Horrible area. Definitely need security guards or someone to patrol the area. Broken phone, plugged in but no dial tone or buttons. Seen a few roaches. Will NEVER go back again! The worst experience ever!

We stayed here just cuz it was close to coastal credit for a concert. My friend picked the hotel, so I got a good look around as I waited in the car while she checked us in. The parking lot was filthy, 'guests' gathering around cars listening to loud music and throwing dinner garbage onto the ground. We actually saw a used pregnancy test stick in the parking lot!! Room (118) was completely gross. I immediately suggested going to another hotel even if it meant we'd be late for our show. It had no remote, the bathroom looked like it was still being worked on, cigarette burns on tub, and there were cockroaches crawling out from under the beds! I would never ever stay there again. $55 is way too much, unless you're homeless or just really need a roof over your head. But do not expect much.

The place should be condemned. High crime location; mainly drugs and prostitution. Open use of sharing needles and open solicitation. 24/7. The people are the victims of their own crimes. Very sad. But also dangerous. And nasty. Nasty nasty nasty. I recommend the place be demolished. Find another place.

Let me start with the booking, I booked the hotel through booking.com and should have adhered to the reviews however I had hoped that maybe someone was just very critical. I wasn't looking for five star but I was at least looking for a safe environment. Upon walking to our room we witnessed 2 drug deals being made on the sidewalk of the hotel, about 5 doors that looked as if the were beaten in, and our cards were not working properly. I was harassed by three men on my way to the vending machine. Then on top of that after going to our concert and coming back theyre were 3 less fortunate people sleeping on the sidewalk one of which grabbed my legs as I walked by. The cops were called but the hotel did nothing to approach the situation. On top of that my boyfriend, brother, and family friend were approached by three prostitutes on the way in. The rooms were very unclean. The sheets with stains, the chairs with rips, pillows with urine stains, and towels with hairs. Knights Inn should have this hotel condemned and cut their losses. I cannot believe that any hotel would not have better sleeping quarters for their customers to sleep in. PICTURES DO NOT DO THE PLACE JUSTICE for what it actual is, they are deceiving and not what the hotel actually presents. Also they only reserved one room when I booked two showed my reservation and did not give me the same price for the second room when I had to rebook that room.

Worst hotel I've ever stayed at! I felt unsafe! There were prostutes outside, people partying and fighting, and beating the walls all night! I plan to dispute the charges! Please never stay there! There was no toilet paper and no blankets! I felt like a prisoner! Best part was leaving!

The bed was wet with urine. The bathroom and floor is nasty. Pubic hairs in towels. Lots of sketchy people and loud music all night on Sunday night. I guess they don’t work. Scary place. Googled it on internet. Someone killed here recently.

I was a little scared to stay here based on previous reviews, but it was already paid for so I just stayed. I will say that it’s srill not the best location but it has improved tremendously on cleanliness. The new wood floors look great. There still isn’t a lot going on in the room. But it’s no longer the worst hotel I’ve ever been to
