Glad that you had a pleasant stay.

The room was absolutely filthy and there crumbs in my bed before I even got to lay in it, nail polish on the mirror in the restroom, a hole in the window, and the bathtub had a cigarette burn. To top all of that off, I woke up to find there were bed bugs in my mattress. When I told the front desk about the bed bugs, they were unphased and then asked me to show them proof. I requested a refund and asked for the manager to reach out to me and it’s been days and I still can’t get ahold of the manager.

Loud voices in hallway late night and again early in the morning. Bathroom door handle came off the door. Low water pressure in shower. Bugs found in room (only 2 but 2 too many). Looked like stink bugs. Can't argue with the reasonable price of the room. Stayed here before, will stay here again.
