Paid $90. You get what you pay for. Property needs a little updating, new towels and blankets. There was an odd smell in the room. Walls and ceiling are paper thin. We could hear every move the person above us made. Can hear the cars/freeways around.

I don't like nothing because you guys make impossible for me to enjoy what I pay for.Also this people that manage that hotel is not friendly at all, the don't like when you make a reservation out of their control. They hate it! Is very noticable on their facial expressions and on their negative emotions on their speech.

The hotel was pretty low quality. The windows didnt lock, in fact the locks were completely gone. The door lock card unit was coming off the door. I felt seriously unsafe. There was dog hair in the carpet, and the room smelled awful, not cleaned well at all. They put an unannounced $100 card hold in my credit card, and then would not remove it at checkout. I honestly would have left and found another location but theres a big sign in the lobby that says “no refunds”. Would not recommend at all.
