“Great place... for a meth head or prostitute”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

We went in mid February and were put in room 116 around the back next to the alley.
The room was very cold, smelled like B.O. and smoke (despite being non smoking). We found blood on the underside of the quilt on one bed and fecal matter (I assume by how it looked) on the other quilt on the second bed.
As we we left to get our money back, the door in room 117 opened and there were no less than 4 tweaked out meth heads inside all staring at us looking extremely paranoid.
A+++ if looking to hang with tweakers , prostitutes and dealers; not so cool for normal people of families.
The front desk person was somewhat pleasant and pretended to act suprised when we told him. We went to the thompson Inn and had a nice overnight stay instead

Room Tip: look for the rooms without blood or syringes in them :)

Reviewed 7 December 2012

I was not impressed that the room was COLD!!!! It took over two hours for the room to warm up. When a guest registers the heat should be turned on! The bath tub was so old and grimey none of us would bathe
