I read alot of bad reviews with this hotel in terms of not being clean. So i went to the hotel expecting nothing.
The rooms however were better than what I expected it to be. The bed mattress was pretty good. Only problems I had with the room was of course space, it's pretty tight. There is not alot of area to walk around in the room. Another problem I found is the carpet is not vacumed and also they don't put a plastic bag for the bin in the bathroom. A bag is like 10 cents, come on seriously.
Now talking about breakfast. it's a rip off. a friend of mine(who was not staying at the hotel) had breakfast with us and they charged her $20. the breakfast is not worth $20- it's like cold food(bagels, juice, muffin) sometimes they have scrambled eggs and it tastes soo fake like powdered egg. another issue is the cleaners are the so called "chefs" at best western is kind of gross.
Safety- there are no nearby hotels in that area so i was initially abit scared because I was travelling with friends. It's not that bad- there were these weird drunk ppl who were always at the 38th and 11th av(the intersection closest to the hotel) at 10pm, just have to look away and walk past them. that's the only tackle.
Last but not least. Management is TERRIBLE. Annie seriously has problems and there is another male manager there. there were soo rude to us. Not all the staff are rude, it's just the managers.
