    We couldn't have made a better choice of location and services then The Sam. Everything went off beautifully and everyone had great things to say about the venue. Can't think of anything to complain about!!

    I'm interested to know about the cleanliness of hotel as well as safety of surroundings as I have just read several less than glowing reviews on Google relating to cleanliness, staff issues, smells, soup kitchens and overrun area with less than desirable conditions/individuals. While all reviews and experiences are subjective...I have concerns and would like any feedback from recent guests if possible.
