2/10 Poor

Very disappointed for a 1 night stay.
There were ants in the bathroom, broken sink stopper, exhaust fan did not work. Disgustingly stained curtains and spotted stained headboard. The Directv did not have reception. Overall room smell. Very disappointed for 163$ 1 night stay.

My worse experience
It was a terrible experience… my room was on the first floor. The walls were covered with nose pickings and other dirt. Furnitures was old and rotted. The staff were not friendly, checking in was a hassle for them. Will never go back.

2/10 Poor

I was extremely dissappointed considering I have stayed here for before, which is why I booked again. The prices went up $40 a night higher from last time. With the price I paid per night I could have stayed in the city. I had issues checking in. They said I booked two rooms, I only booked one room and had my confirmation, but it was still and issue. The parking lot was full, barely any parking each night. The water pressure in the shower was so high it was painful. We stayed on the ground floor, the people who stayed above us were so loud both nights of all hours from 11am-7am walking around and being loud. We let the front desk know so they could ask them to keep it down and I dont believe they did anything because they were still extremely loud the rest of the night and morning and next night. This hotel is supposed to be pet friendly but the door to their patio area locks no mater what hour of the day so you have to walk all the way around the building in order to go back in, and the patio/potty area is closed off at an early hour. If you have a pet you know their last potty time is not at 7pm. I wouldn't waste your money here.

6/10 Good

Closeness to the airport is its main appeal. Otherwise I don’t think I’d recommend it. Looks well worn despite claim of recent renovation. Elevator was concerning. Room is small and very noisy with street traffic and outside noise. Bathroom ceiling and walls have mold. If we weren’t exhausted from travel, I don’t know if we would have stayed.
