Horrible... doesn’t look safe.

3/5 Okay

Business traveller, Travelled with group
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Staff was nice but beware, this is not a pleasant area. Freeway is right across from the hotel. Saw someone break a car window in the street and heard a few gunshots at night. The hotel is tucked away a little but beware, you are 1/2 block from the ghetto. We ordered Postmates and they stole our food twice, hotel has an ice machine but it didn’t work. Room was small and beds/bathroom was clean but walls were really dirty. Was OK for a few hours for the price but probably won’t be back
