When I stayed here there was terrible service. The manager was nice at first but than became really mean. I than used a cup and when I went to wash it there was no soap. I am not sure if the cup was clean when I used it. Than they have like a reading area so I checked that out. I saw a book that looked interesting and when I opened it there was a booger in it. I was so disgusted I did not pick up another book for the rest of my stay. I than went to the bathroom to take a number 2 and there was no toilet paper I screamed for help but no one came. I was than forced to use my underwear I tore that into pieces to conserve what I needed. I can honestly say this happened to me twice and the 2nd time I was lucky because I was going to take a shower anyway.
