Bugs, mould, smells galore
Where to start.. we were greeted with friendly helpful staff and then... the elevators need updating, the doors dont close unless you press the floor you want to go to numerous times, the hallways smell musky and damp.. then you get to the room... mould all throughout the bathroom and shower, holes in the bath tub, mould on the shower curtains.. rotton wood throughout the bathroom bench... then there are the bugs/fire ants/sugar ants all over the place asked for them to be sprayed in the morning came back and nothing done asked again and got a quick spray and that was it... rooms and cupboards were dusy and smelly.. people going in and out at 3am 4am slamming their doors and being rowdy... I wont be staying here again.
