“Hell'tel!”
Reviewed 5 December 2011

This had to be thee worst place I've ever stayed in my life! The manager was very rude and disrespectful, lacked professionalism. I arrived, stood there for about ten minutes ringing a hand bell and eventually was greeted by an elderly Indian man who spoke very little English however he was short and rude only seemed interested in taking my money. I was told most of the rooms had broken heaters and was given a portable hand held version and told "do not break it". I couldn't believe this, got to the room which was like room from the bates' the size of a small child's room. Upon inspection the floor was filthy, what appeared to be old blood stained the comforter, there was a hole in the GLASS window, broken light fixture in the bathroom, dingy brown specled towels with traces of hair in them, a duct taped tv, a dirty mini frige, and to make matters worse I was greeted by what looked to me like a "bed bug"! The manager refused to refund my money and told me simply "call the police or leave" needless to say I left and will never return to this hell hole!
