2/5 Poor

Room had a very bad musty odor. There were dehumidifiers running in the hallway, so the problem was not just with our room. I also heard a vacuum running in the hallway in the middle of the night. The dresser/fridge-microwave cabinet was placed well away from the wall which impeded walking through the room. It seemed like there may have been a flooding event at the hotel, but no mention was made at check-in. In any event, the room was not habitable in it's current state. Also there was what appeared to be blood on one of the towels. Highly disappointed.

pretty good value, finishes were a little tired. There seemed to be some water damage/construction going on the 2nd floor which was covered with plastic

I booked 3 rooms, When the other guests arrived they went into their room and it smelled bad, they found a second room and that smelled worse. The room I had , the toilet didn't flush. I had to tell them to get someone back to fix it. My room had a strange smell to it too, but I just put up with it. It was also pretty damp in the room. The girls at the desk were doing the best they could. It was just very frustrating
