Needs maintenance
Didn't mind that room was small, i've stayed at POD's before, the room had a stale odor that smelled like damp carpet that wasn't just in my room, but others also. Asked for air fresher and you could tell it wasn't first time as there was freshener hanging in closet. It did no good. Would be nice if the hotel advise guests not to smoke right in front of door, to have to travel the gauntlet of marijauna and cigarettes, when you don't partake is unfortunate.

POD experience
The Pod is different ….shared bathrooms. But for only $20 more I was able to get private bathroom that was worth it. It’s a nice hotel w a good concept, but they’ve raised their rates to the point of it not making sense to do the hostel type shared bathroom / bunk bed thing when you can get a regular hotel room for the same price
