Not what you would expect.

We booked this hotel because it was a “3-star hotel” with good reviews. It was hard to find and we had to use a GPS app. The neighborhood was not nice with lots of dilapidated buildings around. The hotel itself was very old. I had to ask the security guard to let us use the hotel parking lot. The staff were friendly enough and we were able to secure our booking easily. No bellhop service. Elevators were very small, would probably fit only 3 people.
The room looked clean, no dust or offensive smell. But it was old with stained carpets & curtains, the picture frames askew. There was an old table, box-type TV and extension cord. All the furniture were chipped and in need of refurbishing.
The bed was placed oddly against the wall, sheets smelled like bleach and the pillows and bed were lumpy. There were no slippers available.
The bathroom looked clean and had hot water. The shampoos were used, no toothbrushes available. Upon closer inspection, the shower curtains & floors were moldy.
The next day, we woke to traffic noise and a lot of shouting outside. We availed the free breakfast. We had some toast and hotdogs, nothing special. We checked out after that.
The staff were friendly and the room did seem like they were cleaned. It's just that the hotel is very old and no longer qualifies as a 3 star hotel. We've been to 5 star hotels, hostels & even Traveler's Inns before and we would say that this hotel is not a 3 star hotel, more like a very old Traveler's Inn.
