Close to the Oldport, cheap. Messy room, corked pictures on the wall, filthy bathroom grout, holes in walls, missing fixtures, broken phone and remote, old shower, hairs on sheets. If you don’t care about ANYTHING but a place to sleep and you’re okay with a few hairs in your bed, this place is for you. It’s old and dilapidated, I won’t be back. The price was right, probably the only thing that was right.

This is a $69 dollar hotel it is not something that can be sold for $150 per night, which is what I paid. Changing the price doesn't make the the place a better place.

It was close to airport and affordable. We arrived very late and the airport shuttle was timely and our driver/check in person actually carried our very heavy suitcase up to our room. The room was clean but did smell of stale cigarette smoke. We had a quick and easy checkout.

The check-in experience was one of the best I've had in my travels; the gentleman at the desk was marvelous to me. It is easy, affordable and convenient during delayed travel

I like the rate. The basic necessities were there. I did not like that the sheets were soft and rumpled. I couldn't tell if they were just older and not ironed, or used.

Our check in was quick with no greeting. Also the room was very dirty! The bathroom floor had human hair as well as the toilet. The doors had stains on them, ie: bathroom and inside of front door. We were almost given a single bed room even though I specified a double room in my reservation.
