6/10 Good

Room was very small. Was pictured to have a microwave and fridge but it didnt have either. There is barely any lighting in the rooms and the curtains dont block out the bright ass light that is right outside every window all night long. I guess for the price it wasnt terrible but it deff wont get my monwy again. I should get what i was advertised

4/10 Fair

Stop spraying the sidewalk in the morning
Rooms kind of small and doesn’t have a chair to sit in. Floor was kind of dirty. I put that 4 people were staying and they only gave us 2 towels. When I went up to get more towels they said I had to exchange the other 2. My biggest problem is there is a guy who sprays the sidewalk with a hose every morning. It leaves massive puddles of water so your feet get soaking wet walking up to exchange your towels in the morning.

Last minute one-night stay
Room was perfectly fine for a one night stay - clean and comfortable. Could have used some amenities like a refrigerator in the room.

8/10 Very good

okay but disappointed.
the rooms were clean, and smelled good, but small. they did not have no where to sit but on the bed. no chairs. the conditions of reserving the room was to use a credit card to hold, and then pay at the register when you arrive was violated. they charged the whole amount on a card i was just trying to hold the room. at the counter I gave another card to actually charge the amount. they did not use that card when i was told they would. i called back to see if i could change this, and was told they would call me back. no call back, and the payment was taken out of the card i just wanted to hold the room. very disappointed with the personnel. would not recommend because of this.
