According to the website when I booked, there were to be hair dryers in the rooms and vending on site. There was no hair dryer, when I called the front desk to ask if they even had one I could use, i was told no. I went down as I couldn't find any vending machines and asked if they had any and was told no,ppl are to hard on them so they were removed. The breakfast I was told would be cereal, muffins, donuts, toast, juice, coffee and milk. We went down to breakfast, the lady literally just placed a container of donut holes in the case and there was cereal and juice. The pictures showed waffle iron, etc. Cigarette burns on the sheets. Housekeeping tried to get into the room at 8:15 am, thankfully, I still had the chain on the door. The wifi and tv worked.

You get what you pay for $73. Dried paint splatters in tub, wobbly toilet, chunk of weatherstripping missing from door allowing bugs in and my towels had kinky hair stuck in them.
