4/10 Fair

The pictures do not reflect reality
The room smelled like cigarettes, there were tiny cockroaches in the bathroom. The room is minimalist at best. It's not an enjoyable experience

The toilet was broken the whole time so we’d have to reach inside the upper decker to let it flow. There were stains everywhere and the whole time we were trying to fix the toilet the front desk was closed.

Mediocre rooms with less than mediocre service.
Front desk assistant was less than helpful or gracious. Refused to let me leave my bag for a short while behind the desk, even hostels allow this to occur. Entering my room I found a “brown substance” leading from the bed to the bathroom, that I had to clean up myself. My room was cleaned the first night, however my door was then left wide open for anyone to come into my room. It was open for a minimum of 4 hours based off when cleaning was finished and I returned. When I alerted the office staff member of this, he simply said “sorry” and stared on. The room had broken curtains, bathroom shelf, mold on door frames, and a broken shower head.

Dirty and spotted multiple cockroaches.
This hotel is not as advertised. The photos are not what the hotel looks like. The place is dirty. There were cockroaches, holes in the sheets, stained curtains, a hole in the wall, the bathroom window screen was busted out and the window was open. We ended up staying for 20 minutes and then booked a different hotel because we felt disgusting and unsafe because the room was not taken care of and not as advertised.

Great area is the best highlight. The rooms are very small. Happen to find a small roach in the bathroom & the TV came with no remote. Better options for the rate
