Not recommendable

This hotel did not fulfill my basic expectations. The carpet was so dirty that my feet turned black. I requested some clean towels and was told that only housekeeping have a key to the storage rooom; therefore, I needed to wait until the next day.

Old, in need of updating and repair

Stay here as a last resort. Hole in bathroom wall, pealing wall paper, old carpert and furnishings, coffee maker broken, blown circuit breaker when using the bed side lights ( I was told not to use the lights) refrigerator did not work, room odor and so on. I was told they would replace the coffe maker-never happened on my two day stay. A lot of the rooms are rented weekly at $59.00 a night. You get the picture. Amazingly they were full. Very funky place - don't bring your family or wife or feel their wrath.

Clean Close To Airport

A no frills inexpensive place to stay near the airport. They will send a driver to pick you up (or drop you off) from the airport free of charge if you schedule in advance. The rooms were clean but well worn. Not a very attractive neighborhood - across the street from "Bad Boy Bail Bonds" and next door to the liquor store - but I suppose, depending on a person's lifestyle, having those businesses close by may be perks.

Clean and Cheap, but not so nice

Everything was clean and the fare was fair, but other than that I would not advise choosing this hotel. The staff lied to me about airport transportation (THEY DO NOT PROVIDE A SHUTTLE, FYI) and didn't really try to solve the problem. They were pretty disorganized and didn't seem to know what they were doing or have enough people working, but they tried. If you can afford it, pay a little more and stay somewhere else.

Decent value.

Nice pool. OK restaurants nearby. The AC was somewhat inadequate, as we had to keep it running all night. The building is older, and so we heard a lot of thumping and tromping when people were walking and closing doors to other rooms. The bed was ok, but the blankets were kind of lumpy. The free continental breakfast was actually pretty good, with a variety of cereals, breads, juice, coffee (no black tea!), etc. If you are looking to save some money, it might be acceptable.

The basics done right

The hotel met my expectations. The value is very good. No frills but what they do they do well. Rooms are large. The TV works. The room is clean. The bed is comfortable. Location is great if you need to get business done close to downtown. Light rail is right across the street. Entry and exit into 17/880 is a piece of cake and a few blocks away. Plan to stay there again.
