Room is great! Just no frig or microwave, nor breakfast! Which won't upset me, getting tired of waffles, yogurt, coffee, the standard motel quick breakfast. Otherwise the room is clean and comfy. For the price, it's perfect. You can tell it used to be a very rich, classy place. For a big city hotel the amenities are slim. They did...

Bugs in my refrigerator and shower. Found dirty items behind night stand. Cleaning crew did nothing but throw bedding back on bed and empty garbage. Mold and dirt everywhere. The bartenders were pathetic. Not service oriented at all along with the front desk. Just all around horrible and couldn't leave as no other hotels open that weekend unfortunately.

The room, while generally clean in appearance, but was somewhat run down. Carpet had multiple stains/gum residue and the sink drained extremely slow. We were in town for a wedding and the hotel was close to the church and reception, which was nice.

I was very concerned about staying here based on the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised - very clean rooms including the bathrooms, clean & comfortable bed. Nice towels clean and decent size &...

My fiance I stayed her for a night to go see a concert at a local bar. When we got there it seem like a normal hotel; a little outdated but no big deal. We checked in, went upstairs get in our room and the only ceiling light except the bathroom doesn't work...ok. That's dumb but liveable, so we try...
