Recent guest reviews

The Hotel failed to mention it is in the hood. You can hear gunshots and kids screaming. Orbitz i wouldn't even advertise it!!

run down crack hotel flat out terrible place!!!!! and hookers and pimps in the lobby and the morning girl was sleeping and very rude would not call us a cab said they are all closed at this time of night it was 4:30am and almost missed my flight just a flat out dump and a crack tube on the floor in the bathroom

Definitely not the best place to stay wasnt the worst but still very mediocre and get ready to take the stairs because the elevators are not sturdy

I say this all the time. It's cool for what it's worth. You can't complain with the prices.

It was ok for what it's worth. I am a repeat customer at this location. Sometimes good sometimes horrible but u can't complain for the prices.

Horrible Cannot believe I was recommended this hotel by ORBITZ Heard screams , fights and loud sounds by doors being kicked all night Never slept the whole night The people at the front desk were very rude Treated very badly

Really clean Surprisingly very comfortable for the price. I would stay again and tell others

Well I stayed two night in this hotel it was really not want I expect from the moment I walk in the room I gat a Funny smell .... Never going back

On my 2nd stay I had a mouse in my room. On my 3rd stay they gave me a room with a little stand up shower where the floor to the shower was made on a slant towards the drain which could make you slip because it's hard to keep your balance in such a small space. This time they added a new $20 deposit to my bill which was not charged the other 3 previous times is stayed here. Then the owner made me feel like I was a child by speaking to me condescending and sarcastically to basically sat if I don't like it I can leave. I've gotten burned 3 times with these guys. That's it for me! No more at this place.

Just a little city get away. Something simple nothing major and with this spot that's all you get a basic room with a basic price. Right up my alley.

Wasn't able to get in the room. The key didn't work. I was asked to let security know when l was using the room, so he could open the door for me. When l asked for a refund l was told that due to policies they didn't give refunds. I thought it was unfair after finding out none of the keys l was given opened the door. I decided not to stay in a room with an inoperable door lock. Still fighting for my refund

Just a basic place to crash was clean very old place high security

The hotel is located in a really bad location, the place works like a motel you can hear everything thru the walls.

HORRIBLE...NO LIGHT BULBS IN LAMPS...NO HOT WATER...NO MICROWAVE...NO BLOW DRYER...OVERALL DORTY....AND GHETTO FELT VERY UNSAFE

Back in the day this was OK. Now old but well priced. Very noisy

The room we stayed has mice ,and we complained they charged extra $10 for new room.Staff is very Rude

I was terrified... police helicopters and transients outside of hotel. Unable to sleep

There was a rat in my room, water tasted like toilet water, bed is crazy stiff, location is in the ghetto

This hotel is very outdated and in an unsafe location.

I am unable to rate hotel because I was invited for some cousins at N Y. to expend my visit at their house. Thank you
