This the most worst place ever and needs to be shut down by the health department. Dirty, possibly bug infested rooms. Heaters that barely work. The coldest possible shower without it being actual ice

My colleague was kick out of the room at 1:30 am because his name wasn't in the reservation. I made the reservation and they only asked for my name.
