Found mold on electrical outlets and throughout the room, excessive dust and dirt on surfaces, smells, damaged drywall, toilet rocked and the seal leaked between commode and floor. The staff was friendly and did what they could, but lipstick on a pig is still lipstick on a pig.
Right across the street from what looks to be an abandoned manufacturing plant, complete with rusting water tower. Hotel is 30' away from active train tracks and two trains came by complete with blowing horns. Vacant lot with half naked homeless on the other side of the tracks.
Continental breakfast was pastries on a tray sitting on the chair behind the front desk. Had to ask front desk for pastries if you wanted them. Also had dry cereal in a dispenser and coffee.
Advertised Free Internet, but was not working during my stay. Checkout was via manual old style credit card machine. Key to room was 70's vintage plastic punch card with holes.
