Recent guest reviews

Conveniently located, reasonable price, somewhat dingy.

Dingy and weird smells. Not even a cup to rinse your mouth. Very slow check in.

The room was very noisy, we could not sleep the entire night. We tried calling the reception but nobody answered. My daughter had auditions at the Frost School of Music in the morning she went to the University tired and exhausted. Horrible experience.

The entire hotel has a very unpleasant musty, moldy smell. I first noticed in the lobby and it was worse in the room. I tried to open the window and get some fresh air, but it was screwed shut. I asked about this at the front desk and whether I could get a room with a window that opened, but was told that all the rooms had non-functioning windows. The woman working at the desk was polite and made clear that she didn’t disagree with my assessment of the hotel’s lack of cleanliness. She basically said that she understood my displeasure, and said that she felt that management was aware of the situation and just didn’t want to deal with it. She had no problem with my request to cancel my reservation, and issued me a refund of all charges. I actually was almost feeling I’ll by the time I left, as though I was breathing air laden with black mold.

Wasn’t a good decision to stay here is a very old hotel ( 80s ) , room was big enough, furniture are in bad condition the bathroom is the worst ... Breakfast is a joke coffee and bread that’s it .... and you have to pay for the Parking In the hotel

Nice hotel. Good location. Accomodating staff. Whole foods, movie theatre, restaurants, shops in walking distance

there was too much noisy about the other guests. I herd everything

Just horrible ... Lot of noise. Works in the night and discussion until 2 am in the lobby. Staff not nice, and not professional. Breakfast included but forget it ! What else ? ....all ...

Nice enough for the price. Walls are too thin though. Couldn't sleep because of the bamming noise from the room above and beside mine.

The only good in the hotel..was the air condition...

When I first got into room. I found a dirty tissue on the bathroom sink. I asked housekeeper to clean. During our stay the staff avoided my room, no attempt to provide services. There was also a sign from the hotel stating that they would provide new towels every three days, this would help them save money. The bathtub was scrapped severely. ( Regret not taking a picture) The hallway smelt like urine. There was only one person at the front desk to do checking. The shuttle bus is from 6am to 8pm...so if you your flight is late or early you are out of luck. It took the shuttle bus an hour to pick me up, but at least they came. I had to take an UBER back to airport due to my flight time. The breakfast was mediocre, consisting of waffles, bread, cereal, coffee, orange juice, butter, cream cheeses, canned fruit. The staff seem to be more helpful to Spanish speaking custumers....???

The most horrible thing was the big disgusting cockroaches that scered me when I saw them midnight and couldn’t sleep at all. I reported that to the front disk lady. She was very cold and doesn’t care.it was really disappointing

BEWARE! UNSANITARY CONDITIONS: I booked this hotel 1 hour before I went in and as soon as I entered the front door, the horrible stench of mold overwhelmed me, it was so bad you could see it running up the walls. I asked for the hotel for my money back and they they refused, I asked Orbitz for a refund and they did nothing, I even asked Choice, but they didn't even bother to return my email that I sent them.

This hotel is a bargain. But be aware that the building is old, it has mold issues that are noticeable by the scent. If you have mold allergies, this may be a problem. They would benefit from mold remediation, and deep cleaning of their HVAC system. Otherwise, the staff was very friendly, check-in was a breeze, and the room was spacious, and as clean as it could be, despite the mold smell.

Would never recommend staying here. Hotel was and smelled dirty/damped, light in the bathroom did not work, there was cracks on the walls and remote control did not work. When service was called for remote control I had to wait hours and still had to go to lobby to have it replaced. Customer service was terrible! Also there are hidden charges for use of garage and safe.

Apart from the location which was near to the hospital that I needed to attend, the services was the worst I have ever experience booking thru Orbit. The Supervisor assistant was horrible, she was rude and very dismissive and when I told her I was going to report her due to her behavior, she displayed a do not care attitude and told me I could go ahead. When I told her that the room was not what was advertised online, she told me that's what I paid for. I would never recommend my worst enemy to this hotel. I spilt tea on the room in my room from the first day and the spill was never cleaned. Horrible

Hotel was needed for a nights stay till our flight came....hotel was a bit smelly but you tend to expect that with high humidity places...air conditioning was in blast nd when I tried to warm the room the heat did not work...water pressure in bathroom was bad nd water didn’t get hot...made you pay to park in their structure....would not stay again

made this reservartion for my 63 yr old aunt. they did not let her check in for more than 3 hours. would not recommend to anyone
