4/10 Fair

Disappointing, hotel needs some tlc
The check in was great, but the room itself was grossly disappointing. I highly recommend asking for an upstairs room if you can, hopefully they are way better than the room I stayed in. I admit, I was warned they were a pet friendly hotel and I should have understood that meant the first floor room I requested would not be that great. It was easier for me to not take the stairs with my kids and luggage, so I figured the one night wouldn't be a big deal. The good things include : the temperature of the room was nice, beds appeared to be clean. The bad news : room was definitely not cleaned properly. There were used towels in the shower and used soap in the shower. There were socks from the previous person under the desk. There were not enough plugs. I had to unplug the tv to use the microwave and the tv only had one channel, pbs. The dresser drawer was off kilter, I don't know if it was broken or if someone just put it back in incorrectly. In either case, I didn't have to use it and didn't touch it. But it added to the sad ambiance.

8/10 Very good

Stay was actually pretty good. Reception was efficient and friendly. Building was clean, room was clean. Breakfast was decent. One issue that we had was the shower and and shower curtain. The shower caulking had mold and is required to be removed and replaced. The grout in the shower needed to be cleaned properly to remove dirt/mold. The shower curtain needs to be removed and cleaned or replaced - dirty/mold. Other than the shower, overall the stay was nice.

2/10 Poor

Terrible experience. Dirty and sketchy. There was stains everywhere, there was a huge gap under the door so we could hear everyone in the hallway, making noise in the middle of the night. We could also hear the neighboring room. The bathroom was dirty, pubic hair in the bathtub and on the towel hanger. The AC was making a lot of noise and it went on and off all night. Woke us up several times. Terrible experience...

Save your money
Upon our arrival we could tell first off that this hotel is in a rough neighbourhood. The hotel itself lacks any appeal. Dingy and drab. We checked-in and were told if anything was not satisfactory, we should let the lady at the front desk know. I knew it was preparing is for the worst but had no idea what we'd discover. When we entered the hallway where our room was located we were smacked in the face with the overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke. Turns out, the tenant next door, yes I said tenant as I believe this place is rented out monthly to some. I mentioned the smoking to the front desk and it seemed to disapate but was still nasty smelling. The tenant on the other side had a cat and dog in their room which you could also smell upon entering the hallway. The room itself was decent, a bit musty and outdated but tolerable. All in all this place is very lack luster and should not cost what I paid to stay the night. I would have expected more for the price! At the very least a room away from the tenants who treat the place like a dump.

Just so so
When I got there, no one was at the desk and there was no bell-- just a sign that said they were out and would be back. I waited and wondered how long. Then a very pleasant clerk came out and served me. The hotel itself was rather worn. The room seemed clean enough, but smelled of dog. It also had an annoying heater-- it was way too hot and my friend and I could not figure out how to regulate it. I tried to call for room service to ask about the heater, but the phone was completely inserviceable. The push buttons would not push and it was obviously impossible to use. We left and came back later to the sweltering heat. Finally, we saw that there as a little knob on the side of the right side of the baseboard heater that we had to turn until it felt right (No thermostat!). We had booked for two nights, and on the second night, they reprogrammed the lock on our door so that when we tried to go in, our cards would not work. We had to go to the desk and get them reprogrammed. Not convenient and doesn't make sense. The parking lot had a lot of people loitering at all hours. At one time, there was a group of two over here and three over there and another two at another place-- not hotel guests, just people hanging out in the parking lot. No issues with them though, but it might not be a place I'd want my wife to go by herself. But hey, the beds were comfortable and we got a good night's sleep.
