Prostitute's & homeless wandering parking lot at all hours. Hotel insisted on keeping side doors propped open all night. Lots of people walking in and out that were not... More

It's in a bad neighborhood! No air conditioning and bullet proof glass on front desk. After 10 minutes of boyfriend's license, and after he had to ask for it back, they said no refund : it had to be over 24 hrs! We booked on Priceline and they said we had to go through their sister company booking.com. We could... More

WOW....where to start. We booked to attend a conference in downtown. Pictures looked nice so why not try it? Total scam. This place is a dump! It is dingy and seems unchanged since 1980s crack cocaine days. Run down looking and glassed in front desk. In its day was probably great place to be, but today.....Hell No!!! Pay by the... More

The pool they advertise has not been open all season. The Continental breakfast was knock off Sunny D, and a powdered coffee machine. That's it! The lobby was not air conditioned, so the units in all 3 of our rooms couldn't keep up, for the end of July. The jacuzzi tub was icky, so we only used it to soak... More

The building is run down and had broken glass in the parking lot that obviously came from a car window. Upon entering the hotel we were welcomed by the smell of mold there wasn't anyone sitting behind the wall of bullet proof glass at the front desk. Our room was gross, we got the hot tub room and it had... More
