"I'm not the type to write reviews, but this hotel pushed me over the top. It was the kind of night where you are checking into a hotel late and you just want to get to sleep. Walking into a room that had long black hair on the bed, in the tub and all over the bathroom floor was not what I was looking forward to. The carpet had dirty stains, one stain the size of a grapefruit. Honestly, I would've been disappointed if this was a 2 star motel it was that bad. Becareful! (BTW, this was a room on the "premium floor")"
