After a long drive from Los Angeles, and in need of a goodnight's rest, I got stuck with a room that just fell apart on me. I walked in the room that masked a faint scent of mold. I tried to slide open the windows that had a lock and only opened two inches wide. I took a shower and went out for dinner just to find out that the odor of mold got worse and the small opening from the window did not help airing out the room. I then realized that not only the thermostat to blow air out of the room was broken, but the bathrooms vent fan did not work either possibly causing the mold in the room! I spoke to the night clerk wanting to change to another room since I'm staying here for two days. He wanted to make sure that the room did smell like mold prior to allowing me to change to another room, so I told him to come upstairs. I moved next door just to find out that the non-smoking room I got smells like someone smoked in it. The bed was hard and squeaked every time I moved and the worse part was my room faced the major street and it felt like you were living in a third world country. The noise pollution from passing vehicles resonated in the bedroom even though you had the windows closed. It was bad. On the other hand, the lady in the kitchen during breakfast was nice as well as the cleaning lady. I agree with one's review of the place in need of updating and better ventilation system.
