THE BEDS WAS A SIZE OF A TWIN BED BUT HAVE IT LISTED AS A QUEEN... ROOMS VERY SMALL AND BATHROOMS WAS NOT UP TO DATE

Bad. Look good from the outside but inside is bad.

I came home for a visit, stayed at your hotel, when I first got there I checked in the lady at the desk was very nice I honestly didn't think that she should be answering the phone and dealing with the people in front of her cuz it was a little busy. I got to the room the room, it smelled as soon as I walked in, the toilet was hard to flush so I went back to the office got another room pretty much the same situation when I walked into that room but I wasn't going to keep playing musical rooms so I just dealt with it, there was ants and no hot water in the sink and my last night stay the air conditioning when I woke up there was a big puddle underneath the air condition. Then come to find out, your hotel has a lot of crackheads, so no I would never recommend it.

The hotel was rundown and did not seem safe. There were a lot of local people staying there, not sure why. The stairwells were dirty, the elevator was very slow and had no AC. The elevator was so slow that at one point I thought it stopped working. To top it all off, there was a big pill of poop outside in the parking lot!

When I went to check in there was a line out the door. Apparently, everyone was having a hard time and no one just got there stuff and was out of there. One woman working who was obviously struggling. Took over an hour to get to check-in, which took ten minutes. When I got in to the room, there was hair on the wall and in the refrigerator. There weren't actually pillows on the bed, but two pillowcases; one with folded flat towels in it, one while crumpled up sheets in it (I'm not kidding!). I had to be up at 6 and had already spent way too much time at reception. So, I decided to just suck it up. There was hair in the bed and a blood stain on the coverlet. It was pretty horrible. Apparently this was a refuge for displaced hurricane victims and it felt it. Last night I was there, there was partying surrounding me. Just loud music and screaming at children to shut up and go to sleep. Thank heaven for ear plugs and beer. The girl at reception was nice, but obviously overstretched. I can't imagine staying there again.

I felt unsafe due to the other guests staying in the hotel. There was lots of fighting, drug dealing and partying. The cops were on premises twice. The room was minimally sufficient. There was no maid services, you had to get your own supplies from the office. Half of my stove top didn't work.

there was no iron in the room...had no room service for my stay

Overrun with cockroaches. Reserved a week, left next morning. All night fighted off bugs. Then our bill got messed up and charged to wrong credit card.

If price is the deciding factor then this is a good choice. If your looking for high quality then this is not the place to stay. Our room floor was not the cleanest, meaning that after we walked around the room in our bare feet and then jumped into the shower, there were black foot prints in the shower from the dirt on our feet. I pulled back the sheets and the sheet that we would have covered up with will stained with what looked like "lube" or something of that sort. My girlfriend said, "That is our Welcome Sheet! Our Well Come Sheet! I can not sleep under that sheet." I got an extra pillow from the front desk, we had 2 on a queen size bed. Two bath towels, two hand wash cloths. No hand towels. And as soon as we walked into the room it smelled like smoke. I got what I paid for.

This is a rundown hotel, the staircase was filthy there were cigarette buts all over, smell of marijuana, inside the room the floor was sticking to your feet, the room was not once cleaned or change of towels or bedsheets, overall terrible.

Horrible, no housekeeping and very dirty complex with roaches.

I was only able to stay one night because the foundation of the hotel was leaning. It was clearly under construction when I got there, but I had no choice but to stay my first night and lost my money on the second that I'd prepaid for. The police actually arrested the owner due to knowingly operating under unsafe conditions.

Nice hotel and nice location. Really nice restaurants and shops in the area. Nice place to get away whether you're a local or from out of town.

Worst place ever . Must have been a homeless shelter, guys hanging out drinking beer in front of their doors , room had broken locks on the windows changed rooms and the second one had a missing refrigerator and bed was lopsided. Next time I will sleep in a rest area. Got a refund after not sleeping that night

If you need a bed, there is a bed. And shower. AC broken, ridiculous strong smoking room, none others available. Old carpet, old kitchenette, old TV, decent location. Very very very basic and no frills. But you do get low rate compared to others that are $20-30 a night more. The people that stay at this facility are a bit shady gross

Basic motel with a bed, bathroom, heating and air-conditioning. Also it has a small fridge and cooktop, though no kitchen utensils, glasses nor dishes. Area is quiet and I was not bothered.

I felt unsafe due to the other guests staying in the hotel. There was lots of fighting, drug dealing and partying. The cops were on premises twice. The room was minimally sufficient. There was no maid services, you had to get your own supplies from the office. Half of my stove top didn't work.
