“Felt like I got scammed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

I booked the room prior to arrival with a reservation agency and was quoted $90 and I would be charged upon arrival. She said the price didn't include "some minor fees they may add on". Turns out those fees were an additional $25! I wish I had just told the front desk clerk to shove it and looked elsewhere but we were tired from driving. The room was decent, but the neighborhood is sketchy. Wouldn't recommend statying there.

The services was not that great but what do you expect from a place located in this area. On top of that I found roaches in our bathroom. This place is disgusting. There was some people that stay couple rooms away from us and they hung outside their room the whole night with music on. I've complaint but nothing was done. For the prices we paid was not worth it!!!! Never returning here again!
