I booked this hotel because the pictures they showed showed a nice, renovated property, with close proximity to the venue I was going to be at. Well, when I got there, it was a dump! Even my two kids could't believe how bad it was. The bathroom was disgusting - there was black gunk on the outside of the tub - I was afraid to open the curtain to see what it looked like on the inside. The dust and grime in the bedroom was just as bad. The lights by the bed didn't work, the tv was so old, only one light on the desk worked and the floor in the bathroom had hair on it. Needless to say, I skipped the shower. One plus - the beds weren't bad and the sheets were clean and crisp. I'm glad I didn't have to pay full price because even at the price I paid, I paid too much. Luckily it was close to the Toyota Oakdale Theater. The help was nice, but it doesn't make up for the shambles the property is.
