Disappointing - 2.0 out of 5

Nikki, Chaska, visiting Concord Music Hall Sun, 3 January 2016

Old building; peeling paint; no light could reach the shower so it was dark; bed very uncomfortable with springs sticking up; no mini fridge.

Liked: Cozy.
Disliked: Paint was peeling; elevators dirty; parking not directly connected so had to carry luggage in the cold.

Poor - 1.0 out of 5

Diane, Yankton Wed, 5 June 2013

Disliked: We left the hotel due to the condition of the rooms. It was very disappointing. We asked for our money back but was denied. It would be appropriate for these charges to be adjusted from our account.

Maria, Chicago Mon, 8 April 2013

I live in Chicago already and this by far was the worst hotel room I've been in. Really wish there was a mini fridge in the room too. Very crowding; very disappointed.

Liked: Don't know.
Disliked: Room was very small; horrible view.
