“Its cheaper for a reason...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

It was $55 when most other hotels in the area were $70. In the first room the sheets had a large stain on them and were also ripped. Second room the sheets looked fine. It has an old smell in the building and the TV was very old looking and the color would fade in and out. I didnt notice until later but there was no clock of any sort in the room which I thought was odd. Also noticed in the morning that the smoke detector was missing and a few wires hanging. The room did have a microwave and mini-fridge which I discovered were on a switched outlet so if the lights were off so was the fridge, making that not too useable. Overall I understand it was cheaper but not worth the potential safety hazard of disconnected smoke detectors and whatever that mystery stain was on the sheets in the first room. Will pay the extra for somewhere else next time.
