Used mattresses stacked in the halls,filthy, crumbling bathroom and urchins apparently living there. I didn't expect much, but got even less. Air conditioner worked well. That's all I cay good about this dive.Save your money.

The front desk manager then...

Nothing extra here and they did raise there rates at race time but you will not beat the location to the track....

All the reviews posted from guests here are 100% accurate. We had urine dried on the toilet seat from a previous guest. Our bed sheets had genital and other areas of body hair left on sheet and pillow cases. The management at the hotel need to take some customer service classes as they are extremely rude and even Jay used...

This place should have been torn down years ago. There is nothing good to write. The room was filthy, stained filthy carpets, bedding was stained (I opted to sleep in my clothes on top of the bed rather than get under the sheets.

The room was filthy, the toilet was non working, holes in the wall, moldy windows and shower, dirty stained carpet, beds with stains, no hot water. I did get another hotel paid for and upgraded after explaining the ADA regulations...
