“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.
