Grimey Smelly Slummy and Shady

Called to see if we could check in a lottle early because we work nights, we were told No. We arrive around 4 pm and the lobby smelled like curry and fish (gross) $30 cash room deposit, i had to ask for a second key. We entered the room and the floors were dirty with dried food, bathroom floor and tub were black with grime, mini fridge was outside defrosting, we had to bring it in and clean it ourselves and when i called down to front desk they acted like they were surprised. Shen i asked for a 12 pm checkoit instead of 11 i was told no. They could have at least given us that since they didnt sweep and mop the floors or clean the fridge and put it inside the room. Horeible experience. A waste of money.
