Don't do it! There are better for similar money.

Needs a good power wash and that is in the rooms. Not one coke machine had a soda. No working ice machine. Breakfast was in a super dirty standard room and consisted of two open boxes of cheap sugary cereal or tons of super cheap wonder bread white bread for toasting. We paid $60 and it was worth about $35.00 tops. When we pull into parking lot the was three police cars with their lights on arresting three black women and a young black man. We should have called for a refund right then, but we just got in from JFK and had no luggage thanks to Airline. They are not investing in their business, so why should you. Sleeping in the car at a rest stop would be equally safe. The phone is next to the toilet.

Very disappointed

We chose this hotel for the price and location, but my disappointment could not have been bigger. The bathroom did not work, they did not clean our room every day, and when we complained the housekeeping did not come at all anymore until we left! Would not recommend to anyone!

GO STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!

Very disappointed overall. I've stayed in less expensive hotels that were superior to this place in every way. Waited over an hour just to check in and then they gave us a room someone was already staying in. No ice in the ONE ice machine they had located on the fifth floor. The key always malfunctioned.

huge dissapointment

Was not told hotel was in construction condition when booking. Most rooms unfinished and doors open with graffiti on walls. Some ad pics were of the hotel next door. Couldn't get room cleaned and get towels and cups. Only internet was in unfinished tiny lobby. Building not well lit.Did not feel safe. Toilet didn't flush. A small handful of local channels on old TV. Don't know who rated them 3 star but id like to know what they based it on.

Lost not found

Room was not cleaned after previous occupents and when going to complain about it discovered the lock was broken and my bags were trapped in room for several hours until door was broken open. Room doors are exterior so alot of noise from passing customers all night.

Metropolitan Resort Review

The overall experience was horrible. We were party of 4. Took 2 rooms. Both room's carpets were damp,wet and sticky. The beds and the bedsheets and the quilt were horrible and it has got lot of stains on it. Most of all there were lot of bedbugs. The moment we stepped into the room. Every one were itchy and got big bite marks swollen big time. The aircondition was bad. It was more like a motel than a hotel.I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
