I honestly don't know how this garbage dump is a thing! You get there and you're locked out had to call 6 times before someone came to answer the door to let us in! Oh and if you need to find someone that works there you might as well forget about that lmao they just disappear and are gone forever!...

My wife, 6 year old daughter and I were booked into this place for 2 nights. We stayed for only 1 and left next morning. The positives are location and the staff (if you can find them) who were certainly pleasant enough. There was hot water and the WiFi worked mostly(!) - The bad? everything else. As other shave mentioned...

For some odd reason, I went ahead with the booking through Booking.com after reading the average, mixed reviews there and at Travelocity and Expedia. I thought that the rate was reasonable, and it was only for a night. I'm glad it was only for a night. 'didn't see mice or cockroaches or bugs. There's wi-fi. It's close to the convention...

We stayed here for 2 nights last weekend. When we arrived on Friday, the front door was locked and the contact number kept going to voicemail, so we were forced to wait outside for 25 minutes before the woman let us in, even though we had rung the doorbell multiple times. It's only a small hotel and we had assumed...

I read pages of the reviews before still deciding to book this hotel. It's low cost and its amazing location I thought would be enough to make me overlook the posted issues. Plus, I've traveled in Europe before, where small, old walk-up buildings are de rigeur. I just needed a bed. Let me start off by saying that I did...

Hey everybody, the reviews I read of this hotel weren't the best in the world when I booked the room in Philadelphia but it was in south Philly, where you can visit all the historical places and you're just one walk away from the shopping area and the City Hall - Business center, which is great. The check-in was good...

The bathroom has molds all over. The toilet bowl moved and sewage smell eminates from it at night. Roaches all over. You're afraid to take a shower because of molds on the tiles and curtains. We took pictures and will send it to City health department. That hotel.is a big joke. It's a dump!

This place should not even be accepting reservations let alone $$ for people staying there. Small, smelly, dark, disgusting,dirty. The 'continental breakfast' that was supposed to be included was pre-packaged cake, and there was never any there (I only saw the package). The coffee was who - knows how old, and guests were instructed to flip on the switch to...

Firstly I am giving this dump one star to start my review as no stars isn't an option but it deserves a minus rating to be honest. NO idea where the pictures of this "hotel" originate from - certainly wasn't the hovel where I stayed. The boutique style trendy hotel and spacious rooms shown is not this one. On arrival...

The pictures of this hotel on booking.com are not what you get when your there. I didn't even want to sleep in the bed and I wore thongs in the shower so I didn't pick up tinea. This would have to be one of the most disappointing hotels I have ever stayed in and I was up and out of...
