This place is Disgusting! I’ve stayed at some less expensive places before but this one is the worst. Roaches everywhere. Room smells of smoke even though it was supposed to be a non smoking room. Walls had stains like drinks or something which explains all the roaches feasting. Carpet was sticky. Curtains didn’t work properly so I had to use a hanger to keep them shut for some privacy. Even the pillows recked of smoke. Honestly worst experience ever. Never staying here again!
