The only uniqueness was the water back... not front... the water was filthy and the fense arounded screaming for attention. Not welcoming at all. The staff were unprofessional on their phones and poor customer service manners. The parking lot.. lobby and bathrooms were terribly filthy. There were prostitutes allowed to sleep in the lobby... hang around the hotel bathrooms and parking lot. The pool was disgusting.. a filthy dirt line all around it and yellow water. The room we had was dirty and smelled like cigarettes. The bathroom had fongus all around it.. the desk was broken... the pillows were yellow and the mattress smelled musty. Overall i would never return here and i wouldn't recomend it to anyone.

The worst experience I’ve had at a hotel. Tried to get 8 hours of sleep and booked a room at 330 AM. Arrived just after 4 and they WOULD NOT let me check in or give me a refund!!! Said after 4 AM they treat a reservation as a no show- even though it’s not on their site AND I just reserved it!! Horrible manager and horrible customer service with Expedia

This was the worse hotel I could ever imagine staying in. This place was filthy, old, wore out mattresses no light bulb in one of the two lamps in the room. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.
