“What a dump !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2006

The first room they put me into had a bathroom that had very obviously not been cleaned whatsoever. Yuck!
I complained and got moved to another room that I was assured what clean and would make the remainder of my stay enjoyable.
It appeared okay ... not clean by most hotels standards ... but better than the previous room. Later that evening when I had to use the bathroom and lifted up the toilet lid, it was full of some fungus ... coated in green with lots of green floaties. I attempted to at least flush them but the toilet would not flush. That certainly explained the growth inside since this toilet had not been flushed in quite some time obviously for this to grow as it had. Anyway, I had a cold so went for kleenexs and the box was empty. So I used TP. Then went to wash my hands in the kitchen ssink. The water went on but then wouldnt go off since the handle was broken internally. I finally figured out a way to turn it off and left it alone until I complained the next morning. They got the issues fixed but still did not provide me with kleenexs, despite the holder in the bathroom. I asked for kleenexs a couple more times at the front desk but they never appeared.

This place sucks ! Do NOT stay there. I wont again.
