The toilet in my room was stopped up. I requested a plunger and was told they would take care of it while I was out. I returned and it was still backed up. No one could find the plunger… I checked out early the next morning. Will not visit here again.

We loved the helpful service and speedy check in. The room was perfect for what we needed, and the area had several close restaurants and even a near by starbucks. Just 5 minutes or so from University campus it was remotely close and convienent. We recommend it and would definitely stay again upon our next visit!

Honestly, there was nothing to “like” about this property. Face tat guys sleeping in cars in parking lot. Meth heads walking around. Hotel is old and outdated. Elevator very dirty and smelly. Hallways are smelly. Room last updated in the 90s. Hot water took 5 minutes to get hot and faucet squealing. Bed very uncomfortable
