    Room was pretty big. No fridge, no microwave, no coffee maker, just basic hotel. Pretty clean. The only drawback is the surrounding, graveyard accross the street, and lots of fishy people hanging around. Will not go back.

    You get what you pay for... no coffee machine, no fridge, no microwave and no breakfast. But we did have the company of a 1.5" spider! Stay somewhere else! The only good thing was the friendly girl at front desk.

    We've stayed here before, and we know it's a bare bones place - no refrigerator, microwave, etc. But this time they didn't even have a working ice machine. So no ice. For a few dollars more I'll stay somewhere else from now on.
