    Keep away. Full of undesirables, filthy dirty and needs pulling down. I would not return to this hotel if it was the last one available. We did not feel safe, even in our room.Everything smelt of smoke in the bedroom and the bedding and mattress...More

    This place is full of what appear to be longterm residents, most appear to be living on SSI / disability, who actually live in this disgusting place. There isn't much else to say, other than, DO NOT STAY HERE.
