  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

It was such a smelly, greasy, stained, dusty room that i (NOT a fancy or picky person whatsoever) asked to check out immediately. Even though the lady at the desk said i would only have to pay for one night, i am seeing the full cost of 4 nights has been billed to the card, so i'm probably in for a fight.
