I did not stay in this dump, my friends had actually reserved it for themselves and said that it was so horrible we had to see it for laughs (and, boy, did we laugh!) the smoke alarm was unwired from the ceiling (exposed wires), the wallpaper was peeling, the deep red carpet was filthy, and there was an ominous, single...

This place is the most disgusting heap I've ever seen/smelled, let alone stayed at. I would have left directly after walking into the room if I hadn't been so tired to the point of feeling like I could fall asleep at the wheel. (This place is indeed better than risking a serious auto accident or death.) We literally considered sleeping...

Let me begin by saying you REALLY don't want to touch the floors with your bare feet!! The wall has mold on it from the 1970s "a/c" unit that is leaking water inside the room. There is virtually no lighting in the room whether it's because the light just doesn't work or the bulbs are so dim that my phone...

The most VILE and DISTURBING; on several levels; I will explain and analyze, this petri-dish of grotesque INEPT (puke) will receive My 101 percent devotion in this review. After a short time, I decided, to make this (unnecessary) visit* a ALL ABOUT a 'forensic ' discovery. (*) = I was in the immediate area, visiting Dead Family-members, at Fairhaven Cemetery,...

Ick. This place was gross. I needed a place in a hurry and the location and price seemed good. Unfortunately I hadn't taken the time to read other Tripadvisor reviews or I would have chosen elsewhere. The room looks like it was last updated in 1989. The towels are paper-thin, there were bugs in the sink, and there were cigarette...

I stayed here Dec. 14, through Dec. 17 2008. The location of the hotel was good for us, as we had business in the area. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone, if you must stay at the hotel, check out the room, and make sure all the facilities are in working order. I would not stay there again....

I had the misfortune of staying in this so-called "hotel" during a trade show in March, when everything else was full. The surly receptionist said he would take care of my bag which had been delayed on the flight and was being delivered later. Despite this, he later refused to accept the bag from the delivery driver, which led to...
