I arrived at the hotel with my 16 year old niece. Upon arriving to the parking lot, 4 people were in the "private" parking area shooting up. We ran from our car into the hotel. The inside of the hotel was clean, and seemed fine. However, once we went to go back to the car, we found two young women walking up and down the parking lot selling themselves. A car with an older man came over to pick up one of the women. As a young woman, I felt incredibly unsafe. When I spoke with the manager, he said that there was a security guard that was on staff from 11-8. Unfortunately, if this was what was happening at 2pm, I was not willing to stick around to see once it got dark. It was a horrible hassle trying to cancel the room, and I ended up in tears trying to get a refund, as I had booked through expedia. The hotel was unwilling to help me with this situation. This hotel should be responsible for advertising the neighborhood for which it exists, and if they are unwilling to do that, at least they should be monitoring their property 24/7. So disappointed....
