The corridors needed cleaning. Fire extinguisher stand was off the wall with the extinguisher propping the door open. The walls in the room needed paint next to the bed. Bed skirt was crumpled. The towels were thread bare. The reception area was cluttered. I am well aware that lot of hotels are struggling for lack of staff during the pandemic and this may be the case here as well.

The sheets were not clean. Very hairy obviously someone else had slept there and they didn’t change the sheets or pillow cases. Someone spilled food on the sheets and they still weren’t changed. The back door to my room didn’t lock so I couldn’t leave anything in there for fear of it being stolen. I used a small piece of rope to try to tie it so you couldn’t get it open but it wouldn’t keep anyone out if they were trying hard enough. Within 3 minutes of the shower running you were standing in ankle deep water and if you took a shower near ten minutes the water was about to over flow out of the bathtub. The front door didn’t closed unless you slammed it so if you just walked out of your room your door would still be open. The website advertises free breakfast but when they get there, there is a sign that says no breakfast due to covid which I completely understand but it’s been 1.5 YEARS of covid just change the website or advertisement until you bring it back. There was pieces of food all over the carpet and smushed into the carpet. I literally stayed fully clothed and in my shoes the entire time I was in the room and slept above the comforters. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.
