2/10 Poor

Old, dirty, disrepair
This hotel is truly disgusting! The wall to wall rug was stained & smelt like mold, there was spackle in several areas of ceiling &!walls that were not painted, the bathroom was so bad that I did not feel comfortable standing in bare feet. The windows were dirty,falling apart & they wedged a piece of wood and a rock so they could not be openned. It’s a run down, old dilapidated hotel that should not have available on their site!
Dirty & broken window lock on 1st  floor windows, they use a wood stick & stone to wedge the window closed
Spackle on bathroom ceiling
Spackle & dirt around room door area
Duct tape connecting the stained rug to the sill of bathroom

2/10 Poor

The stuff of nightmares.
So disgusting we did not even sit on any of the stained furniture or take our shoes off on the sticky carpet. Check in is through a section 8 housing style hole in a wall with security glass with no speaker to hear the lady behind it. One room had its door open to show the clean room you see on the pictures, but it is not used. Stained black marks on all bedding. Body fluid stains on all furniture. Fridge plugged in but non working. Black mold in shower and all around the upper walls. Left within 10 minutes after securing another room just minutes away but a 1000 times safer cleaner and actually quite luxurious for about the same price. The Aluxor, turned a nightmare into a very pleasant evening.
Who knows, you decide.
They thought I would sleep in this.
I loved Ghostbusters

Don't Expect Too Much/Decent Stay+Safe Feeling
The title pretty much sums up this entire hotel/motel. It's an OK stay. TLDR; Don't expect too much, this is a no frills hotel/motel. It's semi-small, semi-clean, no continental breakfast (its small brown bags w/ granola bar, apple, cheese danish), no daily house cleaning, and apparently no front desk? lol... Me and my girlfriend stayed here after comparing some relatively similar price ranged hotels and this one "won." It only really won because it SEEMED like it had everything else all the other hotels had. We thought it would have a continental breakfast and daily house keeping..all of which it did not have. So here's the breakdown.. Namely the continental did not have that, it only had bags of an apple, danish, and granola bar. Better than nothing, but still something to note. Front Lobby, has no real front desk. For my duration we stayed 3 nights, of those 3 nights I never saw the front desk. Night upon arrival, called the number posted at the front since no one was there and I find out our room key just sitting out in the open on the window sill next to the front door (which is locked no one there), check desk and they say just leave the key there? No house keeping at all within those 3 nights of stay. Nothing more to elaborate. The room was clean-ish...if you expect super clean don't stay. It had dust/rubbish under the bed, tables, desk. Walls definitely needed TLC. Bathroom, the light kept turning off every 5 Feels Safe
Overall layout of the room. At first sight it's not a bad stay. Cozy and feels safe.
That's a sugar bag stuffed in the safe, coffee machine in room was broke.
A lot of the walls, corners, nooks and crannies will look like this. Those easily grossed..don't recommend staying.
Someone drew this design/pattern on the lamp shade of both lol..was kinda funny to see after a long day!

You could do better. Overpriced.
The air conditioner did not work. And the room had a sort of smell to it. There was no breakfast. Also, I ended up paying an extra $50 to check out late. I would not recommend this hotel there are a lot of other hotels in that area that are much more accommodating.

Though we didn't use it, the interior courtyard pictured was a nice feature. Loved the parking included. Only issue was lack of blanket for the pull out sofa bed. The phone didn't work, so I walked down to the front desk to ask for a blanket, and was promised one in "10 minutes," but it was never brought to us. The following night, I asked again and the woman at the front desk was extremely apologetic, and brought one directly to our room.

We scheduled the room. Got to facility and no one was at desk or lobby. It was locked. Waited for an hour and rang doorbell 25 times. Called phone numbers listed and no one answered. After standing out in cold for an hour we went to another facility
