    I loved this place. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I ended up getting upgraded to a room (#9) on the second floor and found it to be full of charm - beautiful old floorboards, a lemon tree in the courtyard, a quirky...More

    Everything already written before this sums this place up. It looks like a wino hotel. Filthy, stained furniture, no staff anywhere. There were dirty towels on the floor, the bedspread is foul, linens questionable.

    This is by far one of the worst hotels that I have EVER stayed at. Had holes to the outside walls, dirty and stained upholstery and carpets and peeling paint over the gas range. I would definitely discourage ANYBODY from staying there unless financially restricted....More

    No heat, no hot water, terrible traffic noise. Terrible place. Worst hotel I've ever been in! I've been in 90 countries. 49 states never been in ANY hotel near this bad. A really terrible place. Terrible is a kind word in this case.
