Check in was 4 pm and we arrived At 5 pm and our room wasn't ready so we waited then when we got our room there were no towels. We had to go to the office to get towels. Then we went to get ice. Opened the bucket lid and the plastic had been removed and there was a dirty q tip inside. In the morning breakfast was from 7 to 9 am. Went to eat and office was locked. When they finally let me in they put out an almost finished gallon of milk for the cereal. The donuts were hard and there was no coffee in the machine and old apples. When we went to check out we had to wait 20 minutes as the office was locked again. The girl finally showed up and she said she went to a funeral. How can you run a hotel like that. Do not stay at this place.
