I booked this hotel for a two day business trip, last minute purely on the rate. I found out why the rate is cheap. The "front desk" is a pass through window outside in the courtyard. The room was shoddy and not very clean. The bed sheets were presumably clean but had stains on them and no mattress pad. The bathroom had tile and many grout joints were covered in black mold. The kitchen had an unventilated gas water heater. I'll swear I had bugs climbing on me but I never saw any.
I would pay the extra $50 and stay next door at the Best Western.
