2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The property is very run down and the inside of the room needs renovating. Some lights don’t work, the shower door won’t close, needs painting everywhere, the carpet is dirty and the next door neighbor is like they are in your room. I wouldn’t stay there again.

Charged my card $50 extra for a stain but could not provide proof of a stain or any information regarding it. Finally got it refunded after months.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This place is not so much a motel as a modified apartment complex they gutted out the kitchens from to make space for more beds. The walls are paper thin, I could hear every word the people in the next room were saying. The wifi is super janky and barely useable. The place has cracked walls and is not maintained. The lightbulbs in the overhead fan give off a sickly glow even when turned off. If you want to pay money to feel like you are crashing at a pal’s apartment while they hang out all night in the living room talking and watching TV then this is the place.
