The hotel is terrible!!!!!!!!! My daughter got a room without a toilet. She needed to wait until the morning to go to our toilet. Carpets in rooms were spotty and looked like someone was killed. Lots of mess, lots of dump, were not towels in the rooms. We are not going to stay here any-more and we do not recommend.
