I wish I could give this place a negative star rating. Just entering this place is horrible. It's a huge step up to open the door -- not an actual step but the doorway is raised at least a foot.
As soon as I entered the room I was unhappy since I could not immediately find the light switch. It was behind the door instead of right inside the doorway. Not having the light in a convenient location made me feel unsafe.
The bathtub had some sort of dark pink covering over it in areas that was peeling off. I'm not sure if it was supposed to look like that or not but it made me think I shouldn't use it. The bathroom light was not inside the bathroom nor was it right outside the bathroom. Instead it was around the corner. There also wasn't an option not to have the fan running.
The worst part was the room was it had the most horrible order ever that I think was coming from the carpet. The carpet was absolutely filthy and I kept my shoes on while walking on it.
I was exhausted after traveling for 10+ hours and this was only going to be a quick stop before catching another flight in the morning. Otherwise I would have left as soon as I saw the room.
