Dear guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and letting us know that you found the room clean. We appreciate it. We strive to deliver a great guest experience, but it sounds like we did not achieve our goal on this occasion. We apologize for the noise issues that caused you some inconvenience, and we are sorry for any failure in delivering on our commitment to provide you with a comfortable and pleasant place to stay. We will ensure that our team is fully briefed on your comments and see to it that all of our staff members are more conscious of this moving forward. Please know that do ask all guests to respect one another and keep the noise level to a minimum, but, unfortunately, not all of our guests abide by all rules. Should you consider staying with us again, please contact the front desk if there is ever any issue with noisy guests. Our staff will be happy to request the concerned guests to keep the noise down or to move you to another room to ensure a pleasant stay for you. It is disappointing if a guest leaves with less than first-rate experience - this is very unlike us. We know we can do better, and it would be an honor to have a chance to redeem ourselves with you and restore your faith in our facility and hospitality. Best Regards, Customer Care Team

There was mold all over the walls and ceiling in the bathroom. The door had a big gap in it where you could see daylight and cold air came right in

Rooms were clean, bed comfy. Was worried when I saw the neighborhood and exterior, but overall a good stay for one night. Gusto pizza and pasta within walking distance is fantastic too.
