HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed in this hotel recently. The location is good as at a walking distance you can get all groceries and restaurants. Big stores like Target are also at walking distance. Bit far from city and the university. The property is good, rooms are nice and clean with small kitchenettes. Cook your own food and enjoy the surroundings. However, if...

The place is clean and roomy, but the reservation system is not well implemented. While i stayed here i saw a woman trying to check in at 8:45 PM only to find out the rooms were given away. The price i was charged was different from that which i was quoted.

Do. Not. Stay. Here. This is a filthy place. House keeping left my door open ALL day. The guests here make you feel unsafe. Rooms smell and are not clean. I couldn't even take my shoes off to walk around the entire time I was there. I got a refund and checked in somewhere else after only a few days....

Concern grows at check-in when you are asked to pay a USD 100 deposit 'in case you damage the room.' There is a warning about ongoing renovations. The room was absolutely disgusting...only partially cleaned, with bags of soiled towels and garbage lurking in corners, cupboards, and on the doorstep...thick greasy dust lining the cupboards....dirty and cracked tiles in the shower...and...

This is not a very good property!! Rooms are aged, smell funny, paint peeling, bathrooms a mess and overall beat up. Bed was marginal at best. Patrons next door decided to have a 15 cuss out conversation outside my room. I had to politely ask them to move on. Hotel in a suspect area. Front desk personnel was very helpful...

“As to see the room first, to assess its state of disrepair and whether or not it has been cleaned.”
  • Flithy cracked tiles in the shower.
  • Faucet missing components, creating a well of slime.
  • Most buttons missing from the telephone...bizarre!
  • Bag of trash and soiled towels greets me on arrival in my room.
