1/5 Terrible

Business traveler, Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I had to take my own cleaning supplies to clean the whole room and bathroom. Towels and sheets smelled dirty. Seriously got me so upset that I had to clean the whole place to feel a little better staying there

First off, the room looked NOTHING like the picture on Expedia! If the picture was a 10, the actual room was a "ONE"! The comforter was atrocious! We had a Black shower curtain. Yikes!!! Not a second roll of toilet tissue and the one on the tube was almost out! No pictures on the dark colored walls (on the site, the walls were light-colored), no clock, no table lamps! It was no where near worth the $90 we paid for the stay! Not even an ice machine --- REALLY!? As hot as California gets and you can't invest in a stinking ice machine! The only good thing about the room was the flooring! Nice clean and fake wood. The rest of the room and bath was abysmal! The housekeeping lady was very helpful and was the only other best thing about our stay! But unfortunately, we will NEVER be back, and Expedia needs to hold these properties accountable to what they are advertising on their site! Because this was just unacceptable and the photos of what they are presenting was just totally deceiving!
