Stayed here for two weeks because of a job in the area- NEVER AGAIN!!! I'll lose my job first. The place was a dirty, scary, dangerous place to be in. There was old dried food someone had spilled in the refrigerator that looked like it'd been there since the place first opened; the air conditioner didn't work right half the...

Where should I start!! The place was infested with hookers and drug dealers. We had to barricade the door with our amps just incase one of the drug dealers wanted to storm our room. Speaking of the room, it was disgusting; I think i am going to get a tetanus shot. The bathroom was like something you would see in...

A crackhead looking for a place to light up would find this place unsuitable. If you survive a night here you deserve a purple heart. I stayed here during the SB between the Eagles and Patriots and was so terrified I couldn't take it and had to leave.

My company (which was in Chap. 11 bankruptcy at the time) booked me in here for an extended stay. Very dumpy, small rooms, not the cleanest place. Odd smells coming from the lobby. Worst part is that I was stuck with humongous phone charges that were added to my bill for calls I did not even make. I complained at...

My stay at this hotel was the scariest experience of my life. My friends and I were staying here for the FL GA game and were excited about the location, until we actually got there. It was miserable. There were roaches, it smelled funny, there is a strip club in front of the hotel so who knows what kind of...

We where on tour with a Belgian rockband in the US in 1996. And although I stayed in hundreds of hotels this one I will never forget. The carpet was wet, there where animals all over the walls and shower. The vending machines didn't work and so on... It was so bad two of us went sick staying there. I...

This hotel was so filthy and in a such a terrible, scary location that even 2 local police officers told me I should not stay here. I immediately checked out. I had reserved the room for 2 nights, and even though I didn't spend the night, the clerk wouldn't cancel the reservation and charged me for both nights. I strongly...
