Clean and Affordable
Based on the low price for the area and the run-down exterior, I was expecting a dirty, broken room; however, I was very surprised how clean the room was. Fairly new carpet, clean walls and floors, decent bathroom and shower, working fridge and microwave.

Cleaning is impeccable and everyone is nice. In the process of getting better. Easy to find and close to many stores and restaurants. The beds a little uncomfortable but the rooms are huge and has all the amenities you need when staying in a hotel

Poor 2.0
Horrible hotel. Not heated, you better bring your own heater. If you are on the first floor holes in bathroom windows will make you visible from outside especially in the evening, and you cannot completely close them!!
John, us14 night business trip
Poor 2.0
The room was very cheap and I can see why... very ghetto looking, inside and outside, the bathtub was peeling off they definitely need to be remodeled, I wouldn’t stay there again
Karen, us5 night family trip
Fair 4.0
The staff was excellent. But there were too many little things that got in the way, and I shouldn't have to deal with. The key didn't work, and got stuck in the door. The bathroom was DIRTY. Mold in the shower, something was leaking on the bathroom floor, and made it very slippery. I will not go back.
