Disgusting! From the smell of urine in the parking lot to the smell of smoke in the hotel room, this place was horrible. The hallways had carpet that was worn through. The overwhelming smell of smoke when I walked into the room. The random paint blotches on the walls where damage or graffiti was poorly painted over. I ran into two ladies in the elevator who had just checked into their room and told me that they’re heading down to check out and go somewhere else because it was so nasty. I wish I was them. There’s a bum that seems fo sleep in the check in area, and a bum outside who was digging around in his pants enough to creep me out. I will never go back to this place. Oh, and I almost forgot, the train tracks in front of the hotel aren’t just for looks. The trains come through all night long so on top of hearing people fighting in the abandoned building behind the hotel, there’s also loud trains blasting their horns all night to prevent any good sleep. But then again, the uncomfortable bed was doing a pretty good job of doing that, too.
