"A Terrible Place. Health and Safety Hazard. Other Hotels Very Close By."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Firstly, there are a few good things about it: (1) Cheap about $36-$50 per night (plus taxes etc). (2) Location just off the Philips Highway and walking distance to gas station, mall and food outlets (3) Pleasant front desk staff. Now here is the list of bad stuff: (1) The rooms are really dirty. The air conditioner was extremely dirty that dirt and filth was coming out from the blower and landing on my bed, even after the air conditioner guys cleaned the unit. The A/C was so dirty that it affected me. I got an infected throat and my tonsils got inflamed from the bacteria in the air that I ended up getting sick and was on medication. For most of my stay there, I just left the window open for air, which also was not good because this caused the dust from the highway to blow into my room. I made several calls and complained to the front desk until they became tired of me. The cleaners were sent and when this failed, I just left the unit off. (2) The towels and linens are worn out and full of stains. They were in such bad condition that the next morning of my arrival I carried them to the laundry room and cleaned them myself at my cost. I even told the front desk to NOT take my linens/towels for their weekly housekeeping as I will do that myself (they were that dirty!). The funny part about all of this is that when I told the manager about the state of dirtiness in my room and me washing my own linens/towels her response was, "That's okay, I usually do that myself when I go to hotels". When I told her about the air condition and that I have to leave the windows open she said, "Would you like curtains? If you upgrade and become a Choice Member, you can be upgraded to curtains" (3) The non-smoking room was wreaking with stale cigarette smoke. When I called the manager, she said at first "I don't smell anything", then later on she admitted that she'll deal with it. She brought a plug in air refresher and sprayed the carpet. When I asked about the smoke detectors inside the room, she said that they usually don't work. (4) The stove top had two burners, of which only one worked. (5) The other guests who stay there make a lot of noise at night when hanging out in the balcony. You will find hundreds of cigarette butts all over the place and the corridors are not clean at all. (6) Housekeeping was in and out of my room within three minutes. Which included vacuuming, cleaning bathroom and changing sheets etc. That's the extent of their cleaning unsatisfactory. Summary: (a) If you can, stay away from this hotel. I think it is a health and safety hazard (b) Do not take your kids there (c) If you must go then carry your cleaning agents and give the room a full clean out (d) If you complain to management, be ready for the usual pep talk and customer friendly responses, but it comes with really poor actions. 30-Mar-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Mon Mar 02 to Tue Mar 31 2015 at a $36.99 group rate.
