  • Older travelers

    The MacDonalds breakfast from accross the street was ok.

    This place is a dump of the first order and I would not stay again if dragged by wild horses. Broken door, tiny room, broken air con/heater so it was very cold. The decor was very tatty and the 1970's shagpile carpet made me sick to walk on (sticky). Never again..

  • Single

    The room was near the street and was very noisey.. from street traffic..24/7. A new coat of paint on the exterior would help too.

  • Group of friends

    That it was close to the area I came to enjoy

    Everything. No coffe in the room, no iron, the carpet was nasty, the showerwall looked like a two year old pasted ti together, the shower floor was too scarey to step on, the towels were paper thin, old and dingy. The curtains were old and wrinkled. I was not offered a reciept after checking out, had to ask for it.

  • Couple

    Staff was really kind.

    Location is in a no go area. Reception is behind a glass window. Rooms are without daylight (to prevent burglaries?) and smelled like disinfection spray. It looks more like a motel for itinerant people. Price/performance ratio was the worst experienced ever.

  • Single

    Cheaper than most other motels. It was 6 blocks from downtown center and light rail/ bus hub. It had a small refrigerater and a microwave.

    Walking the 1st few blocks to the bus/rail hub was somewhat uncomfortable. Not the best part of town, but I had no trouble. The place was a bit dingy. If you want more than a place to sleep and to store some refrigerated food and to be able to micro wave, this place is not for you. It met my needs, but that's about it. The sink had no warm water, but the shower did.

  • Older travelers

    Not much at all .

    No telephone in case of emergency --no fire extinguisher in room or outside walls and hallways -shower very very slow to empty . We asked for a handicapped room -nothing in the room or shower hand handicapped bars -nothing -

  • Single

    The location and the staff very kind.

    Old and dark room, only a window but near the cealing.

  • Group of friends

    Staff was really kind us :-)

    The toilet dint worked fine

  • Single

    The sheets were clean & smelled that way

    Cannot answer, as it says above not to use this review form for complaints.

  • Single

    You get what you pay for. It is near to downtown, many restaurants and other recreation areas. Furthermore, besides these futures, it is the cheapest one in that place. The hotel stuf did what I told them to do. The internet connection (wireless) was OK.

    During my stay, they forgot to clean my room only one day, which is in fact not a big problem.

  • Single

    Larry at the front desk was a class act! Give the man a raise!

    By myself the hotel is fine but would not bring my family.

  • Single

    The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the hotel was in a very convenient location.

    The location was convenient but was in a scary area. I am a female and I did not feel comfortable staying alone there. My bed had fleas, the shower looked very unsanitary, I had no iron, iron board, refrigerator, and microwave. Other than that, I had no issues or hassle with my stay.

  • Couple

    location and price

    safety and facility, location of the hotel was not safe and strange people were staying in hotel and air conditioning was not functioning in 122 degree tempreture and they still let guest to stay the room! They should fix it

  • Single

    Worst hotel I ahve every stayed in. Nothing good to say about it.

  • Older travelers

    it is not a hotel to put in list!!!!! cheap is not always a good way
