Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
the first room we were given smelled strongly of cigarettes so we asked for another one. I wanted to change from a single bed to a twin bed, but I was told that I must then cancel my reservation in the expedia app and book a new one ... .. but these rooms are non refundable .... in general, the problem was not solved for us .... the inside is pretty clean, the outside is very sad .... the only plus is that next to the gas station Costco and markets
