I had the displeasure of staying here for 5 nights in a tiny room in the basement. We booked a twin room yet I had to share a double bed. The hotel staff are unhelpful and the rooms themselves are too basic. Even for a budget hotel it's bad. Spend a bit more a stay somewhere else.

I don't usually write reviews but this hotel was so BAD that it deserves one. All the bad photos posted are TRUE. Bed Bugs (ended up with several bites), Beds, sheets, towels in very bad condition, carpet dirty and stained, rooms totally outdated and in bad shape, and I can continue the list, It has a great location, but believe...

I know I booked a 2 star budget price hotel, but surely the owner has some self respect and can make it better than this?! The carpet in the room is completely torn apart, the furniture is old and damaged all over, the beds are the same. TV that doesn't work and I could go on and on with more...

For the first time ever I almost didn't show up to my reservation due to the reviews online. I was convinced to go and check it out first. The district hotel is not as terrible as the reviews make it out to be. Yes the rooms are small (and I mean small) but the beds are comfy. Unless you're lucky...

If it wasn't of the bed bugs it would have been ok for a budget trip, but I got bit on my neck and thighs. Other than that it is centrally located, but we had to park our car 3 blocks away because they don't have many parking spaces. I had booked a double bed room but we were given...

My co-worker and I choose the District Hotel for it's location and low rates. Big mistake. We both had dirty sheets, which the hotel refused to change. One headboard and all of the pictures in my room were crooked on the wall. She had holes in her walls and couldn't get into her closet because the door was stuck. Even...

We were on a tight budget and got what we paid for. Before I explain the low rating, I have to say that the shower was great. However, the smell of carpet deodorizer overwhelmed us as soon as we walked into the hotel. The room was small, which we could deal with but... 1. their was no dresser for storage;...

Although the price is alright compared to what one can find in the city, this hotel is very very basic. One of the most striking things is that WiFi is available ONLY in the lobby, and the lobby is a very small one!!! Breakfast is the motel-type, so do not expect anything fancy. The staff members are polite and do...

I read other reviews but decided I only needed the room for one night so how bad could it be? Positives - the shower works, the bed was decent Negatives - I got the single room and it was a shoe cupboard. No chairs and no place to hang any clothes. Wall paint was peeling. Staff - functional but don't...

I had seen the reviews before booking. But I'm alone, so really, anything goes at the right price... Right?! Just about. The price was the absolute best I could get at short walking g distance to the mall! Half the price of the holiday in one block away! So why the question mark? Just make sure you get clean towels...
