4.2 Mediocre
Pros:Absolutely nothing
Cons:The sheets were dirty definitely wasn’t changed. The chairs were very loose. I was afraid to sit on them in case they broke down. Noise level was too loud until 1am. Staff wasn’t responsive.
2.0 Poor
Cons:The General Manager was rude to two disabled adult guests during check in. He said: "We have problems with those kind," humiliating these guests. He tried to cancel their reservation, saying: I don't care about the money." After being politely but firmly asked to honor their reservation, he let them check in. These guests stayed for 9 nights without any problems to the hotel or other guests. These adults were disabled, not drunks or drug addicts as he seemed to imply.
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:It was affordable and conveniently located. The bed wasn't terrible and the room contained a mini fridge and microwave. I was able to book a room on short notice. It was a cold night and the heater kept me warm enough.
Cons:I arrived around 9 pm. First I waited at the desk for several minutes ringing the bell and eventually hollering "hello?" toward the back to find out if there was a live human around. Still nothing. I called them from my cell phone and a woman picked up and apologetically emerged from the back, appearing to have just woken up from a dense, deep sleep. She mentioned nonchalantly that she didn't think the wifi was working and hoped it came back by morning. The room was nothing fancy but had at least the essentials. The wifi was out for most of the night but the cable worked. I immediately found several small ants in the bathroom, which didn't freak me out much because I respect ants for their tenacity and teamwork, but would still much prefer not to have them in my room. I could not get any water to come out of the shower no matter which ways I turned, tilted, and twisted the knob. I didn't expect much from this place, and chose it solely on price and location, but I still left quite disappointed.
2.0 Poor
Pros:The location was concient however it in no way made staying at that hotel worth it.
Cons:The hotel was dirty, old and run down. All which would have been fine if the price was right. However upon checking in the front desk staff insisted we owed more money then Kayak said and tried to hassle us into paying more. They did no provide a print out of the costs and we we finally did get an itemized recipt it was clear they were gouging us.
