This place is a complete dump and totally misrepresents itself online. First of all, We were supposed to check in at 3pm, our room wasn't "ready" until 6pm. They continued to tell us it would be ready in 20 minutes...well it was ready 3 hours later. One would think that since they inconvienced us with the wait, we would have been able to enjoy the evening wine and cheese...but they were too busy to serve wine and cheese that day. Upon arrival to the room, there were rats turds on the bed, cockroaches on the floor, broken mirrors, dirty counter tops, no towels in the bathroom. So we asked for towels...18 hours later, the next afternoon, they finally brought us towels, telling us that they had just finished in the dryer. (That is some dryer!) It is like a homeless shelter inside. There are people who live there who are less than respectful to short term guests. They scream and fight all hours of the night, bang on the door and the walls, run up and down the stairs and share the hallucinating behaviors with you. It is so awful...I could go on for days, just do yourself and me a favor...NEVER STAY HERE!!!
