Liked: Cleanliness
At night, the area does not feel the safest. It took me a while to figure out the TV remote as they are not the originals. I wish the lobby was open in case of an emergency or to get some coffee. Nevertheless, this is a nice spot to spend the night.

The check-in was very easy. The staff was friendly. The room was missing items, and once they knew what I was asking for, they promptly got me them. There was an issue of cleanliness with the first room, but the third room they gave me was great! The bed was very comfortable, the room was nice. I hesitate to write the rest, but you need to know as I was fearful of my life. The area is unsafe. IF you stay here, CHECK YOUR WINDOWS to make sure they are locked! I had an unexpected guest partly come through my window while I was in the room. He removed the screen and literally opened the window and came in until I started screaming. You would think that with one way in and one way out, the staff would have been more proactive given that the intruder had a getaway person in the car, who was there for quite a while pointed at my room. They then left past the office. There is no reason the staff (all 3) didn't get the license plate or come out to see considering I was screaming for help and called them on my phone, since there wasn't one in the room. They didn't apologize either. In addition, there is no second lock on the door. The police were responsive after about 15 mins. and checked the camera footage. They moved me twice to ensure I was comfortable in a new room. Make sure you get a room in the courtyard. There was black mold above the shower in my room though. If you stay outside the courtyard, beware and request a different room. Good luck!
