This place was booked using the Internet so the price did not hurt our pockets. The advertising made it seem like a great place to stay, no so. The room was dirty, I found human hair balls on the floor. I'm not making this up. We left it alone since it was along the wall and away from us having any contact with it. Not hard to miss at all. I figured it would be cleaned up the next morning. It was not, showing us exactly the type of attention the room was given. The windows are so old that the outside noise comes right into the room at night. We were awaken several times by police, ambulance and fire trucks running their sirens to who knows what was happening nearby. People walking by outside could be overheard. I still don't get why we had to pay so much for parking. The parking lot was open to anyone who wanted to walk by and take a look at the cars. The magnetic cards stopped working several times causing an inconvenience for me and my family. Too far from the main attractions on the Riverwalk, and the individuals loitering along the route made us concerned for our safety. Next visit to the Riverwalk will not have me staying at this place. Sorry.
