Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This hotel is terrible. They charged me twice for the same night. It’s been 6 month and even Expedia can’t return me my money. Nobody is picking up the phone or give a comprehensive answer. Read about this place on another site - same deal!!! They charge people for the staying, even when you have a reservation thru Expedia or someone else. Shame. Gonna call the local police office.

Greeted at check in by two women watching tv loudly on mobile devices. They never paused while we were checking in, and hadn't stopped for a huge line after we came back down. That was the first red flag. Second red flag, we got to our room and it was already occupied. The couple who were in the room came by shortly after and their keys no longer worked. So we all went back down to the desk. This is when the line grew. Other friends that stayed in another room also had a pretty bad roof leak and were questioned about it. When we came back to our new room, there was another family down the hall having key issues where they wondered aloud whether our room was actually theirs. Inside our room things were relatively clean. The fridge was not on so the things we needed to stay cold did not. Our sheets also had what looked like makeup or ash stains and melted wax stains. We will not be coming back.

Bad stay
Upon check in the three employees at the counter were speaking only in their language so I could not understand them . No smile , no pleasantness and most of all no face masks on any of them . Room had foot marks all over the walls . Room was dirty. I would not recommend to anyone.
