2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
$150 charge if you mess with the smoke detector…it was hanging off the ceiling with no batteries in it…mould in the shower…mattress caved in, making it impossible to sleep…you’d think with the money invested in the venue, they’d actually fix up the rooms?! Nope they’re as bad as the were in the late 70’s, early 80’s…every room stinks of cigarette smoke, even if you don’t smoke…especially requested level due to back unjury, nope upper level. Told they don’t have smaller rooms lower level, which I know they do because I’d braved staying there before. Would recommend staying elsewhere 👎
