Floors were not swept. Dirt underneath night stand. Tub was dingy and had a shower mat and was dirty underneath. The water was nice and hot and had great water pressure But the restroom smelled kind of funky like food was being cooked. Which is very odd. There were also little roaches in the restroom. The sheets looked clean and the beds were comfortable. You could hear crickets during the night very loud and in the early morning. The room was rundown and needs some updating. Our stay was for the night only so it was ok. But won't be staying here ever again.

The property could have been cleaner. The bathroom door knob was about to fall off. The bathtub was dirty. The air conditioner leaked "inside" of the room so buckets were placed underneath. If you know they leak, fix them.

This was by far the WORST hotel I've ever stayed at!! It's way over priced for how poor the quality and cleaniless of everything was. All of the towels were dirty with brown and black gunk and looked obviously used, I found small feathers and dirt in every towel that was in the bathroom. The bathtub was disgusting and uncleaned with splatters of who knows what on the sides, the fan in the bathroom doesnt work, the ac took forever to cool the rokm down and when it did it was the loudest appliance I've ever heard, the sheets on the bed were dirty and well as the pillowcases! The pillowcases looked like there were mascara and makeup marks all over them! The "amenities" are a joke, the entire area is so sketchy at night and would never recommend a women traveling alone to stay here. I won't ever stay here again and will never recommend this hotel to anyone- DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

The set up of the property and it didn’t feel clean and the photos described on the app I used didn’t match the hotel my family and I stayed at. I don’t know if I will return to this exact location but I was thinking it would be a lot nicer then what we were given
