“The Hotel that HELL FORGOT!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2010

If your looking for a place to end your life then this is the place. My wife and I stayed there as a low cost last resort. It's not a HOTEL in the modern sense of the word. It's just a place to shack up until you can find a better place to live. It's no frills in every sense of the word!!!! You can pay by the week (about $160.00) or you can pay by the month (about $640.00) What do you get for your money? You get to share a bathroom with 60 other people that live on the same floor you do because there are no bathrooms or showers in any of the rooms. There is a kitchen on the second floor for you to cook you dinner with the 200 other people that live in the building. Good luck with that!!! There are many places(Hope your Spanish is good) to go out and eat but Wilmington, California is not the kind of place you want to be after dark. Rough neighborhood if your not Latino.Bueno Suerte! Also if you have a complaint don't expect to get any help from the manager. Usually the management is not the HELPFUL kind of people you'd expect. You'll get better service from the roaches that climb your walls.

As you enter the halls and climb the stairs you sense an overwhelming feeling of impending doom, isolation, loneliness and despair that can be only found in this country's worst prisons. GUESS WHAT? That's who your neighbors will be. The former populace of the penal system. RAPISTS, CONVICTS, DRUG DEALERS, CHILD MOLESTERS AND WIFE BEATERS. OH HAPPY DAYS!!! :D The smell of puke, crack and marijuana filling the air throughout the building lets you know that your in the wrong neighborhood. Children that are unwanted by their parents run around without supervision. The children are usually hungry and unwashed. Best of all the parents don't give a [--] about them. It's the HOTEL that HELL FORGOT!!! Not even the devil would stay there.
