    This hotel is relatively cheap, but the decor makes it one of the strangest hotels I've ever stayed at.

    The area is the best part if the hotel. Staff was extremely friendly. Rooms could use a little upkeep - wallpaper coming off the walls, furniture damaged looking. Overall a great stay though!

    After a menu revamp, this spot comes correct with a full-on burger bar. Check out the bacon jam topped Helix or the brisket chili & onion ring Texan. Also available on top: a fried egg & crab dip. Read more

    Nice hotel. Very spacious rooms. The rooms could stand a deep cleaning on the carpets and a few upgrades in the bathrooms. Not the best but far from the worst.

    The air conditioning is awful, and they pre-authorize $100 PER NIGHT on your card without disclosing it. We called their operator for over an hour no answer! Just trying to set a wake up call!

    Mod lobby brings your right to the point. Small yet nifty bar lends it personality to the thematic evil lair lines. Good service, full cocktail list. Tiny TVs. ** #mayormorris

    Don't ever bring a date or anyone you're trying to impress. Brothel-curtains at the entrance and the euro trash decor gives it a mod Hostel feel. I'm sure HH is great but horrible for out-of-towners
