In its defense, there was some renovation going on but my room was.....*sigh*. You open the door and the mildew smell hits you like a ton of bricks. The bathroom was incredibly small.

This was not a pleasant stay in any way. We were not greeted by Janet at the front desk. She apparently hates her job and did her best to annoy us. She was rude and condescending. It continually amazes me that I'm treated as though THEY are spending THEIR money and not the other way around. Things didn't get better.... More
