The elevator was out of service and my room was on the fifth floor and I had to take the stairs every time. The room is very small and its door did not lock properly. I have to make sure the door is closed or not. Having a sink inside it makes it worse because water splashes out on the floor. The room has a bad smell. The bathroom is shared and very small. There was a window in the bathroom where you can hear sounds that seems like some mice. Finally, the neighborhood is not quite good and there are a lot of people sleeping on the streets and they listen to music all the night.

It was dirty. The carpet throughout the building was crusty like a dog that has never been washed or groomed. They had no pride in their business. The shower was horrible and hot water took over 25 minutes to start up. The shower was not kept. Things were rusty. The bathrooms had no sinks to wash your hands, so you could imagine how dirty the door knobs are. The direct TV only had local channels and HBO. All other channels were locked out. I told the owner but he did not know what to do.

Stinky urine dirty bathroom!
Bathroom smelled like urine, there was an open window with a ladder leading to the window! Walls are super thin and there was very loud music and stomping around until midnight. Scary entrance with intimidating scary people out front. Toom was clean and there as a nice blanket. Please wash the bathroom!!!

Housekeeping only walked in on me once in my locked room. Management woke everyone up at 10pm one night because the computer crashed and they were making sure, with proof, that everyone in the rooms had paid to be there. The elevator was broken and they have 5 floors, or when someone leaves the elevator door open it doesn't work and has to be manually closed. Staff said there were no rooms available but if you book online you get a room. Staff doesn't know much english so they call their son who is offsite, was double-billed once. Some room lights don't work, bathroom was locked for 3 days on the inside, they don't tend to let guests in after 12:30 so consider that your curfew. not many outlets in the room so if you have anything to plug in you may need to unplug stuff. Most of the doors slam, other guests sometimes scream at each other for a half hour to an hour in the hallways late at night. other than those things, not as bad as expected.

This should not be sold as an accommodation... If you are a homeless person looking to get out of the elements for a night then I would say go ahead and book.. The place reaked of cheap pinesol. The front office agent seemed pissed I waked him to ask a question... There is no hot water, no ac and the bathroom is filthy with black mold n green fungus.. DO NOT!!!!! I say DO NOT book here. You will end up leaving and going elsewhere. For your own health and sanity. I am very surprise this place has passed an inspection to be a registered establishment to do accommodations
