What a dump! We stayed there last Fall. The beds were never made! No Towels ! Smoke alarms didn't work - no batteries. No soap! Just dirt! Never again! Not even the board of health could fix this dump!

Did you hear about the auto race between the US and the USSR? NY Papers say "US Wins!" Soviet News reports "Russia comes in Second, US next to Last!" Check the date of the review! Management changed over in November 2010. The new manager used to be the cleaning woman. She has no idea of what she is doing as... More
