The shower has a continuous slow drip that should be repaired. Room came with iron, hair dryer, small refrigerator, TV, WIFI, breakfast. We were charged $1.50 per day for...

Luckily we only stayed one night. The location was at a corner next to a freeway off ramp. Between the noises from the freeway and the AC unit, it was rough. The walls are very thin also & can hear noises from other rooms. The TV did not work. I called to have it fixed but to no avail.The entire...

One of the best front desk managers I have ever seen, Nathalie, was outstanding, I would stay there again, because of her efforts. Because we work very early in the morning we need sometimes to check before 2:00 pm, we find hotels that don't let you check before that time that have rooms ready, that's dumb. If it's ready check...

Room not really clean, bathroom really NOT clean...the tile on the floor disgusting. Toilet Paper was the lowest quality I have ever seen. Towels were rough, small, and only two. Would...
