Long line at check in. One worker only at the front desk. The hotel is dirty and smells bad. Needs to get updated. Very outdated. The only good thing about the hotel was the walk to the SAP center. Quick 2 min walk.

The street where the hotel is located is nice. The actual property was really dark, full of trash and random people walking around.

It was okay. The musty stuffy smell was a little too much. They should have instructions on how to switch from bath to shower option.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The room was pretty clean, but the overall hotel (hallways, etc) had peelimg baseboards and needed some fresh paint. At night there was a lot of outdoor noise (motorcycles, loud music, conversations) until about 1:30am. The noise, combined with a very hard mattress, made for a poor night's sleep. The staff was very friendly and helpful, although with few options to help.

The only redeeming factor is its downtown location. It has clearly never been renovated. It smelled. The carpets were stained and dirty. The bed made noise and had broken springs. The towels and sheets were old and tattered. I witnessed several drug deals in the parking lot. There were people drinking outside the front entrance until I woke up the next morning. I felt unsafe and would never go back.
