I asked for a cot and management led me to the back of a boiler room and had me drag it out myself. Party atmosphere on the first floor after dark. Lots of people sitting on the curb out front drinking 40 oz bottles of malt liquor. Everything about this place felt cheap and second-rate-- including the hooker I met...

My husband and I stayed here for a week while visiting MB. The pricing and location were the best things. Its super close to the outlets and maybe 10 min from Broadway at the Beach. The staff was nice for the most part. The room definitely needs upgrading. The bathroom needs to be remodeled, the beds are really hard and...

One gets what one pays for. Clean sheets, but a big watermark and a really gross washcloth in an otherwise empty drawer; a wall A/C unit that groaned and struggled; no coffee in the room (!!?!); chipped silver paint on bathroom fixtures suggesting that they're not even stainless; weird gross sticky pink junk on floor and furniture. Thin walls, too,...

I booked a room at City Studios Inn & Suites on July 14, 2016. I arrived that afternoon, checked in and went to the room. We turned on the AC then left to get dinner. When we returned, we first noticed that the hallways were just full of people, teenagers running and screaming all over, even climbing the walls like...

I stayed one night and typically when it's such a short visit I am VERY open minded. Going off of reviews, rating and location, I didn't really have big expectations but this place sucked. I paid $75 for one night, they double charged my card (the day I booked my room and then again when I arrived, the lady at...

I stayed at this establishment last week with my family. From first site of the lobby you think it's a beautiful establishment. Once you venture around the corner to the old carpet and out dated paint and fixtures you realize it's quite something else. Upon entering my room I realized it wasn't one of the newly renovated rooms they expressed...

Stayed here for three nights only because it was a holiday weekend and everything was sold out elsewhere. There was mold growing in the bathroom, tiles literally falling off the walls onto the floor, NO water pressure for showering and the WORST shower head I have ever seen. Almost no water came out at all. Not a good place...although the...

“See the room before paying. They charged the "deluxe" price for two different rooms in our group. Race car track right behind hotel so you might want to check the events scheduled for the track.”

“They did have free wifi but it was way too slow to use. Very bad hotel. No breakfast and if you walk outside to much the manager gets pissed. They let the drug addicts that live there treat guest like crap.”
