Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Other reviews said there were new owners and the place was "clean but needed updated". I found that the place was filthy. The manager walked us to the room, the door was unlocked. First impressions were awful, the floor was so visibly dirty! There was a part of a shoe lace, food and other stuff on the floor. It was visible so there is no way anyone could have believed the floor had been vacuumed. When I pulled back the cover on the bed there was a wrapper (condom wrapper?) in the sheets. I was so disgusted I left the room and called the manager (she had left to find the key) and told her we would not be staying because the room had obviously not been cleaned in a very long time. If there are in fact new owners, I'd suggest they come on to their property more often to see what is going on there. I travel a lot and prefer little local places. I have never encountered a place that was so obviously neglected. I cannot stress enough - do not stay here.
