Like that it showed and had an old building feeling. The staff were friendly the lobby was lightly decorated and seemed nice and cozy. As for the room it was clean and had the toiletries we needed my only 2 complaints was that 1. I wish they would have a small microwave to be able to heat up food and 2. Would be to fix the pipes in the restroom which were literally held on by duct tape that was painted white to apparently match the walls, which they did not. Other than that it was good.

Nothing was unique about the property. I did not like everything about the property, the bathroom was dirty, the shower is not working, the bedsheet is not clean, the bed is terrible, my back was hurting so bad, it wasn't comfortable at all. Hair all over the place which shows that it was not cleaned after the last guest. I chose non smoking room but immediately I step out of the room I am always enveloped with cigarette smoke.

This is not a hotel! So ghetto and not upgraded... dirty and very noisy with drug dealers and homeless people everywhere... definitely don’t recommend this hotel to anyone!

BEDBUGS confirmed as of JULY 2019. They can climb the outside surface of the bathtub too (yep, tried sleeping in the bathtub), so no safe haven. The AC compressor didn't kick in until 1 AM, so it was sweltering hot. Surrounding area is absolute ghetto if you're into that.

It was a very outdated hotel, bare minimum, no phone in room, noisy hallways with people fighting in hallways and in a bad area, staff was nicr

Thr vintage look was good but l was bitten by bedbugd and cancelled my stay and had to get an more expensive hotel

It is an old property that is not in real good condition, there is no air and room was showing it's age, need new shades.

The parking was secure. The room was clean. GOOD TV and GOOD Wifi !

Bad experience. People smoking weed through out all apartment. Horrible experience never again
