Damn, Things done changed!!!! For the worse.
Check in was easy. Room was in terrible condition. Broken light switches, rusty bathroon sink drain, dirty mirrors, half cleaned bathroom towel, odd brown substance stuck on carpet, chair upholstery with cigarette burn holes in them. One wash cloth and two towels.

8/10 Very Good

We got a non smoking room but it smelled like someone smoked in it. The duvet had cigarette holes in it. The microwave door was shattered so we could not use it. There were toenails on the floor. There was no rod for the toilet paper in the bathroom. No ice bucket. The room phone did not work (no dial tone). We had to ask 3 times for extra towels and pillows, the third time was after 3 hours of waiting. We only stayed one night but for what i paid i was expecting a little more from them.

4/10 Fair

Won’t stay again
Major water leaks in tub and shower. Two towels for three people, no soap provided, very cheap coffee maker, it didn’t work well. The best part was the gal who checked us in. She was very friendly
