This is a very old, overpriced, dark, not so clean room. Hard tissue and dark dirty towels. My reservations were canceled by mistake for the second day. I was kind of happy, that way i could leave. My trip was cut short and it was a good thing. Good thing was the staff was very nice and professional.

Where do we start? The carpets felt filthy, there was a something white on the carpet - I didn't bother to check it. The room smelled of smoke. and mildew. We slept in dirty clothes to keep our normal sleeping attire clean. The door does not seal to the outside, as someone smoked near the door, and the smoke just floated in. I was too tired to fight the desk clerk - who seemed to have a chip on her shoulder when I walked in to get the room. We will not be staying there again. Ever.
