These rooms look like they’ve never been cleaned. The whole building including the rooms have this horrible musty smell. Missing light bulbs, broken handles and dirty everything. So no I would not come back here.

Traveled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Felt very unsafe, The drain was leaking all night, questionable stain on sheets, cob webs in room, first room I stayed was open as were some of the rooms around, the lock to the outside sliding door felt unstable. The team was nice but everything felt dirty, smelled and will not be staying there again.
