2/5 Poor

The people in the streets were very noisy and even aggressive with each other. They threw trash bags that broke open in the parking lot. The proprietor of the hotel had a very loud fight in the parking lot with a person who was leaving the hotel. Was accused of having a room where the toilet didn't work. She wouldn't refund the individuals money. The violence threatened at full volumn and with such horrible language was disturbing.
