Don't waste your money
Terrible experience. When I opened the door of my room, it had not been cleaned after the previous guest. They had to put me in a smaller room. The beds where falling apart, it was very dirty, blood drops in ceiling (like from a syringe)

Staff were very nice but the place could use lots of updating. Bathroom had mold on the ceiling, carpets were dirty looking, mattresses had stains on them. First night there, the room next to us was filled with men screaming and yelling all night.

It's not really a hotel, it's quite small and dirty. Does not match what you book in the pictures at all. Upon arrival there are bags full of dirty linen just left in the hallway. They only have Chromecast and do not have cable. This wasn't in the control of the staff but the night we stayed there, there was a blackout. Throughout the night you can hear people walking in the hallways, coming and going. You can also hear people talking in rooms next door. The rooms were not clean but more so arranged to look clean. Would never stay here again. The only positive aspect is the free parking and location.

Fair 4.0
It really needs a very good cleaning, new towels and there was no hot water in the bathroom the last day of our stay. Breakfast did not have hot water for tea.

Poor 2.0
There is a woman name stela, she is amazing and welcomed me with smile and enthusiasm...her smile very contagious. But after , the whole building is a mess , the picture on the website is so far to be same as much the reality . Omg , the breakfast is a completely joke , the room is small and the bed is so old and I slept super bad . It’s a very waste money . Well, ok I understand this place is cheap but almost they can make a minimum effort to keep as something people can rely on . The wifi is a joke , nothing in this place is right except the stuff ( wow) . It was my first but it is the last time.
