1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I've walked this planet now for 61 years and this is probably one of the most disgusting rooms that I've ever stayed in. Filthy carpet, filthy stained tub, black mold on bathroom ceiling, sooooo many issues too numerous to talk about here but will post a video on my StarrTile channel on YouTube. The worst was the chiggers OR bedbugs, not sure which it was that left raised itchy bumps on armpits and upper chest ! Never experienced that before in my life..I bought insect spray, fogger and bleach by day 2 but did no good. The only good part was the $25 I wasted on those products was offset by management giving last night free...BUT the $88 a night was a ripoff to begin with, this dump was barely worth $20 a night. The unfortunate thing is they closed down the day I left so this review won't help anyone.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
When you first walked into room, it looked very clean. Then I noticed an odor. Bed was raised high therefore making sitting on bed uncomfortable. Bed had plastic sheet taped to it with duck tape under bedsheet that kept coming off in corner. The fridge/freezer wasn’t defrosted. The wall next to the other bed had a huge hole in it. Bathtub was filthy and I saw the housekeeper and she apologized and took care of the matter quickly. Years ago I stayed here and it was very nice and I assumed it was going to be the same. I was wrong. I won’t be coming back to this place again.

Very Disappointed ☹️
The place is old and needs repair and updated. The bed was like sleeping in a bowl. There was only a fridge in the room no coffee pot or anything. Oh talking about coffee we went to the office lobby that you couldn’t enter lol. So we asked for coffee at the window and the lady said we could only have one cup because coffee was to high. Oh yeah please be careful in the tub there’s no anti slip pads and you will slip like I did. But anyway if you just need a place to crash it’s ok.

Keep your expectations low and it's fine.
It was ok. Could use a lot of cosmetic face-lifts, but everything was functional and working - (except the aerator in the jetted tub).
