    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Charged us extra $10 a night for a pool view. When we got there is was covered in a big ugly dome so we asked for our $20 extra back for the 2 days. They were very rude and pretty much told us we shouldn't even be in their state... wow. My dad also found a bug in his room.
