    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    I just read the reviews for this place dating back the last five years...WOW! Is this place still open or has the health department shut it down? Sounds like someone needs to investigate this place and/or take it off the trip advisor's list of hotels. I've never seen such a poorly rated hotel, I don't understand how it can still be operating if all the reviews are true???
