This place is in a bad location away from everything the rooms need renovation bad the bathroom needs renovation bad and the gym was so crowded it wasn't even worth the trouble. Plus the incompetent person at the desk held onto my ID card I had to ask for it back after she made a copy of it. Do yourself a favor and just don't pay a little more and stay somewhere decent!


I felt very uncomfortable and unsafe at this facility, there was a domestic disturbance a few rooms from me with a woman screaming she was being murdered and the police being called on 2 different occasions through out the night, i was in a female only area and there were constantly men of different ages walking around, being able to see right into the bathroom facilities. The wifi didnt work & it was very noisy and so overpriced for what it offered, i would not recommend this to anyone!
