My boyfriend and I booked two nights here right after Christmas for a bit of a vacation. We chose it because it was cheap and seemed central. I really wish we picked a different place. The only positives were the location - it was more or less central - and the receptionist who was super welcoming and pleasant.
But really, I didn't enjoy this stay in the slightest. Dingy is the perfect word for the room. It was stale and there were scuff marks and smudges on the walls. The bed was not a real double bed but two small singles pushed together. They kept sliding apart and were very uncomfortable. The worst part of the room was absolutely the bathroom. There was a sign in there saying not to flush anything down the toilet. We weren't supposed to flush toilet paper. The bathroom didn't smell good to begin with when we arrived, and since we followed the direction on the sign so as not to ruin what was apparently the worlds most delicate plumbing, the entire room smelled terrible. I guess we could've ignored the sign but I didn't want to break something? Anyway. The shower was also terrible - the doors to the shower stall didn't close all the way, the shower head didn't spray as much as it dribbled, and the drain stopped up after only a few minutes so that the shallow basin flooded and water went all over the floor. The walls to the room were paper thin and we heard everything from the other rooms. Wouldn't recommend this place at all.
