This has got to be the most disgusting place I have ever stayed in! Bathtub was full of pipe rust, towels were stained.The back door entry was covered in bird poop, smelled nasty, loud crowd, and to top it off, it really isn't secure, someone opened my room door in the night!! Needs to be condemned
