Checked in here because I needed a place to stay for a night and shower. Didn't even wind up staying there but room was nasty. Bathroom was nasty. Just stay away. Only room available and for $180?! It was a total ripoff. People grillout out on the sidewalk of the place. I'm a pretty big guy and I had to... More

Nothing but rude. Only cleaned hotel room once while we stayed. Pictures were not the same as the rooms. I recommend staying somewhere where they actually care about the cleanliness of your room and know how to treat guests

I asked him for something and he wanted to get all this other information from me.At the end, he said he cannot help me with what I wanted. He would not get the supervisor on the phone or from the...

The customer service is someone cursing you out when you want to ask a question about why the room is so nasty, I would not take a stray dog living on the street and let them stay in 1 of these rooms. Do not leave anything in your vehicle it will not be there in the morning. Even for the... More
