Great location, one issue, kind of pricey for the rooms, thought it would have been a little bit classier bit location was great. My room had an extra door leading out to the deck area/pool but it was locked... I could use it. Sad.😡

Bathroom was really small, the shower door leaked and got water all over the floor, which made the floor slippery. The bed was very hard and squeezed terribly with any movementmovement. You also had no control over the thermostat so the room was freezing cold. Overall I wouldn't not stay there again or recommend it.

The hotel staff was outstanding. They were nice and professional. Probably the most professional staff I have ever encountered. The hotel itself is outdated. We picked the hotel for its pool and attached restaurant, but both were closed which was a huge disappointment. We specifically booked the hotel so that our daughter could swim while we were on vacation. It would've been nice to know that the pool was closed. After reading the sign on the restaurant door, it sounds like the reason everything is closed is because the Essex will be remodeling soon. This is great news! However, this should be communicated more thoroughly before people book their room.

The hotel is well kept and the location is great. The HVAC is dated and the room is very warm, but the staff was more than accommodating and provided us with a fan to keep us cool. The shower is a little temperamental, but nothing too troublesome. And for only a hundred bucks a night, it makes the location alone worth the value. The staff is great, the location is great, and I would definitely recommend this hotel.

For the price and location, a great experience. Has some charm as an older building, but fear not: the rooms were clean and up to date. Service was excellent. Access to the L is reasonable as well. Great landing spot if you're looking to visit the city.

This was one of the worst experiences of my life. First, we arrived at the hotel to find a bloody mess on our sheets when we walked in. Second, the indoor pool is filthy (actual mold and dirt) and full of dead bugs. Then, the icing on the cake, they double charged my card (causing me to over-draw) and tried to tell me that it was a hold that would expire. After calling my bank, I learned this was untrue and that they actually charged me on two seperate days two charges that were not going to be released on their end. My bank had to literally argue with the front desk before this expiration date magically appeared to have the funds put back into my account. This happened to others I was staying with as well. Also, the entire hotel smells awful, and i'm not sure what the smell is. Seriously, after reading others reviews and experiencing it myself, I suggest you do not stay here.

This hotel was HORRIBLE. Upon arriving to my floor I was greeted by the smell of Marijuana. Entering my room, the carpet was dingy and cob webs were on the ceiling. The tub backed up and the toilet overflowed. The bathroom ceiling was absolutely disgusting!!! Walls are paper thin, don't expect to sleep much. I tried to get a refund immediately and was told I should not have checked in so...NO!! I would not have checked in if i knew the room looked like and smelled like it did. Don't stay here!!! If you do sleep in your clothes and shoes and bring scented candles for the dusty smell. Shame on this hotel.
