Nobody at front desk. Did not even get out of the car. Unsafe and dangerous. Place looked like falling apart. Just left to another hotel.

Disgusting. Stuff splattered on the walls, smells like marijuana (in a non smoking room), no soap, dirty pillows and dirty bed. Not worth the price at all.

Bottom of the barrel for sure.

This place was a joke. 1 channel on tv. Only one small light bulb for the room. Noise all night. Place was a mess.I slept in better places during my 2nd tour of duty in Vietnam. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. One bright spot was the lady that checked me in.She was funny.
