The property is very old and stuffy. Rooms are so so with small TV.

It was not properly kept and we brought bed bugs along. The property was musty and the hallways smelled like people were smoking marijuana in their rooms. I am disappointed Orbitz recommends this sort of property. I personally have stayed in other low cost locations but well kept, nice and clean.

Ice machine wasn’t working:( a small inconvenience, but my boyfriend and I had to drive to get some. Office printer wasn’t working for a copy of my statement. The whole hotel just seemed “off” and stretchy clientele hanging out in the parking lot. Overall the price was fair for the stay. I will not be returning.

The room was clean and spacious. It was a little confusing to get to the property, as we didn't see a sign and it is set behind other buildings.

Great front desk staff - very friendly. The place is permeated with curry smell - disgusting. Also a lot of mold smells throughout. The advertised breakfast is a bowl of granola bars - with a sign reading "one per person" ... hardly satisfying and a false advert - there is no breakfast

The place smells of mold and curry. Friendly staff.

The price was great, room was clean and the hotel was quiet so we could sleep. This hotel is set back from Milwaukee Ave so you don't hear as much road noise. Breakfast was just coffee, tea, muffins, granola bars and instant oatmeal.

Dated, but the location and price were very good. The breakfast was minimal, but acceptable.

Clean rooms for a great price. Lots of food and shopping near by.

Wasn't aware till we got there that hotel doesn't change change sheets nor picks up garbage from room. Hotel reaks of people cooking in their rooms. Like staying in a third world hotel.

The hotel is very hard to find, there is no signs along the road for the hotel and the hotel building can not be seen when driving down Milwaukee Ave.

We weren't there much but the room was clean, beds were comfortable but it's location was a bit hard to find at first.

Room was clean, but had a distinct ordor. Chose hotel based on shortness of stay and price.

good hotel with decent amenities. location is a plus

Stayed here just for a few days while traveling and it was a very comfortable hotel with very reasonable prices. I would have liked a few more amenities but it was great for how much I paid.
