We stayed there for 2 weeks and frenquently have stayed there before since it is in a great location to my gf job. We came back from being gone all day and saw 2 huge roaches in the bathroom & one near the mirror. Not only that we were told we had to ask for room service. Where I was just bamboozled because it was a 2 week stay & that should be offered. Honestly this place has fell off very bad from when we first ever came to visit almost a year ago.

No house keeping. No amenities at all. Gentleman at front desk was very off putting. The kid who worked there was very kind and was probably overworked. Smelled so strongly of smoke. Room needed fixing especially in bathroom

Steps to the second floor were rusted through. The sheets and bed covers had cigarette burns all over them. The peephole was removed from the front door and a piece of cardboard was shoved in the hole. Towels were dirty,and there was graffiti in the shower. Also, at 7AM some woman was doing something in her car and her car alarm kept going off for an hour. I had originally paid for Two days, checked out a day early, and the man who worked there wouldn't refund my second day. Garbage room in a garbage Hotel.
