Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
very disappointed with this place. My room wasnt ready at check in, and the room wasnt very clean when the room was ready. I had to clean everything before we unpacked. I didnt clean the microwave because it smelled so bad and was filthy to the point that i was scared to touch it. we had no hot water for the entire stay. The complimentary shampoo and soap that was listed that was complimentary was a hand soap dispenser beside the bathroom sink and one installed on the shower wall. there was not enough towels or wash cloths and the housekeeper comes to clean only when you have checked out and leaving. No clean towels are given after the first day. The room and building is extremely outdated and the tub had paint peeling off of it. The staff wasnt friendly and even seemed prejudice. I will not waste my money on this property ever again. completly dreadful experience.

Wasn’t told her was no hot water until we tried to check in. I think they could’ve told us when we were making reservations
