Where to begin....took about 30 minutes for us to get checked in at the front desk (Indian guy has no idea whats going on). While waiting we notice the sketchy people floating around the parking lot without cars...pregnant women, old black men with their son, white trashy looking people, Mexicans with white vans. Finally get into our room (thank god we didnt get shanked out in the parking lot!). First thing i notice is the no smoking sign....it smelt like someone went in right before we got there and smoked an entire pack of Marlboro Red's. Next i sit down on the bed....aka a rock with a sheet on it, stiff as anything (thankfully we brought our own pillows, otherwise the aids virus would have seep into my brain). Next i notice that there is a dead bug laying next to my bed on the floor (looked like a roach) my parents also said that there were multiple fly's flying around the room all night. In addition it was Jurassic Park outside of our door (some little kid running up and down the balcony for 2 hours) not to mention other filth that was roaming around outside. Overall i would recommend that any half way decent person go to a name brand place (holiday inn ect) because you will be sketched out beyond belief here. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT GO HERE!
