The guys at front desk charged me $10 more than what is mentioned in my booking receipt. This is the first time a hotel charged me more than booking total. Extremely bad staff and service. Please look into this team.

When looking for a hotel I read so many reviews about homeless people on the streets. I found that beaches the Encore Expres was slightly higher up there were not problems with this. I felt really safe walking to and from the hotel on my own. Staff were lovely and really helpful. I had my own room which was a...

This place needs an elevator and face towels. The room rate isn't worth it, but the dorm was cheaper. It was a descent stay though. The stairs aren't conducive to caring large luggage. The shared bathroom I didn't like.

Service and location were good and room was more than expected. The walgreens are very close. Also there was no elevator so it was a little hard to move my luggage, but I am generally satisfied. There are many places to eat near the hotel.

Be in mind that this is a budget hosting. You are not booking a five star hotel. Comfortable and spacious rooms (with fridge and a sink). The rooms are cleaned daily. It does not have air conditioning (in summer it can be a problem). The hotel has received several packages for me without any charge (thanks for that, guys!). The...

Overall I had a good experience and I have stayed here several times before. This time however the staff treated me as if I was trying to scam them out of $1. It was incredibly rude and disrespectful and made me very uncomfortable. Because of this experience I will not return again.

The staff are what made this place, that and the location. Unfortunately a few power points in our private double room didn't work which meant the fridge didn't work so our food went bad overnight and it wasn't fixed throughout our four night stay. On the first night our television was working but from the second day onward the television...
