Where to begin...We arrived to a parking lot that made us uncomfortable, not well policed or patrolled. Upon checking in we went to our room to find that there was a six pack cooking in the sink, surprise the room was occupied. We were than given a second room that had not been serviced. The third room was acceptable, but when we came back with our bags it had been given to other guests. The fourth room was fine. Throught out all of this we asked to see the manager, who was "occupied, schmoosing travel agents". By the time we got our room, there were no dining options so we had to re-experience "The Hood" which was also known as the parking lot. The next afternoon we returned to find that our room had not been made up, and housekeeping was gone. We stamped our feet sufficiently that the room was eventually made up. Whenever we went to the desk, it was like they had no idea who we were or what was going on. I spoke to the Manager, or who they said was the Manager and he was unaware of any problems.
Although we were booked for five nights, we cut and ran the next morning to another property and had a much better experience.
I have traveled extensively, and this was without a doubt the worst experience I had ever been subjected to. The property is just flat worn out, the towels would be pitched out at a car wash or maybe that was where they were procured.
Will we be back, not a chance. Would we recommend the property, not a chance. Have we kept this a secret, not a chance.
