Recent guest reviews

Shower was cold. Actually all the water was cold. The light in the bathroom didn’t work. Phone didn’t work.

Great staff, very friendly. This place is great for the money if you can deal with hearing the train go by, which doesn't bother me. Good value overall

No fun at all. Stuff not friendly and helpful. My stay was terrible

Stayed in room at back of facility. Heard trains all night. Low quality room.

Place was a bit damp..close to everything.workers were nice no complimentary breaKfast.just for short stop.need improving a little

We booked this room in hopes that our short stay in Florida would be a memorable one . Boy Was I wrong there is no security at all. people would come in and out as they pleased from the streets the gates at the back and side of the hotel were not secured at all or locked so basically stay at your own risk and that's coming from someone who has lived in NYC/Brooklyn all their life..., right in front of my room people were smoking weed/ cigarettes and hanging out all night it was like a party every night and this was on Sunday and Monday night !!!!! ( the turn up was real) The room had no water pressure or COLD water so my 4 year old daughter husband and i showered in hopes we didnt get 1st degree burns the toilet wouldn't even flush so imagine that . Mind you when I was checking out there was woman complaining of her room being broken into her clothes and medications were stolen.i couldn't even sleep due to the hanging out that was going on outside of the rooms weed and cigarette smoke everywhere nonetheless the train that passed through out the night was just an added reason why I would never ever stay there again. Orbitz you have to do better with what you advertise

Terrible Hotel, don’t stay here, at 1:30 AM two persons get in to my room, thanks a good y have a security door Iock, my question is, how I possible that other persons have my key and open the door at this hour, I don’t recommend this hotel by nothing

The 3 Star rating is a lie. This place is filthy. It should be a 0 star rating. I felt bad for the front desk staff because they must get abused all day long by unsatisfied customers. We moved from the first room - lights didn’t work - curtain was broken & sheets were dirty. The second room wasn’t much better - no towels, dirty floors, nasty shower curtain and filthy chair that should have been thrown in the garbage. We hardly slept because a safe in the room kept making noises all night and to top it off - there’s a train that runs past it all night - every 30 minutes or so! Don’t be fooled by the photos. It’s not habitable!

Thanks for the comfort. I was treated very well upon my arrival. I will refer a friend arriving from another city.

Although the staff was good and the room was clean (with a musty smell), the restaurant was closed, bed lamp didn't work (bad wall outlet), no refrigerator, wi-fi didn't work. Not good for the money, over $200.

Next to train tracks amtrack starts approximately 4:15am. The hotel is terribly outdated run down water spots in ceilings and/or mole in wet areas. The furniture is scratched soiled and very much needing replacement. The hotel has a renovated sick and mirror but the overall condition is extremely differed maintenance and the neighborhood is questionable at best to feel secured as the area is one step up from seedy area and the pictures on the website is staged and does not represent the actual slum hotel that exist

Thank you for writing a review. Your feedback is important to us as we strive to provide all our guests with the highest quality service and accommodations. I regret you were disappointed with your stay. The trains are required to sound the whistle as they cross the street adjacent to the hotel. We are negotiating to get a variance of this requirement. As for the rooms, we are currently extensively renovating the hotel. Please give us another opportunity to welcome you. We're sure you'll be pleased.
