Old, in desperate need of an upgrade
We stayed here for 1 night in September 2007. The location is very good, but the hotel itself is just...so so. The lobby was a much better impression than the rooms. Our room was very small and very old. Carpet was old and stained and the bed was rock hard with a very thin very old and worn comforter. Tiny bathroom, very plain. The little kitchenete was a nice feature though, it came in handy. The lock/door to our room was a big pain in the butt, as everytime we tried to get in our room we had to practically break down the door because it stuck so bad. Our view...oh my..never have we had such a horrible view! Our window overlooked a big brick wall that was falling apart and underneath it was about 4 dump trucks and piles of broken concrete and rubble. We were thinking on requesting a different room, but seeing that we were only there for 1 night and hardly in the room at all, we decided not to bother. Also the elevator was broken the entire afternoon and we had to climb 6 flights of stairs. Our TV was tiny (about 13") and had an antenna and got about 3 channels which we barely came in. The only thing this hotel had going for it was the location. But we will not be back.
