Hidden fees. If you stay here you will regret it.
When booking the room the red flags started popping up. I found out the deposit was virtually non refundable. Then found out the rate was only for "members". In order to get the low rate you have to pay a membership! So much for a lower rate. So before we even got to the room we were already wanting to back out but you only have 24 hours to get your refund otherwise your locked in because you didn't read the fine print. Without any way to lose the deposit, we paid the balance upon arrival WITH A MONEY ORDER? Why can't you pay with anything else? Maybe because you would stop payment for breach of contract. (I'll explain shortly.)
Even before we arrived another red flag pops up, they claimed the cable was being switched to a new provider and that there is a dvd player in the room as an alternative just in case the service isn't restored. Later we found out the player didn't even work.
You have to go to a basement apt. eight blocks away to get the key. The "office" was two desks sitting together in the empty apt.
Upon arrival we noticed the room was old and smelled horrible. There was no cable, no player, NO AIR CONDITIONING because there was no a/c unit! This is a breach of contract. It was June and no a/c. When I called to complain about the a/c missing all I got was voice mail. The contract says you have to call within 24 hours, or you accept it as is. When I got up the next morning soaked in sweat I called again. The person I spoke to said they would do their best to respond within 24 hrs. NO AIR FOR FIVE DAYS! All future calls went straight to voice mail. Don't bother to call they have your money already paid in full. That must be why you have to pay the balance with a money order.
During our stay we had noise outside our window every night because of the bar directly across from the apt. Also there were roaches. I killed two of them on two separate days. There were dust bunnies all over. An ironing board but no iron?
At least one outlet didn't work either.
Needless to say I won't be using my "membership" again.
