Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel location is convenient. But other than this, the room is dusty, cleaning service is not done at all, furniture is broken and old, bed sheet is not clean, and the worst condition is the smoke smell is full of the room while it’s emphasized it should be a smoke free room. The smoke might come from outside or other rooms due to the poor window condition. The second hand smoke was outrageous and so bothering!! Have been reported to the staffs, but they couldn’t do anything helpful. Will never go again!!! I’m still suffering from the smoke as I traveled back to home!!

Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2019

More like Motel

The room condition and location is good. However, this is more like motel than hotel. No closet. Bath tub has no curtain so bathroom will get soaked for sure. Bad job on soundproof so you will hear your neighbor talking or having "activity" in the night.
