We booked in for one night before our flight out the next day. The room we had was cold, dated and had a strong musty smell.
When we attempted to put the heater on it was very noisy. After making a call to the front desk they sent an individual to review the situation. After hearing the heat unit he said he would bring us a mobile oil heater.
We paid $140.00 for the night. The room was no where woth this amount. Offering this as the only solution we decided to move out. When I explained our disappointment and the details supporting our decision, the individual in the office began to get defensive and basically said suit yourself.
There was no other options presented, such as another room (the place was empty).
We decided to try accross the street at the Sleep & Go. We not only found a clean and modern room, it was $114.00/night.
We should have looked at the reviews on Tripadvisor, they speak for themself.
It is hard to believe that they are able to run an accomodation in this manner.
