There was blood on the walls. The TV did not work, the fridge was leaking yellow liquid. It smelled awful. Had to bring in my own bedding. Disgusting

We were on the 2nd floor. Showers were horrible..freezing cold to scalding hot no matter how you set the faucet. Advertised wash room. There was one stackable and the dryer was "out of order" the entire stay. Otherwise, it was okay.

Our sink was broken and would not stopper for handwashing clothing items. We chose the hotel based on the pool/jacuzzi option - however the jacuzzi... More
