Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
We showed up at 3:45 (well after normal check in). Our room wasn’t ready and was not ready for another 45 minutes. The door rubber strip was broken so there was a 3/4 inch gap between the door and floor where the light filtered in at night. I had to use a rolled towel to prevent the light and NOISE coming in. I tried to go to the pool at night and found glass bottles on the floor and there were so many people in the pool, the water looked dirty - needless to say I skipped the pool. The next day, they run out of most breakfast items by 9am. I won’t be staying at this hotel ever again and won’t recommend it to anyone. Substandard!

The hotel was not clean. Trash laid outside of our hotel room door - not ours— for two days. Floors in the lobby were gross. The elevator looked like it had never been cleaned.
