Avoid this place like the plague. It's disgusting and we found bedbugs. The customer service is a joke. They could care less that we found bed bugs. The carpet is disgusting and you can't breath because of the smell of mildew. Avoid this place like the plague.

Not as bad, but worse! I booked through Hotwire, and I will be hard-pressed to ever forgive them for sending me blindly to a place such as this! They promised a 2 Star, and this was simply not fit for human habitation. Hotwire should be ashamed. How can I evert trust them in the future after THEY put me and...

I an not very picky about hotels since I know I will only be using the room to sleep and shower. This one takes the cake! The absolute worst I have seen.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS HORRIBLE PLACE. What a horrible,disgusting, truly terrible place. There were bed bugs and when we complained they accused us of lying and trying to get a free room. They wouldn't apologise or refund us. This place should be shut down. The staff are horrible, the rooms are horrible and management obviously has no standards.

Get the idea when the Guest Service employees and manager says they would "Never stay here!" We didn't stay even after 2 room changes in an hour. Definitely a "by the hour" place for pros. Enough said.

Should always check reviews before booking hotel on-line. the clue should have been the armed police officer in reception, or maybe the bed bugs crawling in the bed, or the splinted door jamb that didn't secure the door or the broken blinds, heaters, lights, floor tiles, to the stink of mould, to the unsavory people hanging around, to the smell...

Stayed here in August 2011. Next day, discovered some bed bug bites. Went to dr. on day three, confirmed it was bed bugs. I ended up with over 110 bites, and on day 5, my wife had a few less, but hers itched more. We had not stayed anywhere else but home for three-4 weeks prior to this. Hotel was...
