This is the smallest hotel room I have ever seen. Very overpriced for the room. I guess I was paying for the location. Nickel and dimed me on what looked like complementary water. Room was so small the only place for the ironing board was under the bed. When I pulled it out I found a prior guest's dirty underwear.
