Probably the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in. We arrived before check-in time ended and no one was there. Key in the drop box didn’t work. Room smelled, had dirty dishes in the sink, TV remote didn’t work, absolutely no hot water for showers, fighting outside the window at 2 am, no one in office when we wanted to check out even tho it was office hours. Horrible experience.

Shower did not function, no bath mat, lack of adequate towels, no counter space in bathroom, very primitive conditions throughout. We left after one night, and they refused to credit for the two additional nights booked and paid for.
