We checked into this hotel and the room was clean so we thought it was a good find. After showering we determined the towels were like sandpaper. We went out to eat and when we returned a group of 6 or so Mexican males were gathered near our room sitting on the sidewalk drinking beer. They were talking and laughing... More
