There was only one light bulb out of three lamps that worked. There was macaroni noodles in the coffee maker when I went to put water in. The place is not well maintained and you have to go to the third floor to get ice. I suffered through one night and that is enough.

Filthy floors, stained and worn out fabric on couch and chairs. Rooms smelled dusty the curtains and furniture look original. The floors are laminate and I dont think they have been mopped in months. The halls are kept clean but not the rooms. I had to buy slippers to keep socks and feet clean to get into bed. Killed roaches in bathroom at night. Never staying there again.

The facility is definitely dated, but it was adequate. we were assigned a room over the laundromat so we heard the staff pushing carts full of linen all hours of the day and night.

When we 1st arrived, i opened up the cabinet to the refrig & the cabinet door fell off. Plus the refrigerator did not work. I called the front desk & they said they did not have maintenance and they could only duct tape it for us. There was a huge party going on the 1st night....until about 3am in the morning. lots of cussing, pounding and back & forth between several rooms. I tried calling the front desk several times - no answer. I went out in the hall to let the party know that we have children..can they keep it down. After that, there were several who intentionally came by the room being loud, rude & overall obnoxious. I felt fearful that they were going to kick the door down. tried again calling front answer. Finally party calmed down after 3am. I went down to the front desk & talked to them...was told it was not a 5 star hotel...nothing they could do. They did say the police were called to the party. I asked if the same guest were staying again the following night, as we were reserved to stay as well. they said they I requested new rooms. when packing to leave, we checked under the bed to make sure we did not leave belongings...and it was then that we discovered a mess! there was so much garbage, left over chicken boxes, spilled drink containers, etc.When we moved to the new rooms, we immediately checked under the bed...and found the same thing. Front desk said they were not required to clean under bed. we checked out. Worst ever!
