2/10 Poor

Horrible stay
I got some shoes and freaking crock charms stolen while I was out, I went to complain and they told me they couldn’t do anything. Which I understand but the fact that someone was able to go into my room while I wasn’t there made me totally uncomfortable and I didn’t even get a sorry. Horrible service
Paola, 1-night trip with friends
Verified Hotels.com guest review

4/10 Fair

Great location very convenient but there's a homeless camp across the street and I think this property is the over flow for that. Which would explain why the floors were filthy, mold and gnats resided in the bath area; and the sink was clogged by old dirty needles and needle caps. The blankets were full of holes and the mattress was filthy. If you need to stay long extended time they charge 400 cash deposit which is ridicules for this residence and the final reason for my move.
