I got bedbugs and covid. The woman working the front desk didn't believe my video of a bedbug nymph was in fact a bedbug and didn't send anyone to check, so I slept in a bed with bedbugs until the next day when I saw an adult bedbug in my bed and was finally believed by the front desk with that video. Had to wait around the front desk for 30 mins at 11pm for them to find me a new bed to switch to by calling folks that were scheduled to check-in who hadn't yet arrived, since whomever had been working earlier did not set aside any beds for administrative use. Thankful to that man at the front desk for calling around until he found me one though.

Very cool decor; room was very clean, bed comfortable, everything was well-appointed. I would have liked to be told to bring my own lock as I was sharing the room with 3 women I didn’t know and had assumed the locking system would allow me to use my own password.

The shared room was BAD! The faucet was broken and just poor facilities for a hotel even if the room is shared. I could’ve booked a private room in a motel and had better facilities for cheaper.

It was really great, im just not used to sharing a room with 5 other people. The bed spaces are pretty private though and pretty good, however, it would be better if they added a little curtain on the side of the bed for extra privacy. Overall though, it was a pretty good experience and I would definitely go back.
