The front desk staff was nice and helpful but this has to be a last-resort option. The place is occupied by long-term loud tenants. There was a weird smell. Wifi was spotty at best. No fridge, no microwave, not even a table in the room. Not a good experience. We paid $40 for a double room... I guess we got...

Absolutely filthy and a waste of money. According to another guest I had the 'deluxe' room...atrocious paint job on walls, messy wires all over, wooden toilet seat that was chipped (you cannot sterilize wood), curtains don't shut fully, blinds didn't fit the window, sink was filthy, there was no tap on the shower...Not sure how you are meant to use...

Firstly, we didn't stay here. We left after less than 5 minutes. Let me explain why. As we walked into the office, the manager(?) was obviously making 'happy time' with himself. He politely stopped as myself and my girlfriend entered. Seemed like a quiet day, so we let him off. $40 a night? Cash only. Fair enough. Not the cheapest...

We arrived here after a hard day riding. The first room was stinking of smoke, dusty, dirty, dated and the towels were used and still wet. I asked manager for a better room and said "his housekeeper must have smoked too much weed that day"???? He kindly gave us the VIP room, which has a hot tub in it (its...

Food crumbs and pubes in the bed, room smelled like rottent ashtray, one dirty towel, dirty floors, ac not working right, stains on walls. People arguing at all hours of the night. This place should be condemned. Worst of the worst. Probably got some...
