The worst! But what do you expect when its $100 a night. Bathroom smelled like sewer, and noticed the toilet wasn't even fully attached to the floor, which caused it to rock side to side when you sat on it. The shower was stained. The bed and sheets smelled moldy and like cigarettes. The towels were rough and stained as well. The whole place and A/C smelled like cigars and ashes.

I was beyond disappointed with this hotel--to check in I had to just slide my ID and credit card in a slot, there was no lobby or any sort of welcome. My room smelled musty and the bathroom didn't look particularly clean but luckily I had sanitizing wipes on me. The front door had about an inch of space between the bottom of the door and the floor-- making it not only drafty, but I could hear absolutely everything that was going on. I felt terrified on multiple occasions-- both nights there were fights outside and I could hear people yelling until 3am. I considered calling someone but since there was no real front desk I didn't know who I would call to tell them I felt unsafe. The parking lot was incredibly narrow and tiny, most cars ended up taking up more than 1 space-- I have a tiny car so I was able to fit but I can't imagine anyone with a mid size or SUV being able to fit into the spaces comfortably. The sink in my bathroom was clogged and there was no hot water in the shower-- it was luke warm at best. I would stay away from this hotel unless you're in a jam and just need somewhere to sleep, though I didn't get any sleep either night I was there because I felt so unsafe with so much fighting, yelling and screeching tires happening at all hours of the night.
