Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff was rude. They placed me in a non pet room and didn’t tell me until the next day after they assessed a $100 fee. The building is dirty and outdated. Pillows can be used as armor as they are so hard they could stop a bullet!

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Terrible. The guy who checked me in was rude. He had a very thick accent and he got annoyed when I couldn't understand what he was saying. The non smoking room smelled like smoke and the front desk guy went with me back to the room and said he didn't smell anything. I asked for a different room. The room was not clean, the mirror and vanity were dirty.

Just okay. The bed was comfortable, very firm. It was clean but a bit old. Not run down, but just old. Breakfast was limited. It is what you’d expect for the money. Very quiet.

everything was fine but because of thieving you had to ask for an iron if you needed one and there was no remote for the tv and the coffee pot. they said people stole everything. i'm sure this isn't just applied to this particular place but is probably a problem everywhere.

There Is No Elevator
There is no elevator. For those of us with knee issues even half a flight of stairs is a challenge particularly trying to get a suitcase up that half flight. Part of the left faucet on the bathroom sink was missing a piece. The breakfast consisted of two pots of runny scrambled eggs.

Not the fanciest of hotels, but at the price point it exceeded our expectations for cleanliness and good service.
