When I entered my room, I could not believe my eyes. It was overlooking a courtyard, that is if you could see out the only window in the room which was maybe two feet wide covered with shutters from the outside. The room was so dark that you could not see anything without a light on. It was small and confining. I believe they converted a broom closet into a room.
I requested a different room and was told, sorry no can do. If I wanted an upgrade, that is to say a room with a window to the outside it would be $75 more.
I was so turned off by this whole experience, we drove 3 hours to get to this place, and checked out within 30 minutes.
I will admit I did get the room on Priceline, and it got such glowing reviews, I was very excited when they accepted my bid of $126, which is of course, non refundable.
When I read other peoples' reviews, I think, "were they at the same place?", but I am sure they didn't get assigned a broom closet, which by the way did smell like one too.
