I’ve been a guest for many years because my husband it’s from Ecuador, but this time was last time I will spend my money there. Room as by the street and I couldn’t sleep because the constant noise from traffic. They start to charge parking fee ( before was included) and when we checked out we had to wait 10 min until somebody went to check the rooms and count the towels and make sure we didn’t steal anything. OMG yes I know it’s a first time for me too. Like I will pay $ 200 to steal your towel. Plenty of other choices around .
