1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The staff was horrible. I pick up second floor to have a quiet room. However, even at 11:30pm, my next door people were still talking, laughing, opening/ closing the door. The even worse thing was the staff. He knocked at my door several times from 11:30pm, last at least 15 minutes. At first I thought it was a man who knocked next door. But it it turned out he knocked my door. I am a lady who stayed in room herself. I was so scared l, didn’t know who was knocking, and what was going on? I called front desk and nobody pickup phone. The knock continued, and I had to response. Then it was staff who asked me to turn down the music!??? I told him I was very quiet and didn’t make any noise. The noise was not from my room. 20 minutes later (after 12am) , the staff knocked my room AGAIN, still for several times, I asked him what’s going on again. He said there was music and TV noise. I told him again I didn’t turn on music or TV! I was very quiet! Around 12:30am I heard music came from down stairs. The staff knocked at a lady’s room at midnight for so many times without having basic judgment. How rude he is! I feel unsafe and violated.

The “free breakfast” is a lie. Room had a used coffee machine with water and a spent keurig cup in it. Floor was dirty.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
There is nothing unique or impressive about this hotel. When we checked in and it was down hill from there. The bed is hard as a rock, the desk area was so close to the bed we had to pick the chair up and move it to be able to use it. There were hanging and exposed wires for all the electronics in the room. definitely will not be staying here again for the 130 a night after fees and taxes.

Pros: The location was convenient. The service was great. Cons The room smelled like carpet cleaner. The bathroom and wash basin was separate, and there was no towel hanger by the wash basin.
