I can't beleive how dirty the place is. Dirty shower curtains. Dirty bed covers. Torn bed sheets. Filthy microwave. Hotel looks like a homeless camp. Only one positive, wood floor, would have been worse with a carpet.

It is very dirty! Roaches, my door... More

Booked this place with my mom. Arrived at night, place was dark. Rang a bell and spent a pretty penny on the room. Went to the room, and there was a homeless man standing IN FRONT OF OUR ROOM GETTING DRESSED.
