Do your very best to avoid this place
Staff was not responsive and rude. Dirty beds and restroom
Neighborhood was scary and falling apart. Homeless people, boarded up houses, curtains of the hotel were falling down so you could see into filthy rooms. We ended up staying at a different hotel.
Everything else, should be torn down
The staff were very nice and friendly, making sure we felt at home, and accommodated an early arrival for us! There was also a fridge in the room which was great for bringing home left-overs.
The location was close to the MAX (about a 10 minute walk), but it was in a questionable neighborhood (there were hypodermic needles on the sidewalks), making us feel unsafe to walk home after dark, so we took a cab. Also, the room had no trash can, and didn't come with towels - we had to request them.
sleeping was not possible due to the ugly smell
nothing is there you can like, take the hotel out of your file!
It was close to the Wonder Ballroom where we went to a concert.
It was very run down and a little shifty. I would not go there again.
