The floor was extremely hot, the airconditioning barely worked, some of the outlets did not work, none of the lights or refrigerator were plugged in, the television worked the first night but the other 2 nights was completely static and un-useable, the room had dirty floors and a disgustingly dirty bathroom

This is not a hotel. Just a filthy apartment.

Posted Jul 21, 2016 on Orbitz
This place is disgusting. It doesn't not look much like the pictures. The "front" desk pictured on orbitz doesn't exist... You have to go to another building to check in, and the attendant was unprofessional and not helpful. When you get to the actual hotel across the street, there is no front desk and no attendant. It's just a small, dirty, empty lobby. Upstairs it gets worse. Elevators are from the 60's and smell like mildew. And the room? The room was the best part. Smelled disgusting, dirty bathroom, hot (a/c wasn't working right because it was 30 years old), and generally gave a feel of someone's dirty living room. I don't EVER leave reviews online, and this is honestly my first one ever. I didn't stay the night... Booked another hotel 30 minutes away just to avoid actually sleeping in this place. $160+ is a joke for this hot filthy cesspool.

This hotel is not worth the money. Please update everything and do something about the smell in the hallways.

Worst hotel I've ever stayed at

Posted Mar 29, 2016 on Hotels
It sucked. The rooms smelt terrible, we were supposed to have pull out couches and there wasn't any. We were supposed to have smoking rooms and we didn't get it. The bathrooms were disgusting and there was graffiti in the room. The staff was nice and that's about it.

Hotel looks and feels like a motel from a movie.

Hotel staff, 1 man working 2 buildings, the night we checked in he had to run across the strret with us to check us in, his attitude was nasty with headphones in ears. Stepped on 4th floor to strong weed smell. No batteries in tv remote, ancient tv. Just horrible!!!

Extremely disappointed in condition of room.

Posted Nov 24, 2015
The hotel looks like it used to be a college dorm. The room had a very strong chemical smell in it and it was not well maintained. There was mold on the curtains and no way to control the heat, which was blasting.
