You know the saying 'if it seems too good to be true, it probably is'? That sums up this hotel completely! Yes, it is cheap. It is by NO MEANS a 4 star hotel. I'd say 2 1/2 stars TOPS. It's like a 2 star hotel trying to dress up as something much better than it is. Here are the specifics:
- Hotel and rooms are dirty. The first room we were put in had a disgustingly dirty toilet, absolutely not cleaned. We asked to be moved and our 2nd room had sheets with faded red stains on it! ummm, your guess as to what it was but it was disgusting
- The water isn't filtered properly! This is so strange... you will never be able to get the soap off of you! I think it's a soft/hard water filter issue. Another example of corners cut.
- The walls are paper thin. We heard a dog barking all night and called down to complain assuming it was the people in the room below us but the front desk attendant let us know it was a dog from the apt complex across the street! keep in mind we had no windows open... the walls are just THAT thin.
- The hotel itself is dirty. There are stains on the walls, paint issues everywhere, random holes in the walls.
Basically, the owners of this hotel tried to make it look hip/trendy but cut A LOT OF KEY corners. If a hotel isn't clean, I don't care how trendy the furniture is, I'm not staying there! BTW, the furniture just looks trendy, it's clearly very cheap stuff.
All in all, I should have known better. It is super cheap. It's also a dump IMO. Would not stay there again. I'd rather stay at a Comfort Inn... at least they are clean! I would say that whether you like this place or not depends on your expectations and the types of hotels you normally stay at. For us, it was a no-go.
The one plus is that the staff is very nice and quick to fix issues (makes me wonder how much practice they've had!)
