10/10 Exceptional

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We got in pretty late and really appreciated the friendly greeting. We had reserved a room with one double bed and were upgraded to a king bed. The room was huge with a walkin closet - I wish our bedroom at home was this big. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The place was clean. Though the water pressure was low, the water was nice and hot. I'll take hot water over low pressure any day. The bathroom door would not shut fully. It looked like there had been a water leak upstairs with a stain on the ceiling and some peeling wallpaper. Neither of those had an impact on the functionality of the room. We were happy with the stay and would gladly stay again.

2/10 Poor

Weird and sketchy
Okay lol where to start me and my friend went there for a convention where we were hosting something for we literally only needed the room to get ready, leave and come back and sleep and leave again we got there the guy at the front was threatening me, we got to the room and it was the wrong room we had payed for, then once we got back there was these strange calls about someone being in the room that wasn’t in the room and being someone with PTSD it made my paranoia really bad and felt very unsafe not to mention the bathroom windows don’t lock and we were on the first floor, at around 4:30am we were woken up by whoever was staying in the room next to us blaring music from their car this went on for about an hour wasn’t able to fall back asleep :/ Conditions Oh boy to the wall paper falling off the walls to the mold in the bathroom and the door in the bathroom also wasn’t able to close all the way I mean there was cable and an ac that’s all my positive towards it though but yeaah no don’t think I’ll be returning

2/10 Poor

Worst place I have ever stayed in. Rooms were dirty, ceiling paint was chipping off right above our bed. Found clothes from the people that had stayed there prior. We can hear people talking from there own home through the bathroom window. Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy!!!
