2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
While the room was quite and spacious, it was very unkept. The toilet seat and shower and hair on them. It was very dusty in the bedspread had lots of unwashed stains on them. The ceiling in the front room was crumbling and the couches had lots of hair on them. The icemaker on the floor did not work. While advertised on the website as well as the amenities guide on the television as having room services, I was informed that there was not in fact room service when I called the room service button from my room.
