Let’s see, where to begin.
The tub diverter faucet didn’t work and there was very little hot water in the shower. The fridge made a knocking noise all night. The TV was set on the micro/fridge cabinet, which made the small screen look tiny. The metal housing under the A/C unit was loose and protruding from under the unit. There were multiple holes in the walls with wall anchors in them from old pictures and headboards. The motion sensor light switch at the door flashes a bright green LED all night long making a good night sleep impossible. And last but not least, the breakfast room attendant was rude and with multiple families with small children in the room turned on the TV and set the channel to some loud and obnoxious tele-vangelist, then left the room. After a while it seemed like no one was watching it and a guest changed the channel. A few minutes later the breakfast attendant came back in and when he saw the TV immediately changed the channel back to the offensive tele-vangelist. The first time we stayed here a year ago it was very nice. It has gone far downhill since. The only bright spot was the front desk attendant.
