  • My wife and I stayed in a private room directly off the kitchen/common area. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and their was much noise from the common area. I would like not stay their again, or at least in the same room.

  • The lady who was on staff pretended to not be able to read the computer screen for the customers before me and gave them a lesser quality room. I had a confirmed reservation...the lady said it was not in their computer. They did not have the room or private bath room as I requested. I stayed at another hotel 2 blocks away. It was much nicer and had qualified staff to meet your needs.

  • I had a wonderful time at Gaudy's. The staff was so kind and gratious, and went above and beyond in everyway. I met many wonderful other travelers there as well. As a young female traveling alone I never once felt unsafe or uncomfortable. The rooms are clean and nice and an awesome deal for the price.
