Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness
The first room they gave us was disgusting. The pillows, sheets and towels appeared to be used. The bathroom was dirty and there was food on the floor. They had the nerve to put the Lysol sticker on the door which is supposed to let you know the room was sanitized and it was disgusting.
