Good 6.0
Good for the price and neighborhood
Well lit and service was fast and friendly. For the price and neighborhood, we were pleasantly surprised. Not a wonderful room but, for the rate and place, it was appropriate.

Poor 2.0
Upon arrival the bathroom was not cleaned, room smelt of cleaning products but none where used, floors where filthy, bedding is not washed properly and still has bodily fluids on it. Door to room did not latch properly keeping it locked. Disgusting

Good Enough for my plan
No elevator, my room was 3rd floor, so if you are in a shopping plan it is going to be hard

Good 6.0
Not a horrible stay
The room wasn’t the greatest but we were only sleeping there and it was 1 night. The tub was stained pretty good, there were hairs on the toilet. The beds were hard and the comforter was stained, but like I said, one night. At about 6:30 AM I was woke up by blaring music that was still blaring when we left at 10:30. The overall look of the place is pretty nice and the location is AWESOME! I might be ok with staying here again as long as I can get a room away from the laundry room where the music was coming from.
