You can write a novel on the stuff that was wrong The room was so dirty you were afraid to stay in it the bathroom appeared dirty and moldy the hallways were filthy elevator in operable there was arguing at all hours of the night lots of homeless that have been making use of the hotel overall this was terrible What puzzles me the most is that a place like this was able to advertise on Travelocity’s website I should’ve been more diligent in reading the previous reviews Travelocity should be ashamed of even having this on their website

The rooms were dirty in general. We were supposedly staying in a nonsmoking room and the smell was so strong that we woke up with a smoking taste. We saw several bugs during our stay. I tried to call the from desk from the room's phone , which was full of stains with even a few shreds of cheese under the handset, but they never pick up. When talking to them in person at the front desk, they said their phone system is old and doesn't work, which is why they include their phone number in their hotel map.

Overall it was a pleasant stay. The staff was attentive, but certain things just weren't great like the pool. Over all through, room upkeep and all was fine

The property did not look anything like the pictures posted in the advertisement. The property looked like it had been abandoned and if there were homeless people living around there. There were abandoned cars in the parking lot. The security gate was left open to the parking lot. The door to enter the building was supposed to have a security card swipe mechanism to open the door and that was obviously torn off. The hall way was hot and humid and smelled of marijuana. The carpet was filthy in the stairway and there were cigarette butts on the floor. We had our A/C as low as 52 and it was still hot in the room during the middle of the night. There was a random knock on the door in the middle of the night. We found a live cockroach in the bathroom.

This hotel was so gross, didn’t look clean, surrounded by bums, people fighting all night and obviously living in the hotel with their animals when it says a no pet policy. I was disgusted and scared to leave my car there.
