The hotel is located in a main road so it's good if you are driving. Be aware that parking is around 10$ per day with some fast food restaurants around. Staff were nice in the reception. The room is very dated, the chair was ripped and so was the curtain which didn't gave us a good impression even though the...

I was impressed at how clean my rooms were and the excellent geographical location of hotel. Very quiet noise level in room and comfortable bed.

The hotel was dirty, there was a charge for parking, it smelled awful, our AC was useless, and I would not stay here again. In fact, they even have additional furniture for the rooms sitting in a parking garage. Wouldn't want those in a room. While we didn't personally experience it, wouldn't be surprised if there are bed bugs in...

Dirty and dated. The bed was rock hard and the pillows flat. Parking was tight. They offered a lot as well as underground parking, but if you came in late, you were out of luck and left to find street parking. The hotel charges extra for a fridge (and assuming microwaves also). The towels were itty bitty tiny (I am...

The front desk was nice, all downhill from there. The room looked bad, thankful we arrived at midnight and left early AM. Got a pretty good deal on Hotwire, still not worth the price. This was once a Quality Inn, so maybe wasn't bad at one time. Now needs a deep cleaning and a makeover. The parking lot is small,...
