      I like the hotel location, also the outside of the hotel was nice.

      The rooms were ok, but need remodeling, from the outside you would of thought the inside was better. Hallways were really dirty and dark. breakfast should not be consider breakfast, only small cup of juice, milk, one type of cereal and doughnouts not were not even fresh. other hotel offer fresh doughnouts, more choice of cereal and bread.

      Totally dissapointing, it was really expensive for its ugly conditions. To mention only one of the lots of them: the bed clothing was really old, bad smelling and even with holes.

    • Group of friends

      I was originally put in a room with gang tags on the walls and furniture. The bathroom door had a head-sized hole in it. The bathroom had a moldy smell and I could see mold in various places on the walls and in the tub. The towels are paper thin and they give you a dirty look when you ask for more. One of the windows did not have a lock. Upon expressing my dissatisfaction with this, the clerk stated that it was probably someone who had the room before me. I said, I am sure it was but I don't want my card to be charged for damages so I was reporting it. He was very cavalier about the whole thing and refused to even try to set me up in a different room because it was too late. I had to wait for the morning clerk to move me. The next morning we were moved to a different room and it was more acceptable - just very basic. Don't even expect a clock radio or knobs on any of the dresser drawers. This is not a hotel I would recommend for anyone. The neighborhood is bad, really bad. We took our belongings with us each time we left the hotel. I had my boyfriend and another male friend with me. If I were alone, I would not have stayed there after seeing it.

      No!!! No!!! No!!! No way!!! Don't go to this hotel!!! Dirty faucet, dirty hair dryer, not clean, stinks in the bathroom, no toilet tissue roller. Tv remote doesn't work. Don't let the name of the hotel and free breakfast fool you. It is only flake cereal and doughnut. Staff not friendly. The $$$ spent here didn't worth. Will not go back.

      Worst hotel you would,,,, ofcourse we select it for the least cost but atleast you would expect some facilities. Not much to say. And more over if you are from India, you would get least respect from the receptionist person. He always **cks

      Poor Breakfast and not a big place to run a hotel. Parking is difficult

      The location downtown is ok, but you need to have a car.

      The room was dirty, obviously not cleaned before we arrived. There were bottler under the bed and sweets in the drawers. Also we had a broken bed and nobody noticed? We changed the room, the staff was friendly. Breakfast was awful! We wanted cereals, but the milk was rotten. Nobody came to change it when we asked them. The only possibility was to eat super sweet donuts.

      Staff wasn't nice at all! First we came at 1pm and check in was from 2pm. Rceptionist left us waiting untill 2pm and then he told us he has no rooms we booked and offered us one room for 6 pax!He didn't care we ordered two double rooms.He said he can cancel our reservation if I want. After 1/2 hour arguing he finally gave us rooms we ordered.Be prepared for everything!POOR Hotel and poor staff...

      This was the worst hotel that I have ever stayed at!!!

      There wasnt enough lighting. The carpets are frayed. The comforter had stains on it!!! How nasty is that?? The bathtub had hair from the previous customer and you had to pay for ice? I will never go back and never recommend this hotel to anyone!!

      The staff was the best part. They called a cab for us several times. The last time, another person tried to take our cab before we got to the street. The desk clerk yelled at the man and argued with him until we claimed it.

      It was affordable, it was close enough to where we needed to go, and the desk clerk was convincing as he described the lack of any security incidents in the year and a half that he had worked there. It seems to be located just outside a somewhat seedy area.

      The air conditioner fan would go off along with the compressor, so when the compressor and fan turned on throughout the night, it always woke me up. There was also little soundproofing against people talking outside late in the pool area 10 feet from my door. I had to get out of bed at 11:15 PM and ask them to be quiet.

      Free wifi and available self parking

      Pillow cases sheets and blankets were cheap old and beat up. Carpet felt dirty and gross under bare feet.

    • Family with children

      I liked the elderly receptionist guy. He was very helpful. But the guy in the morning I found to be very harsh. The rooms could used a carpet cleaning. And once every other day a fabreeze spray or carpet deorderizer. Breakfast could have frosted flakes for the children. The parking is narrow. My rented car got hit and no one said anything.
