The building smells of cigarette smoke upon entry. The lobby was decent with a sitting area for breakfast but the breakfast was the absolute bare minimum. The coffee was not good. The room was very dirty. They should fire their cleaners and hire new because there is a total lack of effort. Dirt and dust bunnies in the corners, every corner. The bedspread when pulled back was stained with multiple things, enough said. The tv was smudged and filthy, I didn't even turn it on because the on/off button was literally black. The bathroom doesn't have an outlet. The air conditioner worked great, the hotel was quiet, front desk staff was friendly. The towels are thread bare, the water ran rusty brown for a about 30 seconds every time I turned it on. This hotel would be much, much improved with a better cleaning staff. There is no excuse for such a high level of laziness. They are single handedly driving customers away.
