My worst hotel stay!! Beware!

I booked a two bed w/sofa room and we got a room with one bed and a chair. No phone to call front desk. All kind of fishy characters hanging around and trash everywhere. Front desk woman was very rude and unaccommodating. I guess you do get what you pay for. Paid for two rooms for two nights, I left after the first night and went to a Best Western which was way better. Beware! No place for kids.

Run don't walk

In town for a nice vacation, excited to get a good nights sleep. The minute walked into the lobby could tell this was a third-world hotel. Garbage everywhere, staff was nice but a little unprofessional, dirty countertop, everything disheveled. And that was before checking in. False advertising-Pool had no water. Room smelled of strong pesticide all night. Slept with a sheet over my head. Cracked countertops, dirty room. No internet, even lobby 'free' internet not working. Then I noticed everyone started asking for their $$ back for same reasons. Felt bad for people w/kids who wanted to swim and could not get their money back. My advice-keep looking.

MOST HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED IN MY LIFE

Where to begin... For starters, I would have felt more safe sleeping on the sidewalk outside or in my car in the parking lot. There were literally gang graffiti all over the doors and elevators. Our room wasn't even clean when we checked in (note: it should have been ready at 3:00 and we checked in at 8:00). There was a massive blood stain on the carpet, hair covering the toilet and sink in the bathroom, and the wifi DOES NOT work and you will get no cell phone service inside the rooms. It is without a doubt the nastiest place I have ever stayed at in my life. The pictures on the website are from the show rooms that are on the bottom floor that they do not rent out. No other rooms look like that. Both nights we stayed here, we were woke up by people and kids running around outside our room and a couple fighting and screaming. When we left for the day and came back, housekeeping had left the room curtains pulled all the way back so that everyone who walked by could see inside our room and see all of our stuff. You most definitely get what you pay for and we have learned our lesson. Don't waste your money - sleep in your car if this is the only option you have.

Worst hotel ever

This hotel is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in . We waited over an hour for 5 sets of people to check in , when it was our turn we then had to wait again as 2 sets of people came back for a refund as they walked in the rooms and saw the condition . The lift took 10 mins and the safety certificate was out of date , hence we walk the 5th floor every time . There were no towels or blankets available at all for two days . No internet . Toilet seat fell off every time you sat on it .there were ants in the rooms and room stank of foist.this truly was terrible . Do not spoil your holiday by staying in this filth even if it is cheap . We didn't try the cleaning staff as we were too scared to trust them as the safe had the locks drilled out .

Under construction

They didn't have enough king bed rooms. The few they did have weren't all clean. Had to switch to a different room category. The only positive about the entire trip was the staff. They tried to get the problem solved. By the looks of it they are under construction because 2 of the three elevators didn't work and 10 rooms were being torn apart and redone.

Convention Stay

Check in was challenging. One front desk 7-3 staff told me I could not check in until 4 pm. At 2:20 pm she is checking in a couple, her computer reportedly "went down", so shortly after the 3 pm crew was at the reception desk, the computers came back up & those of us waiting in the lobby area were checked in. The room was clean, chipped paint was the only flaw noted on the door trim. I asked for a mini fridge & one was delivered within minutes. There were no wash clothes in the room, as in many European hotels I'd stayed at. For the cost, it was a great value, close to the convention center.

Dining tip: In Hotel

If room coffee is desired, bring your own coffee maker, otherwise at the far end of the first floor there is an area for coffee & breakfast for stays that book breakfast.

They just did not let us in

When we arrived, the clerk told us the hotel was overbooked and my reservation (prepaid 2 months in advance) has been cancelled. Staff was very unapologetic and unfriendly, left my family stranded at night on Dec, 28th with no place to go.
