Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The front desk employees need a serious attitude adjustment, the rooms look absolutely nothing like they did online, I picked a non smoking room and my bedding, towels and shower curtain had burn marks all over them and the room reeked of marijuana. The location was awful. And the door was scary I was terrified all night that someone would come in my room , the shower had black mold in the corners and the shower handle was wonky and didn’t work well. I could hear people all night long outside on the balcony through the paper thin walls. I was mortified that I had to stay in this hotel and will NEVER GO BACK. I can’t believe I spent 90$ to stay in a place that awful
