lot of faith in the glowing reviews on this property.
