First I found a broken picture and frame under the bunk bed mattress. I removed and put under bed while my child sleep in bed. I reported that problem along with AC unit making loud noise and the refridge was rusty on outside. A very horrible view. I went to front desk and showed pics and they stated they would send housekeeping and maintenance by room. They never came. The cleaning fee was higher than the nightly stay. No service for one night stay. The furniture in front room was very outdated.

The elevators were very hot, humid, & took forever to get to any floor we were waiting. No air in the elevators. All of your elevators need to be upgraded. Needs to be bigger to hold a few mire people as well.

Front desk staff was very rude and service was very poor. Toilet was broken and the Refrigerator was leaking so much water and we were mopping the time we were there. Carpet was dirty. Elevator was very hot and very slow and dirty. I was very upset and disappointed the money I spent to stay on this place. It’s my first time and it will be my last for sure. I will never recommend this place to any one.👎👎👎👎

Pros: clean
Cons: cheaper cleaning fees.
The hotel was nice and everything, but not necessarily a place to go to if you're going for your spring break. I'm particularly upset about the fact that I paid a $200 cleaning fee. My group left our area clean, put all the trash neatly together, yet when we trying to make it to our plane, they made us go and take out our trash. While this isn't one of the hardest things to do, the fact that I'm paying a $200 cleaning fee, I am trying to check out as soon as possible, and we had to rush back to our room to go take out our trash is very annoying.
