The property is a ghetto. I was nervous even sleeping in the bed. The entire place is absolutely filthy, with little security to your room. Never again will I stay here. I wouldn't even recommend it to my enemies.

Dirty, poorly maintained
Room was absolutely tiny first of all. Sheets were stained, towels had holes in them. The kitchen was very disappointing, some equipment didn't work at all, some was just extremely worn down. The street outside had some homeless people shouting all evening, and the parking lot had some non-guests occupy spaces. Our key couldn't open the kitchen, so we had to ask the receptionist to open it for us, so we were pretty disappointed when the reception didnt open until 35 minutes after it was supposed to in the morning: it meant that we were locked out of the kitchen with no way of getting to our breakfast foods, which were laying in thr fridge in there.

Bathroom and bedsheets were clean, but the carpet has seen better days. The location is close to the central business area, but for some reason there are a lot of loud homeless people across the street. You don’t really seem to see this in the rest of the area, just this particular block. Front desk personnel was very nice and easy late check-in and checkout.
