Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property definitely had a ok view. The bathroom was dirty. The soap dispensers were not cleaned. The tub was dirty. Everything was just dirty. No tv stations available. The bedroom room walls were disgusting. I had to sleep on the other bed AWAY from the wall. Straight disgusting. I do not recommend staying there. Unless you really need a place to stay or you’re comfortable in dirty environments. Most people are

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very poorly maintained. Musty smell like a damp basement. To plug in the light by the bed you have to run the cord across the floor that leads to the bathroom. Vinyl flooring that was stained in multiple places. Worn bedding sheets and towels (frayed). Couch that you didn’t dare sit on. A soft mattress as in overused. Rusty ceiling tile grids. If it wasn’t so late I would’ve stayed somewhere else.
