check in - no towels in room, had to ask twice to get 2 towels. Sunday morning fire alarms go off in the entire building. Apparently the FD scheduled an 'unscheduled' visit and decided Sunday morning was the best time to wake everyone up. This lasted for over an hour. Yhe room above us had children running and jumping. Called...

Room didn't have towels and noticed others were requesting towels at the front desk when we there as well. The jacuzzi looked like the jacuzzi in the movie "Next Friday" without the condom. The breakfast, well we decided just to go out and eat breakfast since the muffins and all was roaming with mosquitos inside the case. Never again!

When we first arrived we were placed in a room that had dirty furniture, the ceiling in the bathroom was covered in mold and leaking, the tub was peeling. We complained and they moved us to a new room that was at least functional and no mold or cut and dirty furniture. They said they were in the process of...

The hotel was ok. The first day we got there the toilet broke. And our air conditioner had been leaking water so the carpet was wet. The night clerk didn't answer the phn when we called down. The furniture was old and broken. After the toilet was fixed and the carpet dried it was a good stay.

“There are no good rooms as far as I can tell.”
  • stained curtain would not cover window so we had to close it in the door
  • This was the iron. covered in tape and bare wires where plug should be
  • The phone was missing a cord. The front desk was notified and did nothing for the 3 days I was t
  • curtains didn't close so we used the room pen to fasten them.
