I was asked to review by Hotels.com and it has not showed up yet, so just to make potential guests aware.....this hotel is so gross. Do not stay here. They clearly have no standards about cleanliness or safety. The shower had two inches of water in the bottom with a dead roach in it that had to be three to four inches long. The damaged ceiling tile in the bathroom was plugged up with a wad of toilet paper. Burned out light bulbs. Dirt collected in corners of the rooms. Bathroom had some weird remnant of a 1970's rotary dial phone mounted on the wall which they had just ripped the receiver out. Apparently this was also the bathroom fan?? Which did not work anyway. And caked with dust. Gross, gross, gross. Stained chairs, stained carpet, torn curtains. Do not stay at this hotel.
