1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Outside was neat and clean. There was no elevator for upper floor and elderly parent was unable to climb stairs. Room was less than adequate. Water was stagnant in sink, overflow drain in tub was missing face piece. Back of bath door had upside down gothic crosses etched into it. There was an inch gap in the exterior window between the wall and the window frame. Musty/moldy odor in room. After 2 minutes, we turned around and left. Had to find another hotel with a pool, breakfast and a sense of safety.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Do not stay here! All I've got to say is someone was severely attacked by another guests pitbull in the stairwell as I was checking out. The rooms are horrendous with holes in the walls; cigarette burns in the bedding. Looks decent on the outside but a homeless camp seemingly pops up after 9pm. I repeat.. Do not stay here.. spend the extra 20 bucks on a red roof or any where else

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room I stayed in has bad smell, horrific walls, broken toilet paper holder, no power in outlets, smelly cover and pillow cases, non-functioning shower head, bugs in the bathroom, stained sink, etc. Such a room condition is unacceptable to anyone or for any hotel.
