4/10 Fair

This place qas filled with the smell of cigarettes, i think their air filter is clogged because my room is a nonsmokers, but the smell of cigarettes travel from other rooms to mine, its so strong that my clothes smells like smoke, the sheets smells like smoke too. And also, they have prostitution on site. You will find people walking the yard asking you if you want girls and that they will send them to your room. Whether management is involved, that I dont know. But be aware there are people living in this hotel and smoking in all the rooms is prohibited but people does it because you cant really find the source of it. Overall cleanliness, compared to the Ramada building, this is fine. It was an okay experience. I was worried that people didnt break in my car or have extra keys to my room, because yes I dont think its a safe hotel at all.

Cheap hotel gonna cheap hotel
The lady who checked me in was nice and the stay wasn’t abysmal. But I couldn’t get over the smell of smoke, loud noise, sketchy characters, and signs of wear and tear. Definitely got what I paid for.
