We should have taken the hint that they give you 15 minutes to check over your room before you can no longer receive your money back. The odor coming from outside of our room was horrible. We woke up... More

The rooms were very small, beds were very uncomfortable!! People were partying all night outside our door. Wires to the lights were wrapped with duct tape. Pillows smelled of sweat. I would never stay there again!!!
