2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
House keeping never came to clean. Had to call for towels. Walls were disgustingly dirty. Bed had a sink hole in the middle that we had to fight to stay out of and on top of each other. Great location though and manager did come right up with towels and apologized.

2/5 Poor

Business traveler
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Upon our arrival, the manager on duty was asleep, and the place locked up. We had to knock on the door multiple time to be able to get/check in! The room had a rough mold/musk smell, and the place dusty and carpets are not clean. The bed cover was burn with cigarette holes, the main bathroom towels were literally worn out, should've been thrown away! The hand towel and the bed sheets had stains of what seemed to be blood stains. The place was in a really poor condition. On a positive note, the gentleman who checked us in/out, was nice upon our departure. But that's about it! Sorry, I do not recommend this place.
