“Stay only for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012 via mobile

I cant say I would recommend this hotel nor would I return but to be fair it was probably ok for the money. As other guests have reported the carpets look disgusting and the lift area scuffed and dirty. Painting was underway at time of stay though so hopefully its getting a face lift. The sign on the counter regarding staining towels etc must go it only makes you go eww and makes you scrutinise the sheets and towels more, which didnt bode well for our first room (refrigerator missing because they had run out and bed that was extremely squeaky )which had clean, but stained sheets. Management was happy to change our room the next day and this one was a little tidier. wifi worked well, it was pretty quiet, handy to the city and the price was right.

Stayed June 2012, travelled as a couple

This is a crack infested hotel, False advertisement worse stay ever in the world, I would of been better off on the streets. The management was unbearable, Me and my husband could not believe that we got treated very rudely. Hot breakfast my butt anyone can eat cereal even without milk, I mean really I'm not the one to really complain but this is a shameful place to even call a hotel. The chinese lady had bloody towels on the front desk arguing with people to pay for them, very unprofessional and loud. The pool was full of leaves, had a groggy mildew and moldy smell to it. I will never ever stay in around or near this location. They need to go ahead and shut it down or get they business together. I could go on forever and I was there for 2 nights in this run down hotel, If i hadn't booked online I would of went elsewhere. I stayed away majority of the day spent the least amount of time in that room, eww and gross, Look like bullet holes in the walls, burns on the curtains, stains on the walls, just a murky look to the hallway, They lure you in with the check-in area after that your pretty much effed! NEVER AGAIN!!

First of all a guest of ours was greeted by a pan-handler in the parking lot front entrance to hotel. Secondly, we found a large dead cock roach in the room the morning we were leaving. Also, the restaurant was closed.

I would not recommend this hotel or would I stay there again.

Room Tip: do not stay here

i used to bring my son the have surgery at med city dallas when it was a doulbetree and a clarion it was good for the money[with a decent breakfast] , but since ramada came in and took it over these people need to go to hotel 101 or something. if they don't want to serve breakfast at least don't advertise it> a bowl of fruit loops omg>>signs at front desk make you uncomfortable, glad i always carry wipes and paper towels > there was no pitcher for coffeemaker well they brought one but the coffeemaker did not work so they knew about it> the electrical for the tv , micro & fridge did not work called desk and they told me it may be unplugged, i guess they are trying to save money i had to plug in myself. a/c did not really cool very well. small roach crawled up on night table around phone i killed it and reported it i don't know if they believed me offered to show it to them it was in trash can >> not even a i am sorry>>not a squeamish person but i was looking around after that wondering if something was going to crawl up on me

Recently moved to Dallas and decided to stay here for 15 days before finding an apartment, the deal was “OK” 50 per night, BUT, pictures are extremely photoshoped, yes, they have free WiFi, they DON’T have a restaurant, its closed and has been closed for a LONG time, they have a breakfast service, bread and milk.. If you want eggs, pay 2 dollars… the Hotel is FILTHY literally FILTHY the carpets are stained and rooms are smelly.
I tried to talk to Mr. Oh who runs and owns the Hotel, his attitude was LITERALLY “well you paid 50 dlls, this is what you get, want some fancy hotel, go to a 100 dlls hotel” anyways, I had a LOT of baggage with me so instead of moving out I decided to find an apartment FASTER… which I did, THANK GOD!
Some front desk personnel were nice, Robin Oh (son and Manager of Mr. Oh) is nice, but still they cannot do much, as they say, and I QUOTE them “we are not making money”
Additionally MUST of the guest are long term guest, some people who had friends all the time at nights and were noisy and a couple of more people not very likeable to be around.

Room Tip: If you are JUST passing by, take it as a LAST resort, 1 mile ahead you have a 6 mile hotel which is...

Clean and comfortable, entire hotel non smoking, "truck parking" easy when I was there, but not much business, which is why the $50 per night rate was in effect, I guess.

They have you sign a seperate agreement that, if you stain the towels you will pay for them, at some ridiculous prices.

Onsite restaurant closed when I was there, and not much within walking distance to eat but certainly doable, Jack in the Box, McDonalds, Starbucks, Subway, CVS, Gas station.
