2/10 Poor

Bad experience not as advertised .
The worst customer service experience with lady that we emcountered in to after a long drive late night. She was so unprofessional and insulting in many ways . And told us to leave the premises when we asked about there policies. Because that was never mentioned on the site on anywhere that you cant have three guests in a double bed room . I have been booking with for a while now and never had a worst experience ever? Even if we were willing to understand the situation the lady kept disrespecting us and attempeted to scare us off by saying " i am calling the police" as if were criminals that we would budge. Over all i dont recommend for any one one to saty in this hotel. I am still puzzled how the state still haven't revoked their licenses.

Ok but would not recommend or stay there again
This place was pretty run down and not in a great area . Though the room itself was pretty clean it was below average in terms of updates. It appeared this property might have been a long term resident for veterans. I was concerned for safety and requested a second floor room and was concerned about my car in the parking lot. There were no issues but I would not recommend this for a business or family traveler or a single traveler. There was nothing around the property in terms of restaurants or stores. I was glad I bought a salad at the airport and had that for dinner

6/10 Good

Got to the place and was a little scared to go in. Not the greatest. Looks like doing remodeling. No heat in halls and no elevator. But had room 36 with king bed. Room was very comfortable. We were on the side of the building so the sound of the commuter trains didn't bother us. Convenient right next to VA. Room was very clean.

Easy to check in and drop my key at the end of my stay, clean, spacious, secure, and incredibly well located by a light rail station just two stops from the airport.
