I read the reviews before I booked this place for my husband and I to attend spring training baseball games. We are presently staying at the one on Yorkshire, ground level, and most of the reviews I read turned out to be true. We have had no issues with the management; they have addressed our issues (basically no internet service most of the time). We will have been here 11 days. Leaving tomorrow. I could not get another hotel around w/a kitchenette b/c I waited too long to book, that's why we ended up here. Yes, it is a 'Section 8' type of place. I would also recommend (I had forgotten about this review) a 2nd or 3rd floor apartment. The microwaves are brand new; everything worked for us (except internet, again). They (mgmt.) told us not to pay for it b/c it is down so much. There is an 'initial' shock.....my stepson, who lives in Phoenix, came to pick us up and said, "man, dad, even I wouldn't stay here .... I locked my doors as soon as I pulled in". That kinda says it all. Furniture is old, old, old and the bed is just disgusting. We wanted to park my stepsons truck in the parking area with the roof over it and mgmt. told us yesterday to make sure we park forward....do not back in ..... the police who come thru at night need to be able to see your license plates to run a criminal check. Again, that says it all. Pool is nice. I do believe drug dealers are there, but we kept to our own business and weren't in the room much. Take everything of value with you! The bathroom was okay; the tub needed a good scrubbing. Also, we requested a non-smoking room (there is even a sticker on the window that says non-smoking) and the room wreaked of stale cigarette smoke. Pulled out the nightstand drawer and someone had used it as an ashtray.....cigarette butts and ashes in it. My husband would not even let me walk out to the truck w/o him being able to see me. Please don't stay here if you have kids ..... there's an Extended StayAmerica in Peoria on W. Bell Road that is MUCH better, inside doors vs. doors that exit directly to the outside, for the exact same price! That is where we will stay next year!
Stay on 2nd or 3rd level.
