Dirty, grimy, hot and overall unpleasant. Checked in and out on the same day and was charged for the first night even though we didn't stay - pictures online are deceiving. Would never have booked here if I knew what it really looked like. Had to park on the street where we were told that a week prior to our visit, someone's car window had been smashed there. Would not recommend this place to anyone. Trip advisor gave it 3 stars - I give it MINUS 3 stars.
