There were numerous stains on the bed sheets which was super gross. The chairs had stains all over them, and we only had a half a roll of very crappy toilet paper in our room. The bathroom towels were so old and worn too that they were grayish/brown. When they were supposed to be white...

Staff was great, price was great, no enough electrical outlets though so bring an extension cord that has a couple extra plugs in it. That light switch in the center just above the bed makes up for it, very handy

When checking in, I asked how many towels were in the room (we were a party of four). The answer given was, “Two…and I don’t have any way to get you anymore.” Upon entering the outdated room, the carpeted floor outside the toilet/shower room was wet and the room smelled damp. The tub/shower was clean, but only soap was provided, no shampoo or conditioner. For the high price paid for the night we expected basic amenities and no bodily stains on the bedspread!?
