  • Liked: Room comfort
  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

The furniture in our room was very "beat-up." The actual bedroom was not very clean. The baseboards/floor along the walls had over an inch thick of dust. The room obviously had not been vacuumed, under one bed was a pile of cough drops & the other was an unopened package of kids arm floaties and there was trash laying behind the actual trash can. The bathroom had 1 single Kleenex left, it was actually stuffed back into the box. For over $150 for one night, during the COVID-19 pandemic, I feel like we left there feeling dirty.
