Lots of drug and prostitution activity. Extremely dangerous environment and fifthly to boot. Lots of people walking around begging money. The owners are not friendly and I could not go anywhere else due exhaustion. I thought it can be that bad but it was..

Sketchy location. Shady characters walking around all night. Not a place for a family with kids. Pictures online do NOT match reality. Place is a dump. Non-smoking room stank of smoke. Cigarette burns on cover, furniture and on bathroom tub and sink. Do yourself a favor and find another hotel. Free wi-fi is limited, had trouble accessing

Cheap quality hotel, smells awful in the rooms, you check in through a hole in the wall next to an ice machine, the whole things just pretty sketchy. Only thing going for it is its between a couple restaurants and it's cheap, the bed was clean though.

Covers had cigarette burn marks. The rooms were very dark without much colour. The motel is located a bit behind other buildings, giving it an isolated feeling. Perhaps this is too be expected from the low prices.

Convenient location and very helpful receptionist. Last but not least, it is super cheap during the normal business days. Additionally, the downtown is super close to it so that passengers are easily to access to the bars or clubs.

This place was less than satisfactory. There were cigarette burns on every piece of furniture. The table was sticky with cup rings. The shower was dirty. The wall had blood or something that looked like blood. The toilet would run for an hour after being flushed. The freezer had something brown stuck with in the ice. Which was in need... More

If zero was an option that is what this hotel would receive. Checked in around 3pm. Our room was musty but we went out and bought an air freshener. Put it back in the room and went out for the evening. Upon our return we discovered the power in the room was out. It was now after midnight. We went... More
