It is often that when someone experiences great customer service they don't take the time to voice it to others. I absolutely had to take a few moments to speak on my experience at the Bellwood hotel. Starting from my pleasant greeting from the front desk associate, Ms Susana She greeted me with a huge smile, answered my questions, and... More

She threw my money at me and said "go somewhere else if you want a receipt. We don't give them till you check out" I literally had to BEG her because it was... More

I've stayed at the Bellwood several times and the location is wonderful. If there are bedbugs, they are quite discreet. The rooms are dingy but not dirty and acceptable for the price. Unfortunately I recently had an experience with staff that cancels out these borderline virtues. On the night in question they only had availability at the top of their... More

Several hotels came up in the area, but all of them were between $250 and $450 for a 2 night stay. The Bellwood advised they didn't take reservations and you just had to turn up... More
