“nasty smells”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

stairwells had funky smell, breakfast was meager and pathetic, afraid of walking barefoot on carpet for fear of what I might catch; staff was friendly although pit bull behind front desk was unnerving

I stayed for four nights on business. Nice and quiet. The staff were really friendly. I found the hotel very unique and a great value. The location is also close to 10 fwy and minutes from Ontario Airport.

Room Tip: Get a room on third floor away from 4th st. Much quieter.

I stayed for one night. I was on a business trip. I made the reservation through Expedia.com, looking for the most inexpensive hotel in the area as I would only be sleeping there for a few hours before I was on my way. Pleasant check in with a choice of smoking or non smoking. The staff is very kind and helpful and check in was quick and painless. There was some graffitti on some of the parking spaces which was a little concern about the neighborhood
The hotel has free parking, internet and a continental breakfast. My non smoking room was very clean, especially the bathroom. It had an LCD flat screen tv with remote, a microwave and small fridge in the room. Bed was very comfortable The internet worked very well and the room was good for the night. However the carpet, though clean, was very stained and torn in some places. Otherwise, it was fine. I didn't really care as I was only there to sleep for a few hours.
Got up the next morning, bathroom worked well. The breakfast was fine and very sufficient for my needs.

Room Tip: My room was on the street side, but very quiet. I guess any room would be okay.

Before booking this hotel, i had read the reviews. There were many positive reviews, but i should of listened more to the negative reviews. When i arrived and was being checked into the hotel, i saw a man run out of the hotel and started to vomit in front of the hotel entrance. I turned to the front desk receptionist and said, " i think that guy is vomitting in front of your hotel". The response was that he better clean it up. That's when i knew that i made a huge mistake by staying here. Too late to cancel, so i tried to stay positive. The 1st floor smelled awful. The 3rd floor did not smell. so that was a positive. Walking into the room, it was dirty. It needs a MAJOR overhaul. The walls are stained, cracked, smeared, and written on. The sofa was disgusting, dirty It needs to be in the trash. . Being in a non-smoking i grabbed the cigarette stained burnt comforter from the bed and covered the sofa. The end tables, table and coffee table were dirty. The T.V.remote battery cover is being held by a BANDAIDE!! So GROSS!!. The positive, there is a mini fridge and microwave. The bed is very firm and uncomfortable. My boyfriend called it the "concrete bed". There is a K-Mart and a fast food restaurant across the street. Oh, And lucky me i get stuck next door to a couple who is arguing, yelling and slamming the door several times.. So if this is all you can afford, good luck and hope your stay is better. Next time I would rather pay an extra $20 a night and stay at a Comfort Inn. I booked it for two nights but leaving the next day. I would rather lose the money and than stay here another night..

THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLE, DO NOT STAY HERE! While walking to our room we smelled nothing but Marijuana. They offered us air freshener. Nasty people live here, crack heads, etc. We begged for our money back but they refused. Concrete is what their beds are made of. Crack pipe burn holes in the nasty, dirty floors. I was scared to walk on it barefoot and wouldn't. I am very disgusted and will NEVER stay in this dive again.
