Housekeeping was not good. The room next to us had a dog and 2 cats.. Flys and gnats were an issue. The front staff was friendly tho. And the location was great.

The covers and under the sheets was a mess and dirty , the room smelled like smoke as soon as you walked in we smelled it , the staff was horrible I kept telling them I had paid and they kept telling me I didn’t I tried to get my refund back they said it wasn’t refundable which is a lie . Any other hotel refunds you back , and I tried to call Expedia and they didn’t answer just hung up on the line . VERY RUDE! and never going back !

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We lowered our expectation as you “get what you pay for” (paid $118 for one night stay). But entering the room was a nightmare because of the strong smell of cigarette (We booked a non-smoking room). The pillow sheets have stains (and even holes) in them (probably washed okay but it’s a stain that’s tough to remove). Bathroom terribly needs updating. We stayed in a lot of budget hotels across the US (even those <$50) but this is the worst. Will definitely suggest to just spend a bit more than book here. If you smoke, this hotel probably is an ok hotel for budget travelers because of the location.
