“Terrible Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

This place was terrible. The hotel clerk was RUDE not only to me and my friend, but even the customers in front of us. We spent at least 10 minutes arguing, before we reached an agreement. The hotel clerk was demanding, and he didn't understand our simple requests. I am willing to pay an extra $40-50 to spend a night somewhere else. I highly recommend staying somewhere else. Also, there were foreign stains on the bed sheets.

Room Tip: Don't do it!

Filthy, The Earthquake warning signs scared me and my family members. Unfortunately we did not have funds for any other place and we had already paid for this dump. I DO NOT recommend this place unless you don't mind scummy curtains and unstable buildings. Stay Away!

The room was relatively clean and quite. Good value for the cheapest available hotel that I found.

Room Tip: If you need Wifi - ask for a room next to the reception (first or second floor)

we couldn't sleep the whole night due to the noises coming from the room next to ours.
towels were not very clean, but the room per se was not so bad; maybe there should be more sound-isolation from other rooms.
positve aspects: it's very cheap and there is free wifi.
negative aspects: sleep quality (due to the noises) and cleanliness.

Room Tip: maybe our room was the noisiest room of the hotel; try to ask a quieter one.

We arrived at hotel a bit after check in time, however, we were told that our room was not ready, we were told to come back 2-3 hours later, however, we were allowed in the room just to use the restroom, but were warned the room was still not clean. The person at reception was a bit rude and I am not sure if this is the way he is or if indeed he was being rude, but over he gave the percetion of not caring about the fact that it was past check in time and that our room was not ready. I was able to see other people checking in and they were also told their room was not ready. We basically just used the room to sleep, we arrived late at night, and we found no parking, this place only has about 13 parking spaces and about 25 rooms, so we had to park in the street, and be warned that cars can only park in the street for one hour after 9:00AM, so we had to get up early to be sure to move car. Room it self looked old, as the furniture and TV, but over the room was okay to sleep, but definitely not a place where you want to stay to spend time.

Room Tip: Ask for room in 1st-2nd floor, no elevators

Not worth the money & time! First we came with 2 young children and they said the room we booked was too small for all four of us and that it woud cost another $20 a NIGHT to get a room for the four of us to fit. The walls are so thin that you can here EVERYTHING that was happen upstairs and next to. I mean EVERYTHING! We had to call the manager to get them to quite down because the kids even woke up. Next we requested that we don't have our room cleaned. We came back from breakfast and the room was cleaned and everything on the bed was moved. The worst part was we had family come to pick us up for dinner and the manager called us to see if they we going to spend the night with us so he can charge us for all the additional people. SERIOUSLY! I have never been so disrespected in my life!
