Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else, anywhere else !!! Horrible, old, smelly, broken hotel. Rooms are a disgrace. Broken lights, broken furniture, missing furniture, broken doors, unlit hallways +++. Owner, manager & clerks will lie to you & change their story 5 times in 5 minutes. Even if it was free it would be overpriced !!! We had...

The entire hotel to include the rooms smelt like an ashtray. The 1st room I stayed had drawers that would fall out and generally looked dirty. Earwigs and flies were present in the bathroom and shower. The toilet flushed only once and after inspection the management attempted to move me to two other rooms--the keys they gave me didn't work....

Fast internet, amazing staff, clean rooms, conformable beds and awesome tvs. This place is certainly worth it. You can tell the second you walk in that it is unique. I really don’t understand why there is so many negative reviews.
