This is THE WORST hotel I have ever been in to date. It's in a shady part of town, the staff is friendly but does not appear professional, and the overall feel is appalling. To start, let me just say, this hotel's pictures look NOTHING like the hotel. The lobby has been renovated, but as soon as you step into...

This hotel is good and basic and clean. The breakfast is included and it's very basic. Clean comfortable.no extra charge for small pet. I would recommend this hotel and would stay again. It's in an industrial area , not as nice but 10 blocks to a mall.

Substandard hotel that hasn't been cleaned in years. Stained carpet, cigarette hole in chair, dirty toilet, grimy handle in shower. The bed had sheets so thin and worn I'm surprised they didn't have holes. The TV stopped working when we used the microwave and would turn back on.
