We were tired after a 6 days road trip, and looking for a pet friendly place we found this crap online, as soon as we got in the room we were ready to leave, bugs, horrible smell, junkies, they charged $100 dlls, then the Roxy Foxy lady told Us to hide our dog from her boss even if we paid...

This place is barely habitable. I spent four days here courtesy of Legacy Emanuel Hospital after a five-day stay for pneumonia and because the social worker did not want me to return to a homeless shelter as my immune system is compromised. The bedding had not been changed and I had to wait over two hours for pillowcases. The pillows...

This place is a complete dive. My husband and I were paying weekly rates. Management calls a week 6 days so they can make more money off you. We were all paid up and i wanted to move to a room with an operating heater and she refused to move us because she claimed it would be too much trouble....

I usually don't leave reviews at all but in this case, I would feel guilty not saying anything about this place and letting people go there. It's filthy, the manager is borderline rude. We booked 2 bunk beds, and arrived at 5pm. The beds were not ready, and Roxy the manager told us they were getting painted. We asked her...

First of all, I had to call a total of seven times in order to get anyone on the line. After the first three times, the "manager" answered but stated she did not have booking in front of her and to call back in 30 minutes. So I did, another three times before an answer. She STILL wasn't ready with...

We stopped to check the place out in the middle of the day, thank god. Can't imagine what goes on under cover of darkness. The looks on the faces of the various characters lining the railing of the upper level walkway as they scoped us out as we pulled into the central courtyard said all very clearly, anything left in...

This hotel is making out of 35 units total there per room $2500 a month. You have to be rich to go to this hotel. The telephones have been all ripped out of the walls and there is no houskeeping service and there is excrement in all the bathrooms. It was built in the 20s or the 30's. My friend...
