We should have turned around immediately after seeing the place but we were in town for a wedding. And to give you some perspective, my husband and I are not squeamish, we have hiked backcountry, stayed in many a hostel and occasionally booked a seedy hotel to stay near an airport.
This place is the worst place we have ever laid our head. The highlights include: tape over holes in the screens, obvious mouse holes in the bathroom behind the toilet, and (worst of all) when I went to move the bedside table so that I could plug in my phone, dead roaches. We slept in the car because my skin was crawling. We attempted to contact management but no one answered the phone at night, returned our emails or was in the office at check out. This is a $50 a night hotel charging $144 a night. Spend the extra 30 and get some sleep.
Oh yeah... and we had called to request an upgrade to a king room the day we were arriving and were discouraged because the available room with a king size bed had a broken jacuzzi and was "seedier." I can only imagine what that room was like.
