2.5 Bad

Cons:The pictures on your ad are very deceiving. The building is extremely old, run dow, out dated and dirty. Shower had mildew and carpets smelled. No hot water. I’m declining the charge on my credit card.

2.0 Bad
Pros:The lobby was tastefully decorated

Cons:The room has a musky wet dog smell. The source: visable mold on walls and in bathroom. Complained to front desk and was informed 'no refunds' and only other available room was with a TWIN size bed. What hotel has a twin size bed?! Tried that room, same smell but not as strong. Suspicious, I checked around bed and found evidence of bed bugs. Thankfully we had not unpacked. Informed front desk about these health hazards and ended up going to another hotel. I paid two hotels for the same nights stay. Disgusted by the lack of concern by Embassy hotel, especially no refund policy. I hope they use their scam money to decontaminate the hotel

5.1 Passable
Pros:Cheap, in downtown, gated lot for parking

Cons:outskirts of rough neighborhood, my family was uncomfortable walking around at night. Staff seemed friendly or aloof, depending on who was there. Elevator works only when all doors on all floors are closed, so you might have to take stairs. $30 parking/night

2.8 Bad
Pros:The Art Decorated rooms were pretty and esthetically pleasing to the artistic eye, but that's it.

Cons:Pretty much everything else. Hotel advertises parking, a play structure for kids, air conditioning, a restaurant, and bar and lounge. Let's start with the play structure. Is it on the same block? Yes. Is it theirs? No. Is it nice? No. Is it una neighborhood you'd want to take your kids to play? Hell no! Then there's the non existent air conditioning. Hotel doesn't have it. Bathrooms don't even have exhaust fans... The restaurant? Not theirs either. It's just nearby. And don't get in late because it closes at ten. The bar and lounge is not theirs either. It's just next door. Although the as makes it seems like all of this is part of their hotel. All they have is a cafe open until 2pm. The worst part is the parking. Add says they have parking. They don't. Here's the best part. They said, "There is a parking area connected to the back of our hotel. But it's not ours and we are not affiliated. It's $35 per night. You can pay that to us here. We have a video camera on it that I can see from OUR front desk. We can open the gate from here for you. And you can walk into the back of our hotel from the parking. Oh, you have an SUV? That will be $45 then for oversized parking." WHAT? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! That sounds awfully affiliated for non-affiliated. Sure seems like you're charging people $30-45 for overnight parking and pretending its someone else. And it was full of SUVs. We rented three rooms for eight people totalling in the $700-800 range and you seriously wanted an extra$45 to park our damn car? When we complained about all this, the staff was EXTREMELY rude. After a great deal of arguing, he told us the manager would be in in the morning and we could "take it up with him". Yeah, guess who "wasn't in" when we came down at 9:30? Save yourself a nightmare. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

4.8 Mediocre

Cons:Subway soda left in my room upon arrival.
