The room looked nothing like the pictures. The bathroom door didn't close, the blankets were burnt, the room phone had dry throw up on it, and the tub drain didn't work.

Hotel clean, Staff friendly and my special requests were met to the tee! The gentleman that took my reservations, Eddie, was extremely helpful and friendly. When I arrived, my reserved rooms where not only ready (I requested/needed an early check-in time), but exactly what I had requested. Thank You Eddie!

Rooms were clean, nothing fancy... the gentlemen who checked us in Friday after noon was great. very nice, good personality... woman who check us out on Sunday was the total opposite. she would probably be a typical employee at Roses!!!
