My wife and I have stayed in plenty of hotels over the years, and we both agreed this was our worst at any hotel. the first room had pet hair everywhere (floor, bed, chair, etc.) and smelled of perfumed cleaner. My wife is allergic, and she immediately began having an allergic reaction. The staff kindly agreed to switch our rooms. However, after walking through the maze of the building, at which point we passed double glass doors with a huge chain and padlock (why?), hallways with no working lights, we arrive at our "suite". We had to push hard to open the door, because a recent paint job had caused it to stick. Upon entering the room, we noticed the door to the balcony was completely open, and several of the lights didn't work.
We searched the room to make sure no one was inside. Fortunately, this room didn't smell, nor was there any pet hair. But, it was quite dingy and, certainly, hadn't been cleaned. There was dust, cobwebs, stains on the sheets, and human hair in various places. On top of that, there was poor water pressure in the shower and it didn't get very hot. The wallpaper was peeling in various places throughout the room.
Some of these things are understandable, but all of these things together made for a terrible stay. Apart from the staff, who were friendly and kind, the grounds and rooms were unacceptable.
