My wife and I recently spent the night at this hotel after losing the Hotwire lottery. Supposedly they had this classified as a 2 star, 85% recommended hotel. I find that very hard to believe. 1 star would be 3 stars too many for this place. The location is pure ghetto, parking is a joke for anything larger than a compact car, the rooms are tiny and smell terrible, assuming you have the good luck to not get offered a smoking or smoking room. The staff is nice enough if you can get past the language barrier. Oh, did I mention your new, 6 legged roommates? No? How could I forget?
When I checked in, against my better judgement, I looked around for insects but didn't see anything obvious. When I woke up in the morning, there was a small roach on the floorboard by the foot of the bed. Gross, but I was on my way out the door, so whatever. By the way, you know it's bad when a roach has become just "whatever". It got worse when my wife went to shower and found a fully engorged bedbug in her pajamas and 3 welts on her leg. We killed them both (You're welcome Royal Inn Motel), but had to make sure to quarantine our luggage when we got home so we could wash everything to avoid an infestation of our home.
Don't stay here. Just don't. It isn't worth it. Yes, it was inexpensive, sort of. Another 20 bucks and we could have been in a far nicer place. No one should have to pay to go through this.
