Liked: Staff & service
Nice staff and facility was as clean as you can keep an old building that kind of needs an update. The buildup of cleaning products in the carpeting creates a smell when you enter the place. The windows are dirty. Plumbing works but is strained. The location is fantastic.

2/5 Poor

Farce
No sure how this hotel passed inspection. From the pipe that looks like a dick in the shower wall sticking out and painted pink. To the holes in the tile flooring covered with metal. To the "non-smoking" room that smelled like an ash tray, and the patched work wall paper and caked on dust that coated all the cords and outlets, it was bad. You almost needed to sleep with your shoes on bc pg how dirty the floors were. The check-in lady Marisol was by far the most unhappy person we met. We checked in close to 430p and was told "I'm not sure if we have any clean rooms for you". How? At 430pm? Would not stay again. Would no recommend.
