“I wanted to die..”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This place was situated in a GREAT place, the only thing wrong was the whole damn hotel itself. I got there a couple of hours ago & I had to tell my fiance that it looked nice in the pictures. Yeah right! NOTHING compared to the pictures. I didn't care that I had already spent my money on the reservation... We had to leave.. I wanted to throw up, the room stunk, the sheets were nasty. I was scared to even take my sandals off. The furniture was all worn out. The bathroom had 2 dead roaches.
