2.0 Bad
Cons:Very dirty environment. I won't even recommend my worst enemy to stay there, it was stinky from the lobi down to the room and very unsafe for my family so i decided to go search for a better place to spend the night with my family. It was a waste of my money because i didn't spend the night there
4.2 Mediocre
Pros:good experience to become a Exterminator !! nice few roaches crawling around in bathroom! oooohh….
Cons:nothing, because i'm not planning on becoming an exterminator !
2.5 Bad
Cons:Worse hotel room I ever had !
2.0 Bad
Cons:Our room was filthy , a room came out of my boy friends backpack. On top of it there was no air conditioner.
2.0 Bad
Pros:Roach Infested hotel in a terrible neighborhood. We walked into our room and there were roaches. We left within 15 mins. Husband was trapped in elevator. The place is runned down. They refused to refund my money when we didn't even stay.
3.1 Poor
Pros:The front desk lady was nice.
Cons:Room dirt with hairs in bed. They change my room immediately but the next room had hair also. The location it's kinda ghetto and the people who where staying looks like drug abusers. Really smelly bad place. I feel sorry for the staff but it's the truth.
2.8 Bad
Cons:Room had no curtains broken blinds Broken utilities Not a safe place to stay because of the neighborhood the hotel is in
2.0 Bad
Cons:Bullet holes, receptionist behind bulletproof glass, thugs living in apartments below that came from prison, history of murder, ect. Just don't even think about booking this place if you want to make it out alive.
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:There were hardly things to like in the hotel except the vintage building.
Cons:Locality is not safe to walk, elevator is very old and very clean, hotel beds are not comfortable, room amenities are old.
3.1 Poor
Pros:Last minute booking, and this was literally the only available hotel in the area in our price range. It was very old and outdated, but the room was clean and we didn't see any bugs or mice as other reviewers said. They told us not to park on the street or our car would be broken into. We didn't get murdered or even robbed!
Cons:The hotel was in a horrible area and we were fearful for our lives the entire night. Needless to say, not the most restful sleep we've had. While we were checking in, we overheard another guest say that her room was broken into and things were stolen.
