I am actually at the hotel right now. First off no wireless internet so if you have a wifi phone or iPad you're SOL. Heater takes 10-15 minutes to start and with the draft coming from under the door and windows, heater can't keep up. Room is COLD!!! Then when I get back to the room in the evening, the ceiling is caving in and there is a massive leak from the pipes in the ceiling drenching the carpet. Had to pack and change rooms. Second room is colder than the first! Also, don't think about using their toiletries. Overall the rooms are in bad shape. Will not stay here ever again.
