    BEDBUGS. Need I say more? No, not really. But I will: Just like you, Weary of this place thanks to the numerous reviews posted along the net, how absolutely filthy this “business” is. It wasn’t my first choice, believe you me, but with finances real tight, being it towards the end of the month, I had a choice between this...

    so, I have now been here almost two weeks. Here is EXACTLY what I have gone through. The first night I was here, I was sleeping and my bed fell through the floor.

    If you're idea of a temporary place to stay is the Westin or Oakwood Corporate Suites, do not go here. This is $29 bucks a week walk in - no reservations, no cheery staff ( would you be at these prices?) and bare bones sleep & shower place (shared bathrooms). They used to allow people with dogs i don't know...

    I was greeted quickly and professionally. Invited to inspect my room first. Beautiful tile at the entry way. Requires a deposit. Very inexpensive. No private bathrooms, may have to wait. No parking available-street parking only. Can't beat the price, nice t.v., free HBO, fridge and microwave, dresser. All the bare essentials. quiet and private. nothing fancy. Drugstore right around the...

    Centrally located in Hillcrest, very affordable, professional and friendly staff, secured access for safety, clean, and friendly. My stay was a wonderful and enriching experience. Small rooms but they provide the essentials.
