2.5 stars would be an adequate rating
My lovely, sweet and well intentioned wife whom is my best friend really meant well and I think thought this was the Holiday Inn where we frequent....
We walked in and were immediately overwhelmed by smoker stench and then some. Apparently she got a smoking room somehow.... We called the desk and they said they would switch it. We went to the new room and it smelled much better!
The window view is a multilayered low income home made fence with a residential old garage can outside our window.
The towels were clean though and the young Indian guy at the front desk was really nice.
(First room) One of the two beds smelled like Febreeze and burrito in the central area of the sheets which is a bad sign.
(Second room) this one was almost 3 stars and lots cleaner. The beds were not smelly but still lacked that super clean bleachy smell that I love even at home.
I would say if you get a room here for $60 - $75 for the price it is great. If you are used to nicer things then it will not meet your standards. You get what you pay for...
Note to all hotels: wash towels and sheets with bleach and people know it is clean and don't let people in the rooms.
