Hotel theme is like an old warehouse with junk in every corner. The front desk personnel was in a hurry to get rid of you. The elevators were old warehouse medal elevators. The room areas were dark and dingy. The room was dark as well, even with all the lights on. The room had no drawers and closets. Had one large rack with shelves. Beds comfortable and sheets were clean. The bathroom had a 12" step up and the light switch was 10' feet inside the bathroom, very dangerous. The bathroom itself was small and no door only a curtain. Off the lobby were sitting areas but one area you could not sit unless you purchase something this left only stools to sit on. We were scheduled to stay 4 nights but left after one, and were told no refund. The taxi driver told us in the last two days she has taken 8 families to different hotels. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
