    Good

    Price and location

    The halls were musty smelling. The shower curtain was moldy and the ironing board was not useful because it was attached to a cabinet and the closest outlet was inoperable. We saw roaches on our last day of stay. the side chair was very close to the floor (low).

    Nothing

    The ceiling in the room , bath room & wall paper were coming apart. There was used condom on the floor just outside the room the general cleansiness was just not good . Had to buy some towels as the hotel towels did not look clean even after requesting fresh ones.

    Nothing

    I was not impressed with the fact that the hotel restaurant was closed. Also the room and hotel itself were very dirty. Our room was very noisy due to the toilet constantly running and the ice machine located outside our door.

    They left dirty towels in the bathroom, beds were hard as a rock and it was dirty.

    N/A.

    Employees are very rude. The rooms look nothing like the online photos. Our room had mold growing on its walls and our bed sheets had holes burned into them. Our hair dryer also caught on fire while in use. This hotel is AWFUL!

    It was near the Wellsfargo Center.

    People got into our room somehow, Stole mostly all of my things. The manager was called many of times and I was told he wasn’t going to come in. Got multiple dates and times when the manager was supposed to be there, he never came. It was an emergency and he still didn’t show up.

    Room was dirty, had a bad smell, hair on and inbetween the sheets. Was stuck on the elevator for 20minutes. TV didn't work when we got there. The free breakfast I would give to a dog. The other party I came with also had multiple problems with their room. Also th window opens up on the 6th floor. This is the worst hotel "what a laugh" ive ever been in. I wish I could give it a 0.

    None.

    Too much to list.

    False advertising -- no pool, no restaurant- no microwave, refrigerator. Staff was not knowledgeable about local restaurants, directions, etc. Refused housekeeping. The whole place was just shoddy.

    Fabulous

    The location was great, I was leaving on an early am flight and the free shuttle service to airport was a plus. The room was clean, the staff was helpful, and the price was excellent. Great place for the money!!!!!!!

    There was no hair dryer or coffee maker in the room, and they advertised a sports bar, but it was closed and appeared to be for a long time. The elevators were slightly shabby, but we really weren't put off enough by any of these negatives. We would definitely stay there again.

    We wanted to go swimming but the pool had no water in it and the staff said it was under maintenance. The bathroom could have been a lot cleaner and my children and I were almost burned using the shower because the cold water didn't work. The website said there would be a microwave and refridgerator in the room but there was neither. There only seemed to be air conditioning in the room because it was extremely warm in the hallways and the elevator.

    Very good

    After reading reviews about this hotel my daughter was not happy with our choice. But after staying there, it wasn't as bad as the reviews led us to believe. It's not a 5 star resort, but I'd rather spend my money on the trip and not at our hotel. It was clean, staff nice, location was perfect-close to the ball park. It was located in a nice part of town with cute shops, a great restaurant across the street, and close to a gas station.

    Our only complaint about the hotel is the elevator.....it was slow!!!

    Superb

    I enjoyed the furniture and the bathroom tile. I also liked the color of the walls and carpet.I Enjoyed the view.....next time maybe a different room.I Liked the location off the busline and the complimentary trip to the airport.

    The ice machines were not working.... The swimming pool was not available and the restaurant was not opened for business.

    They finally got the shower to work

    Almost everything; especially the obpressive heat in the room because the air conditioning wasn't working well.

    There was no swimming pool or restuarant as stated on the website. The bedding and curtains had holes in them. It was about an hour walk from downtown, with only 2 restuarants nearby.

    Superb

    The staff was very great at the hotel along with the amazing diner right across the street that made it really convenient for our family.
