The inside of room smelled very clean but dont walk in socks because the Wal to the bathroom from bed will leave you socks black. Pubic hair was seen when toilet seat was lifted and in the shower. the shower did not drain quickly and spider webs on the lights in bathroom and on lights in room in between the 2 beds. the mirror int the bathroom had not been clean was dirty it was all in all pretty nasty my daughter swears there was pubic hair in the sheets . no phone and not enough towels for 4 of us in 2 queen beds. but that was ok because we were not staying to shower after the water not draining. Pretty gross but it was the cutters hotel and room it just needed a good cleaning and mopping and a phone to call and complain, mirrors no mirrors except the one int the bathroom.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was absolutely perfect for us. The room was nice and spacious with great storage options for all of our clothes. We ended up wanting to stay an extra night and they were more than accommodating. The staff was excellent.
