Was given a key to a "clean" room, only to walk into what looked like a frat-party day-after scene...complete with the aroma of vomit (even outside of the room!) Not my idea of "clean"! The clerk didn't seem to care much...

my boyfriend and I stayed at this totally disgusting hotel 27 and 28th of March 2015. I cannot believe that this place can even be called a hotel.

The free breakfrast was great. I used wifi too.i loved the bed and I used the alarm clock. I partied in the room last night and I watched tv shows called criminal minds and game shows. The room was great.

A few minutes after we had entered the room, we had received a call from the front desk asking if everything was okay.

Most hotels have extra plugs for use and a full shower/bath but not this place. It seemed as though the hotel was imcomplete and left me wanting more.

Booked this hotel through Priceline.com, on arrival parking lot was full..pub/bar was on the end of this hotel. Checking in at the front desk was an experience. There were several intoxicated guests, using foul language and one wanted the police called because he claimed his suitcase had been stolen. After receiving the keys to our room we try to make...
